After all these years, Richard Neutra’s Loring House remains the finest example of pure, unadulterated, mid-century boxcar design.
Located up a long driveway, the residence – designed in 1958 for dancer and choreographer Eugene Loring – sits on a knoll overlooking the Sylvan Canyons in the Hollywood Hills.
The residence’s bold exterior features oversized retractable glass doors, a broad roof overhang, and a sleek spider leg column facade.
Inside, the minimal interior offers architectural delights that include a large fireplace anchoring the living room, concrete slab floors, and an enviable indoor/outdoor flow that leads you to either a private bamboo garden or a swimming pool surrounded by manicured yards and gardens.
Referred to as the Baskerville Addition, a primary suite and bath addition were built, guided by archival plans of the original home. The work was spearheaded by the firm Escher GuneWardena. They’re the same guys who helped the Taschens restore Chemosphere by Lautner.
The detached Kalfus Guest House was also added. It’s a two-bedroom, two-bath, two-story art studio designed by Steven Ehrlich.
Listed by Steve Frankel, the asking price for this architectural gem is $5.625 million.
