Black-and-white shots by famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman offer a vintage look at the Fred Antelline House, designed by a 19-year-old Jon P. Antelline for his father.
Perhaps you're not familiar with the name Jon P. Antelline, but the post-and-beam home he designed at just age 19 speaks for itself. Originally built in 1960 for Antelline's family, the home recently resurfaced decades after capturing the attention of iconic architectural photographer Julius Shulman. The vintage photos—shown below along with modern images—show off the circular living area and other unique features of the home, which was recently listed for the first time since the '80s.
Shulman, who passed away in 2009, helped bring to light work from many of the twentieth century's biggest architects—Neutra, Wright, Eames, Koenig, Soriano, and others. Through the prominent period magazine Arts & Architecture and other publications, Shulman's photography of midcentury-modern design in California spread the style around the world. His photos of the Fred Antelline House, taken in 1961, offer a chance to look back at the home shortly after its completion.
The house is among just three of Antelline's residential designs that were built in San Diego and the only one still standing. Offering four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the multi-level home is spread out across nearly 4,000 square feet and sits on a three-and-a-half-acre plot north of downtown in Rancho Santa Fe. The property also comes with a backyard pool, tennis court, barn, and pasture. Keep scrolling to see more photos of this $3,500,000 property—including several by Shulman.
