Sheats-Goldstein House in Los Angeles

Everyone knows the Sheats-Goldstein House. People either first saw it in The Big Lebowski, or they learned about it while looking at examples of Frank Lloyd Wright-style buildings. Yet still, it’s hard not to stop and gawk at the home after coming across it again.

Located in the hills above Los Angeles, this house was built in the early 1960s features all the hallmarks of post-war optimism and stylishness. The original owners sold the home after a decade of living in it to the eccentric millionaire James Goldstein. After moving in, Goldstein commissioned the original architect, John Lautner, to make additions and improvements. Lautner isn’t the only notable person to make additions and changes to the property, though. Light artist James Turrell (a MacArthur Genius fellow known by most for being inspiration to Drake’s Hotline Bling video) built a piece named Above Horizon below the home, too. Goldstein also bought an adjacent property, tore it down, and installed a private party house with a tennis court and office. In a city of iconic homes, this one may be one of the most striking. At some point in the future, the home is slated to be donated to the Los Angeles County Museum Of Art.
