Case Study House No. 21 in Laurel Canyon returns asking $3.6M

Also known as the Bailey House, the steel and glass residence in Laurel Canyon was designed by Pierre Koenig

The Bailey House, one of the approximately 20 surviving Los Angeles residences from Arts & Architecture magazine’s Case Study House program is once again up for grabs.

Designated CSH No. 21, the Hollywood Hills home was built between 1956 and ’58 by Pierre Koenig for psychologist Walter Bailey and his wife Mary, whom Arts & Architecture described as a “contemporary-minded” couple with no children and an informal lifestyle.

Koenig, architect of the Case Study Program’s most famous property, the Stahl House, constructed the boxy two-bedroom, two-bath home largely out of glass and pre-fabricated steel, and surrounded it with shallow reflective pools.

Listed on the local and national historic registers, the Bailey House was last purchased (per public records) for $3.185 million in 2006 by P.J. Park, founder of the Seoul-based art gallery and consultancy Seomi International, who used it as a by-appointment gallery to showcase contemporary Korean design.

The 1,280-square-foot home popped up for sale two years ago with an overly ambitious asking price of $4.5 million, before being withdrawn. It’s now back and aiming for a more realistic $3.6 million.
