    Please do more features like this. There is a story and history that is relatable and a very cool unconventional living space. The huge gigantic mansions in LA have very little charm or relateability for most people. All style no substance. IMO

    Just to add to the history of this house, my father Robert Goldschmitt operated Design Drafting Service in Huntington Beach in the 1970’s. His office was on Warner Blvd. one day about 1977 a client came in and asked him design a house for the water tower. He told me that he thought the guy was nuts, but he did completely design a house for the water tower. I’m not sure if that design was used, but I remember seeing my father draw up the blue prints. Unfortunately my father passed away in 2009 and he never kept copies of his work. I certainly wish I had those original drawings. It’s great to see this landmark in all its glory.
