John Lautner Home and Garden Tour: 10/24/2013
The Sheats Goldstein residence was built in 1963 by Architect John Lautner, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. Lautner was responsible for many cutting edge and futuristic residences built in the 1960s.
Joining us on the tour is Landscape Architect Eric Nagelmann, designer of the new Lotusland cactus garden, who worked for more than 25 years on the landscaping. Eric has offered Lotusland members a once in-a-lifetime opportunity to tour the residence and grounds.
Originally built by Helen and Paul Sheats and now owned by James Goldstein, a multimillionaire "NBA superfan," who is also known for his flair for things stylish and fashionable. James Goldstein bought the residence in the 1970s and hired Lautner to return and make improvements to the previously neglected house. Introducing technology that was not available 30 years ago, Goldstein and Duncan Nicholson, who took over the project after Lautner's death in 1994, continue to push the envelope with upgrades and changes that make this home a sought after location for parties, photo shoots and movie locations.
Transportation by motor coach from Lotusland to Beverly Hills with lunch are included in this memorable outing.
$150 per person / members - $175 member's guests.
