Richard Neutra’s unadulterated Hinds House hits the market in Mount Washington

The Hinds House by Richard Neutra is looking for her next steward. She wants someone to preserve, restore, and cherish every bit of her gloriously unadulterated beauty. After all, she is the residence of which Neutra himself wrote, “I do myself believe that it is one of the nicest and best-conceived creations which we have accomplished.”

Built circa 1950, the house sits on a quiet, dead-end street in Mount Washington. Neutra’s spider-leg roof beams effortlessly connect the space to the surrounding natural landscape and scenic panorama.

The single-story, two-bedroom, two-bath residence reveals a floor plan true to the mid-century era, where bedrooms are away from the public spaces and large windows frame lush, leafy treetop views throughout the house. The living room features built-in furniture and lighting, and an admiral collection of vinyl records sits next to a phonograph with speakers concealed in cabinetry.

A page of Neutra: Complete Works has an excerpt of a letter the Hinds wrote to Neutra. It says, “We look back with very deep gratification at the many conferences we had with you, the numerous trips you made to the site during construction, and the several visits you have made to our home since it was completed … the house brings us as much excitement now as it did a year .”

It’s precisely how you’d feel living in a home designed by “One of the most influential architects of the twentieth century, Richard Neutra, helped define modernism in Southern California and around the world.”

While Neutra is most recognized for the Kauffman Desert House in Palm Springs, the Lovell Health House in Los Feliz, and the VDL Studio and Residences in Silver Lake, and graces other neighborhoods with mid-century dwellings, the Hinds House is also one of Neutra’s stunning mid-century modern homes.
