Designed by the renowned architect in 1950, the Foster House has never been listed—until now.

Located in the lovely Los Angeles neighborhood of Sherman Oaks, this striking, curvilinear midcentury is the brainchild of renowned architect John Lautner.

Designed in 1950 for a teacher named Foster, this unique two-bedroom midcentury known as the Foster House was one of the architect's earliest residential commissions.
