Grid View

Location: Pacific Palisades, Calif.
Price: $15,950,000
The Skinny: Built on a bluff above the Pacific in 1950, the Entenza House, widely known as Case Study No.9, was designed by two titans of midcentury design, Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen. When the house sold in 1991 for $1.6M, it was badly in need of a restoration. Then architect Barry Berkus came along, restored the Case Study house and built a brand-new four-bedroom mansion just yards away, obscuring the original views of the beach and ocean. Now the Entenza House serves as the guest house to the Berkus-designed main house, and the package is being offered for almost $16M. The compound last sold, in 2010, for $10M, so someone is looking to make a pretty penny on a quick flip.

The Case Study House Map of Los Angeles

By Adrian Glick Kudler

Los Angeles is full of fantastic residential architecture in styles running all over from Spanish Colonial Revival to Streamline Moderne. But the Arts & Architecture-sponsored modernist Case Study Houses are both native to SoCal and particularly emblematic of the region (thank you, photographer Julius Shulman). The CSHes were intended to be relatively affordable, replicable houses for post-War family living, with an emphasis on "new materials and new techniques in house construction," as the magazine's program intro (pdf) put it. Architects included the still-widely-remembered (Charles Eames, Richard Neutra) and the known-only-to-archinerds (JR Davidson, Thornton Abell). A&A ended up commissioning 36 houses and apartment buildings; a couple dozen were built and about twenty still stand in the greater Los Angeles area (there's also one in San Rafael, a set in La Jolla, and one in Phoenix), although some have been remodeled. Here's a guide to all the houses left to see (but keep in mind that, true to LA form, most are still private residences; the Eames and Stahl Houses are occasionally open to visitors). As for the wonky house numbering, post-1962 A&A publisher David Travers writes that the explanation is "inexplicable, locked in the past."
