The Wolff Residence is on the market and represented by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ agents Simon Salloom and Tyson Park. The home, designed and built by John Lautner, AIA in 1961 is a modernist architectural masterpiece that blends elements of wood and stone and features stunning views from 16’ floor to ceiling windows. The awe-inspiring four-bedroom home sits on a private cul-de-sac, includes a beautiful pool and one-bedroom guesthouse.
Taking full advantage of the terrain, The Wolf Residence climbs down a steep hillside and is reminiscent of a tree house. Lautner often stated that this was his finest homage to his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright. Expressive engineering and design seamlessly integrate the residence into its natural environment. The home is so impressive that in 2006 actor Vincent Gallo purchased the home and had it classified as a historic building under the Mills Act; a special designation that allows the city to award homeowners breaks on property taxes in exchange for restoring and maintaining their properties.
Designed with an uncompromising vision, a large eucalyptus tree grows inside. The main residence and adjoining guest house share a “floating” copper-lined roof and allow the compound exceptional flexibility for personal, creative and professional endeavors. The home is only minutes from Sunset Blvd. yet located on one of the City’s most private streets with a park-like landscape that offers a peaceful refuge.
