The Most Desired Unit at the Neutra-Built Strathmore Apartments is Up For Sale

The most desired unit at Richard Neutra’s Strathmore Apartments is up for sale. (And for a Neutra, it’s also surprisingly affordable.)

The apartments are a collection of 8 historic units located in the rolling hills just West of the UCLA campus (go Bruins) in Westwood. Neutra originally planned this courtyard garden complex to house four units but then purchased the land next door and added four more to the complex.

The Neutra family owned this intimate enclave of four flats for decades. In 2008 four units were converted to condominiums. This front-facing two-bedroom, one-and-three-quarter bath flat feels like a single-family home, with a separate entrance, one small portion of a common wall, and full-length outdoor decks.

Neutra’s International Style design holds to form with clean lines, lack of ornamentation, flat roofs, and wall-to-wall steel casement windows. And while the electrical, plumbing and kitchen finishes have been compatibly redone, the original hardwood floors and tile in the bathroom remain.

Crowned City of Los Angeles Historic Landmark No. 351, the complex is unique in its plan, section, and elevation. It retains an exceptional degree of design integrity.

Throughout the years, famous residents like Orson Welles, John Entenza, and Charles and Ray Eames have enjoyed living here. Will you be the next person to enjoy this space?
