We first posted about the residence back in July 2009, when it was back on the market with a substantial price drop to $1.495 from its starting point of $4.995 in September of 2008. It came back again at the start of 2012 for $1.495.

The incredible 2,426-square-foot home was revolutionary in 1925 and continues to be forward-looking to this day. Constructed almost entirely of center-cut Redwood and poured-in-place concrete, this masterpiece has been meticulously restored to museum quality.

The timeless design is a formal Modernist composition, yet simultaneously comfortable and embracing, with interlocking 3-dimensional volumes and dramatic proportions. Clever corner window conditions bathe the interior with light.

Richard Neutra designed the garden with a large flat terrace, unusual for a quiet hillside site.
