Located at 3778 Hampstead Road in La Canada Flintridge, architect John Lautner's Gantvoort Residence came on the market about three months ago listed at $2.2 million. And now it's undergone a meaty hack, dropping to $1.791 million. Here's the listing, but this old listing is much better because it's not in all caps (why must you scream, agents) and damn poetic. Excerpt: "Here is shelter, light, and warmth." Here is your price drop.
"As one drives down the curving private drive into the glen, only the vaulted metal roof hints of the drama of the architecture?all is hidden. Embarking on the parking plaza one searches for entry, it must be down that long narrow path along the front of the structure. There is a sense of mystery as one proceeds, but upon entering all is revealed. Here is shelter, light, and warmth. Wood trim softens and integrates the exposed steel trusses supporting the ceiling. Inclined glass walls look out to the natural pool and gardens. Living at one within nature is the gift. Includes: Open plan living area, 3 bedrooms, two baths, and original pool on nearly an acre site. "
