2 Beds/2.5 Baths on 1,719sqft on a total lot size of 0.35 acres built in 1981 in Calabasas by Frank Gehry which known as the Benson Home. This home is being listed on the market for the first time by the Benson's for $895,000.

According to the listing:
The Benson House, 1981 :: Frank Gehry, Architect. Applying his deconstructivist "village" concept to a sloped view site in Calabasas, Gehry expresses the family home as a discrete collection of volumes, one containing the living quarters, another the sleeping quarters, and an un-built carport. A palette of materials such as asphalt roofing used for exterior sheathing, plywood both painted and unfinished, concrete floors, and unfinished exposed rafters provide striking contrasts and the suggestion of a house as yet unfinished. Two bedrooms, a loft work space, and two bathrooms are separated from the open, voluminous living space with a third bathroom and laundry by exterior corridors and connected by wood bridges. Large windows capture stunning views of the Valley below. This landmarked home is being offered for the first time by the Benson Family. Calabasas Historical Landmark No. 2.
