Hummina-hummina! It's already pretty unusual to see a house by Case Study architects Edward Killingsworth and Jules Brady pop up on the market, but this delectable specimen, located in Long Beach's Virginia Country Club neighborhood, is especially noteworthy, as it was built in 1970 as Brady's own personal residence. Like the firm's Frank House, which Julius Shulman called "the most successful of all the Case Study houses," the Brady is distinguished by its Alice-in-Wonderlandishly tall front doors that open into a two-story atrium, its double-height ceilings, and large expanses of glass. Per the description, the 3,154-square-foot residence also features two bedrooms, four baths, two fireplaces, nine skylights, original walnut cabinetry (including a built-in wetbar), a "steel staircase with sculptural walnut railing," and a two-car garage. Last sold for $810,000 in 2003, it's just been listed with an asking price of $998,000.
