The “Laing House,” built for Caltech professor Graham Laing,  appeared in the LA County Museum of Art’s Guide to Architecture in Southern California, and the November 1935 issue of California Arts & Architecture. The article (scanned below ) was titled “A Frank Lloyd Wright House With a Hat On”…

If you’re going to be influenced by someone, it might as well be Frank Lloyd Wright. Interestingly, Harris was trained as an architect by another great modernist, Richard Neutra.

The house has been updated over the years, but a period feel remains. Located in Pasadena’s hilly, historic Poppy Peak area of the San Rafael Hills, it features 150 feet of built-in bookshelves and has French doors, hardwood floors, dining terraces and mountain views. This is a chance to own a wonderful slice of modern architectural history. For a private tour, contact Tracy Do Real Estate.
