The house in question dates back to 1950, with Neutra taking on the project on the recommendation of Frank Lloyd Wright no less. A good move, as this place won an ‘award of merit’ from the American Institute of Architects in 1952.

It still looks the part today, although it isn’t entirely original. Two floors were added fairly recently, but the work was undertaken only after consultation with Richard Neutra’s son Dion. Good move – and you do now get extra bedrooms, a balcony with ‘infinity pool’ and a secret room behind some shelving. Very James Bond.

The rest of the house has a real sense of originality, not to mention style and character. Constructed from redwood and stone, it has living room and dining rooms with extensive glazing, original built in furnishings and a total of six bedrooms and five bathrooms. Space certainly not an issue.
