After a breezy less-than-two-months on the market, Devo member Gerald Casale just sold his landmarked Richard Neutra home in the Hollywood Hills for $3.4M, slightly below the asking price of $3.5M. Although the Kun House from 1936 is not as beloved by fans as later residences by the modernist architect, Neutra once called the cruise ship-like home his favorite of the period. The international style three-bedroom house with wraparound and roof decks also might be the world's only home to be meticulously restored by a 1980s rockstar. Casale bought the 1,700-square-foot pad for $2M in 2007, and then spent seven years replacing any elements added after the 1930s, so now the home comes with period cabinetry, fixtures, windows, and doors.
