Richard Neutra's 1961 Linn Residence Lists For $2.795M

New, 6 comments

New to market in Los Angeles is the stilted, sharp-edged Linn Residence built in 1961 and designed by local midcentury modern hero—and recent Simpsons riffRichard Neutra. Plunked on the hillsides of L.A. and overlooking the San Fernando Valley, Linn Residence, asking $2.795M, was Neutra's attempt to build a home "on axis with the hillside's contours," and so the living space cantilevers above a carport, boosting the main house in line with the hillside and providing the house some spectacularly sweeping valley views. Inside is all the usual Neutra fare: an airy living room, a clunky brick fireplace, wonderfully humongous windows, and a collapsible wall. Without furnishings, the listing photos do not quite have the dazzle of, say, Neutra's 1949 Hees House or his 1963 Coveney House, both of which recently hit the market, but that Neutra magic—and by that we mean the lovingly restored kitchen—is all still there. Go on, have a look.
