This historic single-family home is now listed for $15 million.

The now five-bedroom home has glass doors that welcome natural light into the rooms. The luxurious property is set on two lots which means lots of space and privacy.

The awarded design from Neutra has won contests, becoming the first modern home to win the House Beautiful this kind of contests. Therefore, the property has been designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No.647.

The home has been renovated twice since it was first built. Also, Forster did some updates while living in the house, adding geothermal generators for energy consumption, a studio/guesthouse, a hot yoga room and a sauna.

The luxurious house features an elegant and modern living room that includes a cozy yet, beautiful fireplace, an oval-shaped dining room, and a master suite that has its own private balcony plus, private office space.

Owning this property is a huge deal since it has been featured in various magazines and in the “Laurel Canyon” movie in 2003.

Forster purchased the property back in 2009 for $4.7 million and spent $4 million on additions. Learn more about the listing here!
