Lorna Jane Founders List a Fab $20M Home with a Richard Neutra Case Study Guesthouse
Rarely does an iconic piece of architecture come as the side dish on a larger property. But that is exactly how Richard Neutra’s Case Study House #20, also known as the Bailey House, has appeared on the market. It’s still totally one-of-a-kind, but now serves as the guesthouse of a sprawling eco-friendly mansion in the Pacific Palisades. Asking $20 million, the entire spread is a private sanctuary of palm trees and architectural pedigree.
Current owners Lorna Jane Clarkson and Bill Clarkson, co-founders of activewear brand Lorna Jane, purchased the property from The Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon, who constructed the main residence in 2010 with solar and toxin-free construction technology. An effortless and easy answer to the sharp, clean lines and rich earth tones of Bailey House, the main house is all white archways and effortless indoor-outdoor floor. That is not to say that the main house does not match the style of Neutra’s work; the two structures exist as a sort of yin and yang, at once distinct and complementary.
Lorna put her design eye to work, collaborating with Twofold LA’s Jenn Pablo and Olivia Korenberg to create the current interiors for both structures. A buyer can snag the estate fully furnished, with some personal pieces off-limits, of course.
In total, the property counts seven bedrooms and seven full bathrooms, with two of each falling within the floorplan of the Bailey House. Featuring a saltwater pool, koi pond, and rolling lawns, the coastal compound is listed with Jacqueline Chernov and Kristin Alexander of Compass.
