house: for sale


The LA Times did a big story yesterday on architectural gems selling for a steal. I’ve been covering that story for a while (click here and here and here). They interviewed Crosby Doe, who often lists great houses and sold his first Neutra house in 1974. “I haven’t seen so many opportunities in terms of choice and relative value since the ’70s,” said Doe in the article. “Three years ago people would call me from all around the world and say, ‘I want a Lautner,’ and there were none available.”

The real estate section is one of the first places I go when the paper arrives on the weekend. Yesterday I found a Neutra house in Bel Air (above)…for $14.9 million. A lovely Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Banos for $2.3 million (below) and the Craig Ellwood house for $885,000 (bottom). $14m is not exactly cheap but perhaps if you are buying at that level it’s a bargain? The house is certainly amazing.
