Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

621 Wrede Way in West Covina


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.┬áNeutra’s modular grid, spider leg detailing, and asymmetric compositions combine to create a harmony of balance, transparency, and lightness.

Similar in richness to that of his Bel Air and Beverly Hills projects from the same period, Neutra’s signature Texas Shellstone entrance facade, fireplaces and built-in planters are incorporated.

The residence, patios, yard and pool all face sweeping views of the San Gabriel Mountains, with Mt. Baldy at its center.

Set atop a knoll on 3.45 private and park like acres, surrounded by towering eucalyptus, pine, and oak trees.

A more than 2-year restoration led by Eric Lamers has just been completed. There are updated systems, recreating missing elements, and rehabilitating original details, including cork tile, original terrazzo flooring, birch paneling and built-ins, original fixtures, stainless steel firewood boxes, and more.

This stunning home is located in an idyllic setting just 22 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

Neutra’s inspired design defines the ideal California lifestyle.
