The long, low-slung house has three great attributes: a Modernist pedigree, phenomenal views, and a sensitive renovation that keeps the architect’s original intentions intact.

Even with a very contemporary layout, the new kitchen follows the vintage Neutra aesthetic with stainless steel countertops and simple cabinetwork. With its separate entrance, the 1-bed, 1-bath oceanview guest suite in the same style could become a perfect home office.

What We Love: The impeccable detailing of the terrazzo flooring and terrace.

More: Check out the agent’s website for additional images and information. Although he had projects all over the country, Richard Neutra (1892-1970) was Southern California’s pre-eminent Modernist architect. Have look here for a thoughtful bio plus extensive archival images of his work. Below, a glimpse of the ocean through the home’s entry courtyard.
