I am very excited to announce my newest listing: The Parr-Schoenfeld Residence, c 1954. Designed by architect Lucille Raport, disciple of Richard Neutra, and revered for her Post-War feminism in a male-dominated field in the 1950s.

Featured on American Women in Architecture & Design Founders Day Tour, this private home embodies the spirit of Raport’s designs. Listed for the first time in over 20 years.

Reminiscent of Richard Neutra this is the home for a modernist buyer. Walls of glass, indoor/outdoor flow, pool, views, privacy and a convertible den showcase the hallmarks of 50s design.
