No effing way. Even a fixer-upper listed as a "preservation opportunity" in the Santa Monica Canyon is asking $1.8 million. Well, this one is a bit smaller. And needs some restoration. And is in Sherman Oaks. So the asking price is $819,000. According to the listing: Designed by Richard Neutra, this two bedroom two bath home, floating high above Beverly Glen, still retains the footprint, bones and feel of the original design. Huge expanses of glass frame spectacular views, adding light and drama to the interior spaces. Changing finishes and fixtures will allow you to bring this home back to its original design purity, or take it to the next level." The living area is 1,386 sq ft. on a 17,660 sq ft lot. It sounds like it will take more than a trip or two to Home Depot to restore this baby, but could be a steal for the preservationist-minded owner.
