Won’t You Be My Neighbor Saturday – The Scott House in Tujunga, CA

By RetroRuth

Here is a treat for this Saturday! Pierre Koeing’s Scott House is for sale!


From the realtor’s website:

The Scott House :: Pierre Koenig, Architect. An early experiment in his Steel and Glass narrative, Pierre Koenig presents in The Scott House a new model for postwar suburban life. One of five projects predating his work for the Case Study program and virtually unaltered, the house looks strikingly modern 50 years later. Lifted from the street against the foothills of the Angeles National Forest, the house surveys an artistic enclave of mid-century post & beam homes in the rural community of Tujunga and sits on a half-acre horse property. Truly a "machine for living, " the home’s efficient floor plan reaches well beyond its modest square footage with nearly every room opening to the natural beauty of the foothills through massive sliding glass panels. This home presents a singular restoration opportunity to the buyer wishing to own an iconic piece of Southern California architecture.


Lovely, isn’t it?  This house is 1,429 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1.75 baths, and the asking price is $585,000.


I covet that George Nelson bench mightily.





Light and bright and very MCM, with some interesting room layouts. What do you guys think?

      I too would move in immediately, even though it is in LA, which I hate. This is an amazing house and the furnishings are perfection.

    “Rural community of Tujunga?” Hahahahahahahahaha! *wiping tears* Oh, that’s a good one. Tujunga is a neighborhood of Los Angeles. It isn’t as densely populated as other parts of the city but there is NO WAY it can be called “rural” except by a realtor.

    Pragmatically speaking: The steel and glass house is the kind of structure you want to have when the periodic brush fires whip through that area and I can’t help but wonder if he chose that fabrication because of the high fire risk of that neighborhood.
