That is pretty much why we are flagging it up. You don’t see a lot of Neutra outside of the USA. He did design in Europe in the 1960s, with three individual buildings and two ‘settlements’ in the country. You will find this house as part of the latter.

All the houses were built near the Rhine-Main airport, with the idea of producing 200 Neutra designs in this area. That never happened. Only 42 were built due to limited demand at the time. However, they are desirable now and the area has been a protected area since 1984. 10 of the houses are apparently under individual protection too. I am guessing that this isn’t one of them. Although I might be wrong.

That’s down to the fact that this house has been considerably renovated since the 1960s. The general shape has likely been respected and the heavy glazing is still in place. A design that intended to connect the homeowner with the outside space. But inside it looks pretty modern.

286 sq. metres of living space in total, with seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, three reception roooms and an indoor heated swimming pool. You also get a terrace area, sauna and what looks to be quite a considerable area of garden.

Some hints of the past inside too, with the exposed brick and especially the pool area. But overall, the finishes are clean and contemporary.
