Renowned architects Richard Neutra, Alexander Ban, and Josef Van der Kar each lent their vision to the Millard Kaufmann House, while celebrated landscape architect Garrett Eckbo shaped the outdoors.
The modernist house at 3574 Multiview Drive was built in 1949 for Millard Kaufmann, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter and co-creator of the animated character Mr. Magoo.
In 1954, Kaufmann commissioned Neutra to design the lower-level primary suite, playroom, workshop, and stairway. In 1958, he asked Alexander Ban to design the studio addition. Five years later, he asked Josef Van der Kar to bring forth the undulating trellis, service porch, and legendary landscape architect Garrett Eckbo to shape the outdoors.
This four-bedroom, three-bathroom modernist house, measuring 2,503 square feet, features wood-beamed ceilings, skylights, soaring walls of glass, original paneling, built-ins, and a fireplace in the living room. The living, dining, and kitchen flow to the deck and lushly landscaped grounds with a pool, patio with a fire pit, and sweeping mountain views.
The home was flipped in 2004 by trophy house collector Michael LaFetra, who sold the residence to interior designer Thierry Marchand. Last sold in 2016 for $2.325 million, the home is now listed by Jeff Yarbrough, seeking $3.289 million.
