The John Lautner designed house, located behind the gates in the prestigious Malibu Colony is considered by many to be one of the most significant homes ever to be built in Malibu or along the Southern California coast. The home was last on the market in 2009 and sold for almost $14m. There are likely numerous people who have been waiting for it to come back on to the market.
While I have not spent time in this John Lautner house, I have been to social events at Lautner’s Segal house on Carbon Beach and know first hand about the magic spell these homes can put on people. The moment you walk in to these homes you begin to understand why people would pay any amount of money to obtain one. The first reaction when passing through the front door is “WOW”….followed by repeated “WOWs”. Your eyes get pulled in all directions at once. The ocean view, framed by walls of glass, begs for attention, but then you notice boulders on the interior forming a nice sitting area. You contemplate if they were there naturally or skillfully set in place. Then you look up at the wave of concrete arching over your head wondering how it was poured, its weight, and admire the grain patterns left from the molds. It’s a sensory smorgasbord and you’ll never want to leave. One lucky buyer won’t have to.
Mark my words, this John Lautner house will sell fast with no less than a dozen showing requests in the first week. Prospective buyers need to be very qualified.
