John Lautner’s iconic Wolff Residence is for sale

One of John Lautner’s personal ‘favourite five’ homes is for sale – the dramatic Wolff Residence, designed as a homage to his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright.

The 1961 Los Angeles property sits on a steep plot above Sunset Plaza in Hollywood Hills West. It was commissioned by interior decorator Marco Wolff Jr as a riposte to Wright’s iconic Fallingwater House and tumbles down the hillside as a series of staggered rectangles built from stone, glass and copper.

A vast living room flanked by 16ft-long windows crowns the modernist property alongside a modernized kitchen and dining room. On the middle floor is the master bedroom suite, while an angular swimming pool and deck fills the bottom level, two stories above the street.

The Wolff Residence is on the market for a hefty $6.5m with George Salazar and Tilsia Acosta of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties. Still, you do get a lot of bang for your buck. A copper-lined roof connects it to an adjoining three-bedroom guesthouse, added by Lautner in 1963.
