Celebrated architect Harry Gesner's "triangle house" is up for sale for $3.999 million. The property is in Tarzana, California, and was built in the year 1960 but the house is not dated in any way, shape, or form. Spread across 1.3 acres of land down a long driveway, the sprawling house boasts of 5,278-square-foot area size. The four bedrooms and four baths "triangle house" is one of Gesner's most famous works.
The indoor and outdoor areas are separated by full-length glass walls. The sunken living room has an overlooking kitchen with a large island and has space for both, prepping and eating.
The house also has a wine cellar and the indoor dining room has glass walls overlooking the flora on the property. This gives one the impression of being outdoors.
The concrete and glass property also boasts of a guesthouse that is separated from the main house and can be accessed across a terrace. The guest unit is a replica of the main house and can also double up as an office.
Overlooking the den is an expensive and large patio with a sunken rectangular firepit with ample sitting space that could be perfect for entertaining guests.
The house also comes with a large media room, a pool, sauna, and expansive outdoor terraces that are perfect for entertaining a sizeable group of guests.
The entry gate of the house is very modern, just like the rest of the house which also comes with a futuristic garage.
It is said that Gesner designed all his houses keeping in mind the environment of its location. He would design considering all the important facts like how the home would sit on its location, the views (which he feels creates perspective to one's life), and the home's relationship to the movement of nature's important elements aka wind and sun.
Gesner is a World War II hero and a self-taught architect. He sure didn't dedicate years learning architecture the traditional way but today the 95-year-old is counted as one of America's most celebrated architects. He has been designing houses since 1945 and his life and work are celebrated in the book 'Houses of the Sundown Sea' which was published in 2012.
