Updated Weds., May 24, 2017 at 10:46 a.m.: The longtime personal estate of the late Modernist architect Pierre Koenig and his wife, Gloria, is on the market for the first time in 32 years.

The Brentwood home, which was designed by Koenig himself, has an asking price of $3.8 million.

The nearly 3,000-square-foot property has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a media room.  Koenig’s onsite studio opens onto a courtyard with a fountain, Curbed reported.

The Dorothy Street home is historically archived as “Koenig House #2” by the Los Angeles Conservancy, according to the conservancy. Koenig designed its steel framing system to be easily assembled on site. As such, it took workers only one day to build it.

Koenig is famous for the Stahl House or Case Study House No. 22 on Woods Drive as well as Case Study House No. 21 on Wonderland Park Avenue.

He lived in the Brentwood home until his death in 2004. His stepchildren, Barry and Thomas Kaufman, spent nearly three years restoring the residence, according to listing agent Matthew Altman of Douglas Elliman, who shared the listing with his brother Josh Altman. [Curbed] — Subrina Hudson
