Modernist architect Richard Neutra once called this 1936 house, built in the international style for the printer of the L.A. Examiner, his favorite of the period. Looking something like a modernist yacht, the three-bedroom, 1,700-square-foot spread with several wraparound balconies is emblematic of the architect's prewar style. However, it's also perhaps the only home in town that has been painstakingly restored by a 1980s rockstar. After buying it in 2007, Devo member Gerald Casale spent seven years returning it to its original 1930s state, with period fixtures, cabinetry, nickel-and-chrome detailing between the public and private spaces, and a rare type of glass for the kitchen and bathrooms. The landmarked home was just listed for $3.5M.
