The West House (Case Study House #18), 1948


199 Chautauqua Blvd, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272


Open House: Sunday, April 14, 2-5pm

A National Register of Historic Places treasure. John Entenza’s Case Study Houses #’s 8, 9, 18, & 20 by Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Rodney Walker, and Richard Neutra are here together, at the edge of the continent, on a bluff in Pacific Palisades. This enclave of architecture, if open to the public, would be a sure contender to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With the properties privately owned, and in strong hands, that is not to be. But with this offering one aficionado can join the club.

Today, of the four Case Study Houses, Walker’s is the only one oriented to ocean vistas which are omnipresent from first opening the front door, and throughout the house. The residence, in keeping with the Case Study Program is modest, with an open-plan living/dining area with eleven-foot ceilings, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a den/office, and a uniquely Rodney Walker indoor/outdoor garden room. It is an ideal close-in getaway just a few minutes’ walk to the beach. Sale includes preliminary concept plans for a second house on the oversized lot by Architectural Digest 100 Starchitect Tom Kundig.
