The Foster Carling House, 1947-1950. John Lautner Architect. This is one of his early and most significant works. Situated on a hillside, 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. Truly stunning. This is a rare opportunity to own and live in one of LA's most iconic homes.
