This restoration of the Richard Neutra-designed Dailey House (1961) in Palos Verdes Estates may not appeal to devotees of the "trapped in amber" look, but check out the before photos (at the end of the set)--the current owners clearly did some heavy lifting (goodbye, weird tile shower!) and ended up with pretty handsome results. Judging by Blockshopper, those owners bought the house from the Dailey family back in 2008 for $1.17 million, and the listing says they "painstakingly restored/renovated" the place in 2011 with the help of architect John Blanton: "Great efforts were made to keep the integrity of the home and it's walls of glass, vaulted ceilings, open floor plan, double sided fireplace, and clean lines." The house now has three bedrooms, a media room, a dining room, a pool, and a firepit and barbecue. It comes with more than half an acre of land with walking paths and fruit trees. Asking price is $2.7 million.
