Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House #21 (Bailey House) Goes on the Market
Occasionally, when a brand new and particularly unique house is built, stunning promotional pictures are taken so it can be put on the market and eventually sold. These photos show you every detail of the home and highlight the best features of each room. We find market photos especially impressive when they portray stunning open concepts in sunny areas, tempting us to save for our dream home or inspiring us for our next renovation. That’s precisely the case with a brand new home, Case Study House #21, which has been fondly nicknamed Bailey House!
Bailey House is a private residential architectural and interior design work that was originally conceptualized and built by Pierre Koenig, and it’s finally on the market! Nestled right into the iconic Hollywood Hills, this property is located in a gorgeous hillside neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, USA. This afford the home a stellar climate and views that are nothing short of breathtaking.
Immediately upon approaching the home, its unique aesthetic and construction are evident. The solid boarded walls you encounter around the outside provide some privacy, but they’re some of the only solid outer walls you’ll find in the whole place. Throughout the rest, crystal clear glass walls build an almost completely open concept area, letting cooling breezes, sunshine, and fresh air roam the entire home at will. Because of the location, weather is rarely an issue and when it is, sliding doors protect you from the elements.
Inside the rooms you’ll find furnishings and decor that are contemporary in a borderline vintage chic way. Shapes and solid colours hearken back to an almost 70s vibe, but with a crisp modern twist. Each room fills with pleasant sunlight for part of the day but features shades that will provide comfortable shade when necessary.
Outside the house and around the property, leading from room to room, you’ll find carefully paved brick pathways that invite the surrounding great outdoors right in. Some pathways are flanked by shallow pools, giving you a modern take on a medieval moat near the entrance. The entire home is truly a dream house, particularly for those who love Hollywood living and LA weather.
The home is priced at $4.5 million.
