The Rados House is one of the largest Neutra-designed residences in the United States.
Located in Rancho Palos Verdes, a suburb of Los Angeles, the Rados House was designed by Richard Neutra in 1957 for John Rados, a prolific shipbuilder and the owner of Harbor Boat Building Company. Set at the end of a long, private driveway, the 4,000-square-foot home is carved out of the hillside and enjoys a spectacular, 270-degree view of the entire Los Angeles Basin.
