los angeles: adamson house

The Adamson House is a Malibu landmark, known for it's stunning location right on the beach (some serious property value) and it's use of Malibu tile. It's open to the public (although I was only able to see the outside on the day I visited). The house was designed by Stiles O. Clements in 1929 for Rhoda and Merritt Adamson, owners of one of the largest dairies at the time. Mrs. Adamson started the Malibu Potteries in 1926, which provided tiles to hundreds of buildings throughout Southern California. Click here to learn more about the history of the property.
