5 beds | 6.00 baths | 1 half baths | 6,180 SQ.FT.

Innovative, breathtaking, and legendary, this is the Alden Schwimmer Residence, by John Lautner, FAIA. Commissioned in 1982 to build a “horizontal castle”, Lautner set out to create a masterpiece designed with exquisite stone, concrete, and wood. His design is well thought out from the cantilevered pavilion to the six stone columns throughout the home. These “turrets” not only lend to the design, but also function: a bathroom, shower, wet bar, closet, and pantry. A private gate and curved driveway wrapping around the hillside lead you to the large entry motor court. Entering in, one encounters the details and ingenious craftsmanship from soaring ceilings, curved rafters, and glass walls. With over 6,000 square feet of living space, the 5 bedroom 6 bath home has so much to offer from the maid’s quarters, to the home’s library with a massive stone fireplace, and its private pool. Sitting on 4.33 acres above Benedict Canyon, the home provides dramatic 180 degree views of Los Angeles spanning to the Pacific Ocean. Modern amenities await with the property’s recent multi-million dollar renovation by Lautner-trained architect Duncan Nicholson.
