John Lautner’s Elrod House is literally one of THE most architecturally significant homes in all the world. This home was commissioned by designer Arthur Elrod in 1968 and has been featured in numerous books, magazines and museum exhibitions.

Organic shapes, monumental construction and world class design create an extraordinary experience of space that Lautner himself described as “timeless” architecture.

There is even a pool on the bottom floor! Prepare to get jealous.
