In Laurel Canyon, Atomic Age modern with wild history lists for $4.5M

By Pauline O’Connor

You can find a property with an interesting history on the market in Los Angeles pretty much any day of the week, but very few are as fascinating as that of Laurel Canyon’s Wohlstetter House.

The International Modern-style home was designed by architect Josef Van der Kar in 1953. The son of Dutch immigrants, Van der Kar was a card-carrying Communist whose political activism made him a target of the House Un-American Activities Committee. The architect’s closest friends included fellow “radical” architect Gregory Ain and union organizer Henry Shire.

But surprisingly, Van der Kar’s inner circle also included neoconservative heroes Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter, a husband-wife team of foreign policy and nuclear arms strategists. A national security advisor to every president from Eisenhower to Reagan, Albert Wohlstetter was one of the inspirations for Stanley Kubrick’s nutty warmonger Dr. Strangelove.

Median home price near Dodger Stadium: $640K

By Elijah Chiland

Baseball season is here and, with interest rates on the rise, perhaps it’s also time for a bit of home shopping. That may well be the idea behind a new report from Estately analyzing home prices around the nation’s 29 Major League Baseball stadiums.

Of those ballparks, Dodger Stadium has the fourth-highest sale prices within two miles of the field (though perhaps the relatively inexpensive ticket prices help to make up for that, if you’re the type of person who bases your homebuying decisions on proximity to live baseball).

According to the report, the median sale price near the stadium is $640,000. That’s just a little less than the $671,083 that homes near Citi Field (home of the New York Mets) command, but well under the prices around Boston’s Fenway Park and San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
