THE GLASSY, MODERN RESIDENCE WAS BUILT IN 1951
Some rich person out there will soon become the enviable new owner of this exquisite 1951 residence, designed by masterful modernist Richard Neutra. Per the listing, the three-bedroom post and beam is known as the “Shaarman House,” and it includes plenty of the stylistic features Neutra is best known for. That includes glass walls, open living spaces, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access.
The 3,378-square-foot home is located on a cul-de-sac above Mulholland Drive. Situated on a nearly 1-acre lot, it offers views across the Hollywood Hills from the backyard and brick-covered patio.
Other features of the home include hardwood floors, a stone fireplace in the living room, large swimming pool, front garden with reflecting pool, and hidden shades—which seem important, given all that glass.
There’s also a separate one-bedroom guest house on the opposite side of the property (in case you like to keep your guests at a distance).
Last sold in 1993, the midcentury home is back on the market and asking $8 million.
