A meticulously maintained, architectural time capsule in L.A. is available for the first time since 1960.

Built in 1951, the midcentury property at 2179 Mandeville Canyon is a piece of architectural history—and one of the earliest works by iconic Case Study architect Pierre Koenig.  

A stylish, standout home with excellent bones, the home hasn't been on the market since 1960 and is now being offered in an off-market sale by Maurice Woolf and Bethany Colson Woolf of Californian Estates
