Buy the House the Dead Poets Society Built For $15M Flat

New, 3 comments

Newly on the market in the Brentwood area of L.A.: this 9,000-square-foot house, owned by screenwriter Tom Schulman. Schulman purchased the 1.35-acre property in 1989, the year the Dead Poets Society was released, and commissioned California architect Steven Ehrlrich—who trademarked the expression "multicultural modernism" to describe his firm's philosophy—for this modernist five-bedroom, made of concrete, glass, steel, and wood. The result, according to the brokerbabble, is an "adept interpretation of California modernist style" and "a comprehensive blending of the sensibilities of Schindler and Neutra, with delicate Japanese influences." Standouts here include a driveway lined with bamboo, an entry bridge ("the balance of striking geometric angles with the soft landing of a water"), shoji screen-inspired interior woodwork, and a double-height living room. Below, a look:
