One of John Lautner’s earliest residential projects, built in Los Angeles’ Sherman Oaks in 1950, is for sale for the first time ever priced at $1.6m.

The swooping, circular Louise Foster House was built for a school teacher and was home to TV actor Rex Linn for 20 years. It’s set over two levels, with ribbed red-wood skin that emphasises its geometric proportions.

The two-bedroom Los Angeles property is on the market via Aaron Kirman of Compass, and its interiors are pretty spartan – though it does feature an impressive ‘sunburst’ beamed ceiling, hardwood floors and an outdoor terrace with views of the San Fernando Valley.
