Piece of 1930s Los Angeles Design History on Sale for $1.7M

Jock Peters isn't exactly a household name, but there was a time when he sat on panels about architecture with his Modernist contemporaries Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra. Though Peters was a working architect, he first made a name for himself doing the stunning interiors of the first three floors of the fabulous Bullock's Wilshire. From there, he went on to design a small number of houses, one of which is a Los Feliz property originally built in 1933 for cinematographer Alfred Gilks, who worked on both silents and talkies, and won an Oscar for An American in Paris. It's now for sale for the first time in 60 years, attests the listing.
