Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

2011 Home Of The Year

Update: The votes are in! The Norton House in Pasadena was crowned Best Home Of 2011. This Buff & Hensman beauty received 23% of the votes (followed by 3705 Alzada and 1160 Chateau in a tie for second).


My vote was for 1160 Chateau, but the Norton House was a close second. It’s such a great house and I’m not surprised it won. Thanks for voting!

2011 was a great year for real estate in LA. We saw Lloyd Wrights, Lautners, Buff and Hensmans, and a host of other architecturally significant homes hit the market. I’ve blogged about so many great houses this year, but the following are my favorites.

The Sowden House in Los Feliz.

Luis Barragan remodel in Bel Air.

The Schnabel House in Brentwood.

Walt Disney House at 4053 Woking Way in Los Feliz.

1973 Redesdale Ave in Silver Lake.

3705 Alzada Road in Altadena.

John Lautner’s Polin House in the Hollywood Hills.

1160 Chateau Road in Pasadena.

And the winner:

The Norton House in Pasadena!

See the best homes of 2010.

Spread the love

  1. Didn’t vote but have to agree – that Redesdale house notwithstanding; pretty awesome and awesome location – Norton is a really spectacular house. Sigh, one can dream…
