CurbedLA points to a noteworthy local residential property fresh to the market. It's the Shulman house, longtime home of the late Julius Shulman, the legendary photographer whose images of mid-century modern design elevated the movement and made him and the buildings iconic.

Designed by Los Angeles architect Raphael S. Soriano, 7875 Woodrow Wilson Drive was built in 1950, and sits on a parcel described as "Very Private/Secluded Heavily Wooded Flag Lot With Incredible Views," via a Redfin listing. The home is one of the few remaining of Soriano's still standing today. [View a Flickr set of photos of the home & property here]

The three-bed, three-bath home sits above Sunset in the western section of the Hollywood Hills, and is listed at $2.495 million. The home "was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1987." Footage of Shulman at work and at leisure in his home is included in the wonderful recent documentary film Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman. Shulman died in July at age 98.
