Homes by big-name mid-century Modernist architects including John Lautner, Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra were on the market in 2012 -- at prices that may not be seen again soon.
Among the heavy hitters were two homes by engineering-minded modernist Lautner.
At the Foster Carling house in the Hollywood Hills, a retractable wall of glass separates the outdoor part of the swimming pool from an interior portion in the living room. The asking price is $2.995 million.
In Malibu, a post-and-beam single-story house designed by Lautner as an ocean-view retreat features strong horizontal lines, unusually angled walls and windows and a triangular fireplace that juts into the living room. Listed at $15.9 million, it was removed from the market at the end of December.
Schindler used movable concrete forms to create El Pueblo Ribera Court in La Jolla. This concrete, glass and redwood unit is one of six with views of legendary surfing beach Windansea. The asking price is $2.2 million.
The Neutra-designed Sidney R. Troxell House in Pacific Palisades makes the most of its floor-to-ceiling windows to take in views of the ocean, city and mountains. It has been reduced to $3.899 million.
