This Richard Neutra-designed home in Claremont was built in 1959 and is now for sale for the first time in nearly two decades.

The elegant post and beam measures 1,854 square feet and features walls of glass, sliding doors, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. On a one-third-acre lot in the Padua Hills neighborhood, the L-shaped home borders a long rectangular pool, while one of the three bedrooms opens to a well manicured backyard.

The front lawn has also been neatly landscaped, with drought-friendly succulents and stone pathways.

Per the listing, the home is owned by a disciple of Neutra, who studied with the modernist master in the 1960s. As such, many of the original architectural features have been well preserved, including built-in furniture and shelving, sconces, lighting fixtures, and the living room fireplace.

Last sold in 1999 for $409,000, the home is now asking $1.25 million.
