This midcentury modern / modernist gem (delete as applicable) is now on the market, so if you have money to burn and like its striking looks, the 1960s John Lautner-designed The Wolff House in Los Angeles, California, USA is ready and waiting for you.
Described by the agent as ‘one of the most important architectural statements in Los Angeles and the world’ (some statement), the Wolff House is a modernist icon in wood, stone and glass. It also sits high above the Sunset Strip with the kind of ‘exceptional’ views you would expect. The Wolff House has now been meticulously restored in line with Lautner’s vision of ‘form, space and function’, mixing a plethora of period features with some more contemporary high-end finishes. You can see the impressive end result here.
Space-wise, there are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, along with receptions, a breakfast area, dining area, family room, guest/staff quarters and a dressing area. The living room is perhaps the most significant room here, with near 16 foot ceilings plus walls of glass to view the city below. Stunning. Outside, there’s a pool and pavilion plus an additional guest house with three bedrooms, and an office,or media room. Room for your car or cars too, as you might expect.
The hardwood floors, exposed stone, sharp angles, premium finishes, amazing views and flawless renovation are just some of the selling points here. But you can see more from all these amazing photos. If you want it, you’ll have to find something in the region of $7,995,000.
