Immerse yourself in a rare opportunity to dwell within an equally iconic architectural wonder of an extraordinary mid-century modern Case Study House #26. Within its 2000-sq ft chic interior, guests will be enveloped in a gem of history, as only a few remaining Case Study houses exist. Built in 1962, it is a true classic original of the California Case Study Program and a proud member of the Iconic Houses Organization. Based on a design by Beverley David Thorne, its structure resembles a shoe box comprised of eight identical divided sections and is a bold cantilevered steel-framed structure with a flat roof; while its interior showcases a dramatic and ultimate modernist indoor-outdoor living experience. The House has been well-maintained and completely updated with impeccable modern-living comforts. Perched upon a hill with magnificent panoramic views, this one-level residence offers an amazing platform of living, allowing natural light in from every angle with its floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall picture windows and doorways. Enjoy sunrises and sunsets from upon its massive full back deck, making it a perfect spot to relax, read, write, paint, dine or simply toast each day upon with your favorite glass of wine. Enter into its elegant-mod open-space, and unwind your troubles away in the Living Room near the wood-burning fireplace and kick back on the comfortable white sectional L-shaped sofa. Gather to enjoy meals at any of the inviting and delightful dining areas -choose from the one that flows from the living area, or the one near the kitchen, or dine al fresco out on the deck with its fantastic views. Cook up some delicious healthy fare from the farmers market or local farm-to-table suppliers in the remarkable sleek-white fully-equipped Chef Kitchen. Slumber in either of its three bedrooms, each uniquely decorated in the same mid-century modern theme - the Master Bedroom offers access to the outside deck and provides a Queen bed with private spacious bath; while the other two Guestrooms offer Queen Beds and share a spacious bath, but also have access to the deck.

Getaway to this one-of-a-kind architectural wonders, and be in awe of it all from the moment you arrive! Guests also have the privilege of access to the Case Study House extensive library on modern design and architecture, along with the history of the house.
