Neutra Stilt Home Hits the Market in Sherman Oaks for $2M

A Richard Neutra-designed dwelling in Sherman Oaks is new to the Los Angeles open market this winter. For buyers enamored of the thoroughgoing and historic atmosphere of a genuine West Coast modern, it represents a rare opportunity.

The 1,800 sq. ft. residence popped up for sale with an asking price of $1,999,999. The house contains two bedrooms and two baths across its 1,800 sq. ft. of interior living area, and shows recent renovation that aligns nicely with the period midcentury design elements original to it.

The act of entering the home is somewhat remarkable; as a prologue to the interiors, a long, gated vestibule with moving water on the outside margin and a hardwood pergola above makes for a romantically soothing preliminary. A steel-framed glass entryway is the formal introduction to the shared living area, which blossoms after a second lengthy hall.

This is all introduction to arrival in the glass-heavy living room, where the views provided by the hillside design yawn out their rolling scrub in a series of geological undulations; as one enters, the landscape expands into a breathtaking moment of homecoming. Interiors are understated, with ornament relegated to the competing textures of poured concrete, hardwood, and the thunderhead-gray masonry used to build the rather imposingly monolithic recent linear fireplace accent wall.

Other details of the remarkable single-level residence include multiple pyramid skylights, an original oak-paneled wet bar, series windows, and a kitchen lodged somewhere between midcentury and Japandi.
