Hilton & Hyland.
DESCRIPTION: Frank Gehry's Schnabel House, 1989. Chosen by Living Architecture as one of the 20 Greatest American Houses of the 20th Century, Gehry's Schnabel House has been meticulously restored and renovated with the master architect's guidance and with the highest degree of craftsmanship and purpose. Melding modern and luxurious technological amenities with the celebrated architect's profound artistic vision, creating a masterpiece rarely matched in a residential property. This iconic architectural home is a "village" of sculptural forms encompassing spaces that are multi-dimensional and complex, representing a maturation of Gehry's architectural vocabulary at the time. The home presents a synthesis of craft, material, textures and ideas in an extraordinary environment. Light and form are in constant flux as the day and seasons change. The private and gated grounds have been designed by award-winning Nancy Goslee Power & Associates and include an olive orchard, mature trees, a 3,000 square foot reflecting pond off the master bedroom, an Olympic-length lap pool, dining terraces and striking views of the play of sun and starlight on the Getty Museum. "This is the design I had fantasized about for my own house," Gehry has said. This unique offering is truly one of the greatest architectural works of art.
