Historic Case Study House #18 For Sale as a Possible Teardown

Rodney Walker is one of the lesser-known architects who participated in Arts & Architecture's groundbreaking Case Study House program, which introduced Mid-Century Modern to the masses, but over his career he created scads of strikingly lovely houses around Southern California. One of those is his Case Study House #18, aka the West House, which sits on a bluff in Pacific Palisades and, along with several other Case Study Houses, on the National Register of Historic Places. But that doesn't mean it can't be demolished. The 1948 house has just come up for sale and the listing gently hints that a new owner might want to tear it down.
