Dwell.com: Impeccably Restored John Lautner Home

The Tyler House, 1950
Listed for the first time in 30 years, the Tyler House is a timeless dwelling set on a secluded lot just minutes from Ventura Boulevard.
John Lautner famously said “architecture is an art”—and although his masterpieces dot the streets of Los Angeles, very seldom do they surface on the market. Now, a lucky buyer has the chance to scoop up the architectural gem known as the Tyler House, which Lautner designed in 1950.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of Studio City, the multilevel home is surrounded by a grove of protected oaks and sycamores. For the last three decades, it has been owned by the award-winning artist Peter Tangen, who treated the property to a complete restoration in the mid-1990s.
