The Bergren Residence boasts hallmarks of iconic Lautner design, including a striking roofline, walls of glass, and breathtaking hilltop views.
With a prolific career that spanned nearly 60 years, acclaimed American architect John Lautner has left his mark across Southern California. As one of the original Taliesan Fellows, Lautner imbued his works with lessons learned from Frank Lloyd Wright, including an "organic architecture" approach, which can be clearly seen in one of his earlier works known as the Bergren House. Luckily for us, this property has just hit the market for $1,999,000.
Fresh off a sensitive restoration by current owner Christian Lamb, the 1,582-square-foot abode maintains its architectural integrity and has gained updated appliances along with a pared-down palette of timber, glass, steel, and concrete.
Lautner originally built the home in 1953 as a one-bedroom bachelor pad for guitarist Ted Bergren. After Bergren married, the architect was invited back to expand the residence with a second bedroom and another bath.
In addition to two bedrooms and two baths, the midcentury home comes with an attached carport for two vehicles and two outdoor patios.
7316 Caverna Drive, Los Angeles, CA is now being listed by Patricia Tercek, Barry Sloane, and Marc Silver of Sotheby’s International Realty for $1,999,000. See the full listing here.
