Making its first outing on the market in 15 years is Richard Neutra’s Bonnet House in Beachwood Canyon.
Faced with a challenging sloped lot, Neutra designed the two-bedroom, two-bath residence as series of cubes angled into the hillside, orienting them to maximize southwest views—a plan that earned the 1941 home praise in Architectural Record and Arts & Artists magazines.
Per its listing, the Bonnet House maintains its original floor plan, and contains an additional studio or office, and a laundry room with wet bar. Architectural features include International-style ribbon windows, two fireplaces, hardwood floors, and a sliding glass wall that opens to a spacious flagstone deck for al fresco enjoyment of the scenic views.
The home’s kitchen and baths have been updated, along with its roof, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems.
Last sold in 2003 for $775,000, the pedigreed property is now listed with an asking price of $1.795 million.
