Sycamore Road, USA

Pierre Koenig was one of the most iconic architects of the mid-century modern movement, which focused on functional designs, harmony with nature, geometric lines, and the use of steel and glass. Koenig’s final project, a gorgeous geometric home in Santa Monica known as the Schwartz House, has been listed for sale at $4.55 million.

More like a work of art than a typical house, the rare historic home sits atop four structural steel columns, designed to minimize the home’s ecological impact and promote a harmonious relationship with nature.

The residence’s rotated design is focused on southern exposure and capturing the sea breezes to conserve energy but also offers an attention-getting look. Stark lines, black-steel framing, galvanized wall panels, and floor-to-ceiling glass provide the classic mid-century modern aesthetic for which Koenig is so famous.

The 2,380-square-foot home’s interiors are warm and inviting, offering a breezy, beautiful style. Blonde hardwoods and white walls complement the walls of glass and open floor plan that connects the spacious kitchen, dining, and living spaces.

Four bedrooms, three baths, and a guest suite with its own entrance offer plenty of room for family, or space for a home office or gym. A spiral staircase with yellow metal steps connects the three stories in an iconic modern style. A recent renovation updated the property with a new roof, refinished floors, and all new appliances while maintaining the look and spirit of the original home.

A covered patio beneath the steel columns offers shade for lounging, while mature trees ring the yard. With only two owners since its original commission, the home has been carefully maintained. With its pedigree and condition, the Schwartz House is a good candidate for registration as a historic landmark.

The home is located in a fantastic part of Santa Monica, only half a mile from top-rated Ginger Rogers Beach and Rustic Canyon Park. Santa Monica’s bustling downtown, plus numerous great beaches along the Pacific Coast, are only a short drive away.
