Brian Linder, founder and president of real estate firm Value of Architecture, informs Curbed that the Richard Neutra-designed Palm Springs Kaufmann House, which was on the auction block this afternoon at Christie's Post War & Contemporary Art sale, sold for $15 million plus $4 million in commission fees and other complicated sounding expenses. The pre-sale estimate of the home was $15 million-$25 million, so it doesn't sound like the bidding got fierce. No word yet on who the buyer is. UPDATE: The Desert Sun notes that execs at Christie's were surprised the bidding didn't go higher. "In the end, the famed house designed by Austrian architect Richard Neutra underperformed a bit."
