"You will never see anything like this!" trumpets the copy for the new-to-market Entenza House, aka Case Study No. 9. Which is kinda weird, because we seem to recall seeing something exactly like this on the market not too long ago. Or, to be more accurate, this very same house. Designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen in 1949, the famous steel-frame structure--now converted into a guesthouse for a 9,500 square foot contemporary designed by Barry Berkus--last changed hands in June 2010 for $10 million. The one-acre property, located in the Pacific Palisades near Case Studies No. 8 (the Eames House), No. 18 (by Rodney Walker), and No. 20 (Richard Neutra's Bailey House), was put back up for sale yesterday, with a beefed up price tag of $15.95 million. Per the listing, its features include an art gallery, two offices, a library, two kitchens, nine bathrooms, "two garages for four cars, plus off street for another 20+," a pool, and wine cellar. Virtual tour can be found here.
