Known for integrating his architectural homes into their surroundings, Neutra designed the Bonnet House as a series of cubes angled into a steep hillside.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence is brilliantly sited to maximize Southwest views of the surrounding Hollywood Hills and the twinkling city lights below.
Dwell magazine reports David Hay, a Los Angeles-based playwright and journalist, carefully restored and updated the interior with no changes to the original floor plan. He added new electrical, plumbing, central air conditioning, Wi-Fi plasmas, digital TV, and wired sound.
Noteworthy features – like International Style ribbon windows and a mobile glass wall leading to a flagstone view deck – incorporate indoor-outdoor living in every room.
Other features include a light-filled wood-accented great room that flows into two patios and a top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen. There’s a sexy main bathroom and a glass-walled primary bedroom with an open-hearth fireplace. Another bedroom shows off rare curved details that echo Neutra’s Kaufman House in the same area. Private landscaped grounds based on the original plans with a mix of mature foliage, new garden planting, and terraces throughout. Listed by Ilana Gafni & Crosby Doe, the property at 2256 El Contento Dr is asking $1.795M.
