Craig Ellwood’s Smith House in Brentwood


Now on the market, Craig Ellwood’s Smith House, circa 1958, located in Brentwood’s Crestwood Hills neighborhood.

This incredible architectural feat is as dramatic as it is iconic.

In 1960, The Architectural Review wrote: “Periodically there comes to light a building that – whatever its other merits – seizes the attention by the way it exemplifies some aspect of modern architecture. Such a structure is the hillside house in California house by Craig Elwood.”

This special houseĀ has been widely published andĀ is close to its original condition, just waiting for a devoted restoration.

Enjoy the “Queen’s Necklace” view of the Santa Monica Bay and Palos Verdes from multiple points.

At night, the house appears to hover effortlessly over the canyon.

This is an incredible home and a piece of architectural history.
