I have been wanting to tour this magnificent private residence for over a year now and this is one of those rare opportunities when the owner opens the door to the public for a hefty price.. But its worth it to see this iconic house along with drinks and appetizers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the A & D website:

Please join us on February 21, 2013 for the first salon in the series at the John Lautner designed Sheats-Goldstein residence. 

This exquisite landmark is one of the best known examples of architect John Lautner's work. Located high above Los Angeles with breathtaking views, the house and surrounds will seduce you with balmy tropical nature, tactile concrete and glass, and tease your senses with precipice and surprise!   

The evening will include special tours of parts of the house and property not usually accessed by the public. Come immerse yourself in sublime architecture while enjoying the company of fellow enthusiasts, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.  This is an experience not to be missed.

The docents at the Sheats-Goldstein House told us "This is probably the most dangerous house you'll ever be in." The walkway across the water feature is made of slippery glass and there aren't any rails around the patio or along the outdoor hallway, and yes, we'd hesitate before getting drunk there, but oh boy is it worth the risk. The house has had two lives now--it was built in 1963 for a doctor and artist couple (the Sheats) and their five kids, who moved out a couple of years after completion. (They had wanted the pool area to have a "camping under the stars" feel, so Lautner stuck Old Fashioned glasses down into holes in the concrete ceiling.) In 1972, mysterious multi-millionaire James Goldstein bought the house (no one's sure how he made his fortune, but you might recognize as the hat-wearing fellow who sits courtside at Lakers and lots of other NBA games); in 1980, he started working with Lautner on a major renovation.

 

The Sheats-Goldstein's structure is almost all original, but materials, built-ins, motorized elements (skylights and walls), glazing, and more are new since the Sheats' time, according to info from the Lautner Foundation. Lautner combined the lower-level study, studio, and master bedroom into one large master divided by a concrete wall and furnished with concrete furniture (and an invisible sink). The master also has a built-in scale and windows that look into the pool (the Sheats had those put in so mom could watch the kids--see, it's totally safe).

Since Lautner's death in 1994, Goldstein has worked with Duncan Nicholson, who spent time in Lautner's office. You can see in the photos that Goldstein is now adding a party/office annex with a rooftop tennis court.

    How can you go wrong with a Lautner designed house yet slightly decadent house decor from the owner, spectacular views of the hills, cocktails, and a colorful installation by James Turrell! The main plus was the company with Robert in the lead and soooo much picture taking!! The house was perfect for photo ops! Thanks everyone!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
