One of Los Angeles’s few remaining Case Study houses is looking for a new owner.

Designed by Rodney Walker, Case Study House No. 18 (aka West House), was built in 1948 as part of the Case Study program, sponsored by Arts & Architecture. The influential series transformed modern architecture and helped make Los Angeles into an important center of postwar homebuilding and midcentury design style.

This particular residence is perched on a hillside in Pacific Palisades, right next door to several other homes designed for the program, including the Eames House. Last sold in 2015 for $6.5 million, it retains original features, including tile floors, walls of glass, and a large brick fireplace that divides the living room from a dining area.

The 1,701-square-foot house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Other features include beamed ceilings, built-in shelving, and sliding doors leading out to a grassy yard with brick patios and views of Will Rogers State Beach.

The home sits on a roughly half-acre lot with room for new development. Actually, if one luxurious residence isn’t enough for you, the property is being listed with plans included for a second structure conceived by design firm Olson Kundig.

Naturally, none of this comes cheap. Asking price is $10 million.
