3 Units – 2BR/1BA, 1BR/1BA, Studio
SOLD – $1,154,500

I am very excited to present my newest listing, a modernist triplex in the heart of Beachwood Canyon, with units by Richard Neutra and Paul Hoag. This is the first time this one of a kind property has been on the market.

In total there’s 2,207 square feet of interior space and three separate units: a 2-bedroom, 1-bath Spanish lower-level unit, which is currently rented out for $1,850; a 1-bedroom, 1-bath upper level unit, designed by Neutra, with a private terrace and additional studio space above the garage, which is currently rented for $1,450; and a freestanding Paul Hoag Studio with its own private yard and 2-car garage, which is vacant.

The Neutra unit is one of the architect’s first works in Los Angeles. He was hired in 1934 by the Rajagopal family, renowned educators and architectural socialites, to expand their existing two-bedroom, one-bath Spanish home to accommodate friends and family. Neutra built the upper unit, which showcases an early example of his distinct style. Later, Paul Hoag was commissioned to build an additional studio apartment on the property.
