Case Study House #22 Poster Signs

Grid View

Sure, it's way out in Tujunga, but under $600k for a "virtually unaltered" Pierre Koenig? The Scott House was built in 1956 and, according to PropertyShark and to more than one poster on the Lotta Living forums, is still owned by the Scott family today. The listing calls the two bedroom house "an early experiment in [Koenig's] Steel and Glass narrative," and you can certainly see the resemblance to his famous Case Study Houses #21 and #22 (also known as the Stahl House, site of one of the most iconic LA images ever). Lotta Living poster Josquin has details: "The steel Scott house is L shaped with the carport filling the inside of the L. There are no windows open to west side, street side, of the house. The large window to the great room is on the south side of the house. This is one of his earliest steel houses and is a modest 1250 square feet." The listing has it at a little more than 1,400 square feet, but does say that "the home's efficient floor plan reaches well beyond its modest square footage with nearly every room opening to the natural beauty of the foothills through massive sliding glass panels." It also calls the house "a singular restoration opportunity." That asking price again is $585,000.
