Here’s a midcentury home with a unique place in Los Angeles history. Designed by influential modern architects Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman, it was built in 1963 for Harry and Patricia Roth. Harry Roth, a successful clothier, was Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s grandfather.
The sleek Beverly Crest residence was photographed by Julius Shulman and received a merit award from the American Institute of Architects in 1964. It was expanded and remodeled in 2006, but retains its original post and beam design style.
The 3,800-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, with walls of glass and concrete floors throughout. A long, double-height corridor connects the kitchen to the open living and dining area.
The house has been equipped with new appliances, cabinetry, and bathroom fixtures. Sliding glass doors provide easy indoor-outdoor access, and a pergola-shaded rooftop deck offers excellent views of the Century City skyline.
Sitting on a one-third-acre lot in the 90210 zip code, the home also comes with a pool, fire pit, and a bit of grassy lawn.
Asking price is $6.9 million.
Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the home was built for Harry and Julia Roth. It was constructed for Harry Roth and his second wife, Patricia.
