Looking for a way to own a sliver of history, while at the same time enjoying all that Bel Air living has to offer? If so, this home – also known as Case Study House No. 16 – could be just what you’re looking for.
Sponsored by Arts & Architecture, the Case Study House program aimed to create affordable homes for post-World War ll families during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. This particular residence – nominated for the National Register of Historic Places – was the first of three homes designed by the renown Craig Ellwood (and it is the only surviving, in-tact example of his work for the Case Study program).
The largely original 2-bedroom, 2-bath modular steel residence is surrounded by mature trees and provides some of the most fantastic views of LA. Inside you will find a natural rock fireplace, tile flooring, and grooved fir siding. The outdoor covered patio is perfectly placed in the flat backyard, and provides you with the ideal spot for entertaining.
Located at 1811 Bel Air Road, this piece of architectural history is on the market for only the second time ever and is listed for sale at $3 million. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
