Richard Neutra: The Troxell HouseAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Richard Neutra was one of the defining architects of the last century, especially in Los Angeles, and one of his iconic houses came on the market last week in Pacific Palisades.
The basics: four bedrooms, two baths, one half-bath with a pool on about an acre in Pacific Palisades and asking $4,450,000.
Not so basic: a beautifully refurbished post-and-beam house by Richard Neutra from 1956 with a staggering view down the coast to Palos Verde.
It’s had a lot of work done, according to Curbed LA, but it’s been reconstructed extensively- and expertly- while making it look like nothing’s been done at all. Renovations were done in 2005 with a new pool, an expanded master suite, and new systems. Check out the tour here. Neutra had planned a pool but it was never built, and his signature details- long stretches of book cases, built-ins, and banquettes, huge expanses of glass- have been retained or re-invented.
