This two-story post-and-beam in the Hollywood Hills was built in 1949 for Millard Kaufman, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter and co-creator of the cartoon character Mr. Magoo, and his wife Lorraine. Three top modernists – Richard Neutra, Alexander Ban and Josef Van Der Kar – played a role in the design and expansion of the house. The site was planned by the renowned landscape architect Garrett Eckbo.
