1942 Neutra Ranch Style

DESCRIPTION

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.

Past this, the beautifully done kitchen features stainless steel counters, vaulted ceilings, skylights, a large center island, and sitting area also leading out. On the other end of the house, lies the grand master suite with similarly soaring ceilings, fireplace, 2 spa-like his/her baths, and triple glass door.

Scrape it or Save it?

DESCRIPTION

(This property is located directly next door to the home I just closed escrow on at 413 S. Bristol. I sold that one for the full price of $8,450,000). I personally don’t feel this property at 411 is necessarily a “tear-down”, as the facade has been updated since 1948 and there are certain elements of the home that have been re-done over time, but when I look at ALL factors considered, it’s an attractive property for potential developers, owner users looking to build new or work with the existing structure. The listing agent from Teles described it as follows: THIS HOME IS SURROUNDED BY LUSH GREENERY TO MAKE IT EXTREMELY PRIVATE. MOST OF THE DOWNSTAIRS ROOMS LEAD TO AN OUTDOOR SPACE. THE MASTER BEDROOM IS LOCATED ON THE MAIN LEVEL AND OVERLOOKS THE ENTERTAINMENT DECK. THE BREAKFAST AREA, FAMILY ROOM AND LIVING ROOM ALSO SURROUND THE ENTERTAINMENT DECK. BEYOND THE DECK IS A RECTANGULAR POOL WITH LANDSCAPING TO CREATE AN OASIS. UPSTAIRS ARE THREE BEDROOMS AND A FAMILY ROOM. This property listed at the beginning of September 2013 and sold in multiple offers $650,000 over asking price closing at $5,750,000.
