New to the market, the J.M. Roberts Residence, designed by Richard Neutra in 1955. While the Roberts original request was for a more conventional ranch style home, Neutra brought them around to his purely modernist aesthetic. Neutra’s modular grid, spider leg detailing, and asymmetric compositions combine to create a harmony of balance, transparency, and lightness. Similar … Continued
The How House, designed by Rudolf Schindler in 1925, is arguably one of the architect’s most significant and influential works. 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 … Continued
Is it already almost 2016!? Hard to believe but it is time again for us to decide which was the best home of 2015. This was a great year for architectural listings in Los Angeles and it was hard to narrow the picks to just these 10 homes. I’ve blogged about so many great houses this year, but the following are my favorites.
Built in 1949 by architect Robert E. Bond, this newly listed mid-century is located in the Poppy Peak Historic District of Pasadena. Along with Bond, homes in this area were designed by notable architects including Richard Neutra; Harwell Hamilton Harris; and Buff, Straub and Hensman.
Designed by Richard Nuetra and built in 1951, the Goldman Residence has been painstakingly restored using the finest materials while keeping Neutra’s original vision. Situated on three-quarters of an acre in the coveted Royal Oaks neighborhood in Encino, this mid-century home is surrounded by lush lawns and mature landscaping.
Built in 1933 by renowned architect Jock Peters for Academy Award winner Alfred Gilks, this beautiful Los Feliz oasis is on the market for the first time in over 60 years!
I am very excited to announce my newest listing: The Parr-Schoenfeld Residence, c 1954. Designed by architect Lucille Raport, disciple of Richard Neutra, revered for her Post-War feminism in a male dominated field in the 1950s.
A short drive into the hills, just north of Hollywood Boulevard, rises Richard Nuetra’s Kun Residence, 1936. Perched over a hill in prime West Hollywood, this home has exceptional views from the city to the ocean. Modernist architectural master Richard Neutra called this Hollywood Hills home his favorite of the period.
Update 12/22: And the winner is….Silvertop! Not a big surprise that one of the best houses in L.A. won. The voting wasn’t even that close as the landmark Lautner property captured a wopping 37% of the votes. Tied for second place was the Wirin House and 7529 Mulholland Dr with 11% each. The full results … Continued
This is the first offering of the Kambara Residence, built in 1960, designed by Richard Neutra, Architect. Contrary to appearance, this unique living environment, sheltered within a park-like landscape, was not a planned development. The Kambara residence shares an interesting, combined paved and planted entranceway with its neighbor, another Colony house, the O’Hara. Mature foliage separates the homes and offers privacy for both.
