Remember porn king/loan shark/antagonist Jackie Treehorn from The Big Lebowski? If you do, you’ll probably recall his decadent home that the Dude winds up in. Now we’re getting a better look at it, and the fascinating history behind it.

With architect John Lautner calling the shots, the Sheats Goldstein Residence was built in 1963. It’s situated high in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Beverly Crest, and even though it’s more than 50 years old, it’s still ahead of its time in many ways. Several of the rooms are connected only via outdoor covered walkways, there are motorized sliding glass windows between the terrace and living room, and 750 tiny skylights – somehow made with actual drinking glasses – fill the living room’s vaulted ceiling. The hot tub overlooks Los Angeles, and the house is so magnificent, it’s been used for videos and photo shoots with celebs like Snoop Dogg and Daft Punk.
