The Tim Olsen gallery in Sydney is hosting a show of Paul Davies architecturally inspired paintings. A lot of them are sold already but the work really sings and I am sure Tim would ship to the US if anything took your fancy!
Great Silver Lake house in the Los Angeles Times Home section this weekend.
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.
My husband keeps sending me links to cool houses for sale in Los Angeles. He knows I want to buy a house…I’m sick of renting! But according to Brian these houses are for the blog…so thoughtful. The first is a Schindler in Woodland Hills (above) and the other is a Neutra in Pacific Palisades (below).
Looking through the LA Times real estate section this morning I was reminded that Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann house is for sale ($12.9 million). LA-based photographer Tim Street Porter got in to shoot it. The last time we were in Palm Springs we made a point of visiting the house – you can see very little from the street I really enjoyed Tim’s shots. And now you can see more shots on the architectureforsale.com
