1942 Neutra Ranch Style

2013 / sold


Absolutely, and by far, the BEST Ranch Style I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to pull of that style in these Modern times but this one is the one! Designed by world-renowned modernist architect Richard Neutra, this home was originally built in 1942 for NBC radio producer John Nesbitt. Restored & renovated by acclaimed designer Barbara Barry & Architect David Serrurier, a master bedroom was added to the main structure & two bedrooms were added to the ancillary structure, adding space and function while honoring Neutra’s vision and style. Designed with total integrity channeling Neutra’s sensibilities of understatement and humble materials, a harmony of light, colors and textures combine to create a tranquil indoor-outdoor living space with the main house opening to mature garden. The grounds are an exotic paradise w/ tropical plants & lush gardens to enhance the seven water features that exist on the property, creating an oasis while still centrally located to local shops, restaurants and community. This is truly a spectacular home where light & air celebrate Southern California living. This property came on the market in January of 2013 for $8,000,000, then was reduced 5 weeks later $7,000,000, then it sat for 4 months at that price before going into escrow. The deal fell apart and it came back on the market with a $500,000 reduction to $6,500,000 in June. Another month at that price then went into escrow in July and finally closed escrow a couple of days ago at an even $6,400,000.
