Which Wolff House Do You Want?

There are currently not one but two architecturally significant Wolff Houses on the market. First we have John Lautner’s Wolff House. Built in 1961 this carries a much heftier price tag – which is probably why it’s been on the market for almost a year. This home is one of the most unique homes in all of Los Angeles and fully demonstrates Lautner’s genius and creativity.

Next we have Thornton Ladd’s Wolff House in the Hollywood Hills. While a few years older, this is the lesser-known of the two homes but is just as impressive. This one-0f-a-kind “floating glass pavilion” just hit the market and features panoramic ocean and city views.

So which Wolff House would you buy if money was no object? Personally I think I’d go with Lautner’s. He’s always been one of my favorite archiects and how often do you get a chance to buy a designated Historical Monument?

If you’d like to set up a showing for either house please email me!
