Per the Listing: "Perched above Beverly Glen, w/ fantastic valley & canyon views is this iconic Sherman Oaks stilt house designed by world renowned architect Richard Neutra. Anyone who has driven Beverly Glen Blvd. has gazed in amazement at these incredible feats of architectural design. A wonderful open living area is highlighted by a backdrop of remarkable canyon views. The living & dining area open to a spacious covered balcony. The roomy kitchen features a large center island w/ breakfast bar, black marble countertops, Sub Zero, cook top w/ hood, & eat-in area.

This unique property has a rich history that is closely tied w/ Los Angeles' prominent architectural past."

Just remember, you're buying the Neutra name, not just the hideous bathroom tile and beige paint. What ever charm might have been found in this home when it was originally built has been sucked right out, but we imagine a buyer with an eye for renovation can turn this into something a tad more dapper (see the last Oakfield Neutra home we featured).
