Rodney Walker’s Asher Residence Hits the Market for $3M
Known for the three designs he contributed to Arts & Architecture magazine's Case Study House Program, Rodney Walker actually saw himself as a designer and a "hands-on builder," not an architect. Walker was known for his innovative style and modernist vision—qualities that led Dr. Leonard Asher and his wife Betty to commission Walker to build them a family home on a site in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Sherman Oaks. Despite its grand scale, the final scheme for the Asher's home still retained the spirit of Walker's Case Study Work. According to the listing agent, Crosby Doe, the residence "stands as one of the most important works of Walker’s legacy."
The 2,598-square-foot home features a flexible floorplan with four bedrooms, three-and-a-half-baths, an open-plan living, dining, and den, plus a lower studio/media room with its own separate entrance. Other highlights of the home include extensive original wood paneling, built-in-furniture and shelving, beautifully designed light panels, walls of glass, both indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and a rooftop deck with spectacular views.
