Midcentury Time Capsule: Richard Neutra’s Rados Home Is Listed for $4.1M

By Claudine Zap

A Richard Neutra–designed home in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, is available for sale for the first time since it was built in 1957. It’s listed for $4.1 million.

–The Austrian-born Neutra “helped define modernism in Southern California and around the world,” the Los Angeles Conservancy asserts. The modern architect’s iconic properties include the Chuey Residence in Los Angeles and the Kaufmann House (built for the same man who commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater) in Palm Springs.

As the tale goes, the Kaufmann House, with its walls of glass and transition to the outdoors, caught the eye of shipbuilder John Rados. He asked Neutra to build him a home on a hillside from which he could look over his company, Harbor Boat Building, as well as the Port of Los Angeles.
