Nicknamed the Crystal House for its faceted front window, this architectural gem in Laurel Canyon offers an experiment in angled existence.
The unique home, built in 1957, opens to a dramatic living room defined by its geometric forms and unusual windows. In other areas, period details are evidenced in the exposed beams, tongue-and-groove ceilings and the original kitchen.
