Update: President of Beats by Dre Buys Lautner's Silvertop

Ever since word got out that L.A.'s Silvertop Residence, a storied estate by SoCal midcentury modernist John Lautner, has sold over ask, Curbed LA has been knee-deep in public records and tipster communiques hoping to find out who exactly is the lucky bastard buyer. Turns out it's Luke Wood, president of Beats by Dre and "long-time Silver Lake resident, who intends to restore the house to the height of Lautner's vision," Curbed LA has found out. Silvertop went into escrow less than three weeks after listing, and rumor is it was a battle of the wealthy and architecturally-inclined—that is, competition for the place, which was first commissioned in 1956 for midcentury inventor Kenneth Reiner, was cutthroat.

Curbed LA has the scoop. >>
