Rados House

A massive modernist, the Rados House is up for grabs in Rancho Palos Verdes. The home was designed by Richard Neutra and at 5,000 square feet, it remains the architect’s largest residential property. It was built for shipbuilder John Rados in 1957 and features original mid-century details like mahogany marine-grade wood beams, terrazzo floors, and wood paneling. The interior includes 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms along with two dining rooms and a lower level bar that opens out onto the poolside terrace. Although floor-to-ceiling windows are found throughout the dwelling, expansive glazing encases the main living area to offer sweeping views of the Los Angeles basin and the San Jacinto Mountains in the distance.
