Events at Glen Lukens House

Set along a residential street in the historic West Adams neighborhood, this modern vacation home in Los Angeles is a testament to early 20th century architect Raphael Soriano's visionary design at the very start of the mid-century architectural movement.

Carved out of an adjacent lot of a fading turn-of-the century mansion, the home was a revolutionary standout in the neighborhood.

The home's single story, one level design and modest footprint was only slightly opened and expanded following restorations and includes flat, cantileverd rooflines and banks of windows on both sides with bright, airy interiors.       

The living area feeds into the dining area and kitchen, divided by the original fireplace, with all original built-ins.

There are three bedrooms and two baths, with access to the gardens and a magnificent turn-of the century greenhouse settled into the leafy private grounds. 

This is a rare piece of history for design lovers, with a fascinating past. 

 

ADITIONAL FEATURES 

Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, climate control, private parking.

 

AROUND 

The West Adams district of Los Angeles has a storied past in the history and development of LA, emerging as an important part of the city's founding. First settled at the turn of the century, the neighborhood was concentrated around the downtown district before LA began its sprawling creep to become a patchwork of disparate neighborhoods. 

Many of its lovely Victorian era homes have come and gone while the neighborhood underwent multiple changes over the last one hundred years, but the area is a great central jumping off point for exploring the best of LA. 

Depending on traffic of course, you are within a half hour to all of the action on the Sunset strip, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the west side for the best dining, shopping and nightlife. 

Thirty minutes east is the resurrected and thriving downtown district, and a half hour west is the coastal area beaches of Santa Monica and Venice, with Malibu and the Santa Monica mountains for the best of outdoor fun and nature.
