We are in LOVE with The Agency’s newest real estate gem overlooking Sunset Strip in LA. The home is well-designed with a perfect mix of natural elements and modern design. Check out the amazing sculptural steel wall – architecture as art. And, of course, we love the indoor-outdoor flow throughout the home, floor-to-ceiling windows, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, sparkling pools and water features, spa-bath luxury, and a to-die for view. Best way to live in LA.

Windows the size of garage doors retract completely in this home so you can walk right out onto huge terraces suspended above the crashing surf. The nearly 12,000-square-foot home took 10 years to design and construct with dozens of amenities including a steam room, theater and a 12-car garage, but the sparkling Emerald Bay is the ultimate amenity. Huge walls of glass put it front and center.

A. James Speyer’s mid century modern glass and steel house has just sold for $1.06 million. The 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 5,300 square feet home was built in 1953 for textile designers Ben and Frances Rose. Later, a complementary glass pavilion was added about 50 feet from the house. The glass walls literally blur the lines between indoor and outdoor and is situated in a wooded area of Chicago, cantilevered over a ravine.
The sleek house was featured in John Hughes’ 1986 film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” as the home of Cameron Frye (played Alan Ruck).
The Sotheby’s listing had amazing photos of the home, retrieved from Midcenturia.com:

We love the way Rudolph Schindler designed this home for indoor-outdoor living. The home is U-shaped around the patio/courtyard with all the doors and windows opening up to truly experience the outdoors as an essential part of living in the home. The polished concrete floors shine with the overhead tech lighting system “floating” in between each of the redwood beams overhead. This house was definitely modern in 1023 and it is still modern by todays standards. The owners did an amazing job of adding their design sensibility with the furnishings (Kenneth Conbonpue) while letting the house itself continue to be the star.
