The last architectural gem crafted by the renowned Pierre Koenig, marked by its distinctive yellow spiral staircase, steel columns, and expansive glass windows, is now up for grabs.
Koenig, an American architect, gained rapid acclaim for his designs, notably The Stahl House and The Bailey House in Los Angeles, which stand as two of the most iconic homes globally.
A proud alumnus and later faculty member of the University of Southern California, Koenig dedicated his career to teaching from 1954 until his passing in 2004, as highlighted by Top Ten Real Estate.
The Schwartz House, Koenig’s final project, epitomizes modernist architectural principles, featuring a blend of sleek metal structures and extensive use of glass.
This residence spans over 2,390 square feet and includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest suite, and a versatile extra room.
A striking yellow metal spiral staircase connects the home’s three levels, serving as a central artistic element.
The design ensures that each room, complemented by small balconies and vast windows, basks in abundant natural light.
A shaded patio, supported by steel columns, provides a serene outdoor space overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden.
Nestled in Santa Monica, the property is conveniently located near Ginger Rodgers Beach and Rustic Canyon Park, and just a short journey from the bustling downtown area, renowned for its pristine beaches, an array of Michelin-starred dining options, and chic boutiques.
The neighbourhood, known for its celebrity residents such as Tom Cruise, Tobey Maguire, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Bruno Mars, adds to the allure of this exclusive offering.
The Schwartz House is currently listed for sale at £3.57 million ($4.55 million).
