THE FOSTER CARLING HOUSE BY JOHN LAUTNER
The Foster Carling House, 1947-1950. John Lautner Architect. This is one of his early and most significant works. Situated on a hillside above Mulholland, the property has views of downtown and across the city and valley.
The home has innovative features that are still exciting today, including a pool that flows from the exterior into the living room, separated by a retracting wall of glass. Controls move both the glass wall and an entire living room section and built-in sofa, allowing it to swing out into the yard and face the downtown skyline. The incredible hexagonal living space is free of internal columns and formed by external steel beams. This was Lautner’s first of many future collaborations with yacht builder John de la Vaux and signature details include old-growth redwood planking, raised fireplace, polished concrete floors, built-in furniture and detailed woodwork throughout.

Neutra/Hoag Triplex in Beachwood Up For Sale For First Time
Two great architects, an income property, and a nice location on Gower in Beachwood Canyon? Yeah, this one’s a winner. The now-triplex started life as a Spanish two-bedroom; its expansion is one of the first LA works by the great modern architect Richard Neutra. Here’s the listing: “Neutra was hired in 1934 by the Rajagopal family renowned educators and architectural socialites, to expand their existing 2BR/1BA Spanish home to accommodate friends and family. Neutra’s addition was the upper 1BR/1BA unit which showcases an early example of his distinct style. Later, Paul Hoag was commissioned to build an additional studio apartment on the property.” Take Sunset’s Rob Kallick, who shares the listing, adds that both buildings have their own garages and private gardens. Asking price for the property, which has never been up for sale before, is $1.2 million
“A fantastic Richard Neutra post & beam home on the market for the 1st time in 42 years!!!”Originally a 1Bd/1Ba, the home was extensively renovated in approx 1990 to nearly double its size.” “The renovation was designed and overseen by Dion Neutra and exudes the feel and look of what the Neutra name stands for.” Hmmm … we suspect many people will beg to differ with that last part. That being said, the two-bedroom, two-bath residence isn’t without its charms, such as its private, woodsy setting, high ceilings, clerestory windows, brick fireplace, and mountain views. Sited on a .34-acre lot within the much-hyped Ivanhoe school district, it’s asking $839,000.
