A single man home for sale


Tom Ford’s award-winning movie A Single Man was aesthetically stunning. I was in awe with the decor, light, set dressing, design; everything. It helped that two of the most beautiful people in the world starred in it. I really loved Julianne Moore’s house, but was also quite partial to Colin Firth’s glass mid Century gem of a home.

The home, designed by renowned architect John Lautner, was built in 1949. It’s currently on the market for $1,495,000. The house has been recently restored to its original natural redwood and glass beauty. A classic that Frank Gehry and Frank Escher both count among their absolute favorite homes. It boasts so many glass walls it feels transparent at times.
