Sheats Goldstein House by John Lautner. Photography © Tom Ferguson.

 

This is a well known John Lautner house in Beverly Hills originally built for the Sheats Family in 1963 and currently owned by James Goldstein who purchased it in 1972. Goldstein engaged Lautner to make alterations and additions to the house which had fallen into some repair, and the two remained close until Lautner’s death in 1994.

One of the more major changes to the property was the purchase of the adjoining property, known as the Concannon Residence and also designed by Lautner. With Lautner’s blessing it was demolished to make way for a new structure designed in sympathetic style by architect Duncan Nicholson who formerly worked for Lautner.

The tour was hosted by the lovely Roberta Leighton whose intimate knowledge of the house both architectural and socially kept us all thoroughly entertained (as if seeing the house itself wasn’t enough already).
