Throughout his half-century career as a practicing architect and a professor of architecture at the University of Southern California, Pierre Koenig designed many homes, including Case Study House #21 and #22, masterpieces of American modern architecture post World War II. But the culmination of his vision is arguably the home he built for himself in 1985.
And now the steel-and-glass house in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood is on the market for the first time in 32 years, asking $3.795 million, per the listing with Douglas Elliman posted Monday.
Following Koenig’s death at age of 78 in 2004 and his widow’s passing 10 years later, the house was handed down to his stepchildren, Barry and Tom Kaufman.
“We undertook a three-year meticulous restoration to bring it up to modern standards, while using as many of the original materials, paints and fabrics with attention to all the detail,” said Brandon Kaufman, step-grandson of the late Koenig.
The three-story house, historically archived as Koenig House #2 by the L.A. Conservancy, offers approximately 3,000 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half bathroom, a parlor and a media/family room, according to the listing. In addition, Koenig’s architectural studio opens to a courtyard with fountain, a music room and decks.
Joshua Altman, star of Bravo network’s “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles,” and his brother, Matthew Altman, have the listing.
