About the House:
Located on the slopes above Beverly Hills, this Angelino gem has been the host of films, celebrity guests and scores of admiring architectural professionals and enthusiasts.  Current occupant James Goldstein purchased the home in 1972 and spent years restoring the home with Lautner himself.  He has been working for over 10 years with Lautner protege, Duncan Nicholson, on an addition that includes a guest house, tennis court, nightclub and terrace.  Staying true to Lautner’s original aesthetic, all components of the addition make use of poured-in-place concrete, angular corners and stunning views of Los Angeles.

  2. Photography is allowed, but please listen carefully to our tour guide in case there are restricted areas.
  3. This is a large group to move through the tour in one piece, so please stay together and be respectful of our guide’s requests.  Keep in mind that someone lives in this beautiful place.
