Price: $2,485,000

Year Built: 1940

Footprint: 1,491 square feet (three bedrooms, two baths)

Lot Size: 20,000 square feet (approximately 0.45 acres)

From the agent: "The historical Lukens Home, one of Los Angeles’s premier International Style homes, was masterfully designed in 1940 by minimalist Southern California architect Raphael Soriano for notable ceramicist Glen Lukens. That specifically inspired Gehry to turn towards architecture for the first time. The rest, as they say, is history. This home features classic Bauhaus design elements including a flat roof, large overhang eaves, and ribbon-band steel-frame windows."

Nestled in the original garden of the West Adams Lindsay Mansion, the property rests on a nearly half-acre lot in L.A.’s Jefferson Park neighborhood and is encapsulated by lush landscaping in all directions.

Wrapped in windows, the open kitchen features all-new appliances and custom cabinetry.

The three bedrooms offer quiet, light-filled spaces for rest and relaxation.

Set on an approximately 20,000-square-foot lot, the home includes a large basketball court.

A large deck and a screening area await in the backyard. "This property satisfies the modern-day design enthusiast while providing the perfect indoor/outdoor lifestyle," notes the agent.
