Making a splash on the market this week is Richard Neutra’s Loring House in the Hollywood Hills. Perched atop a knoll on the eastern border of the Trebek Open Space, it was designed in 1958 for Eugene Loring, a dancer and choreographer for such classic films as Funny Face, Silk Stockings, and The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.

The boxcar-style residence contains three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, including a later master suite addition implemented by the firm of Escher GuneWardena using Neutra’s original proposed plans.

The home’s distinctive architectural elements include a spider leg column facade, retractable glass doors, concrete slab floors, a living room fireplace, and built-in furniture, while its grounds feature a swimming pool, grassy yard, and manicured gardens.

If all that weren’t enough, per the listing, there’s also a separate two-bedroom, two-bath guest house with a two-story art studio designed by Steven Ehrlich.

Asking price for the .65-acre property is $5.625 million.
