Two Los Angeles homes designed by renowned Mid-Century Modern architect Richard Neutra hit the market last week, one of which hasn’t changed hands in more than 70 years.
The Brice Residence, located in Brentwood Glen, is listed for just under $5 million, while the Sten Frenke Estate in Santa Monica returned to the market for $15 million.
Neutra, an Austrian-American architect who died in 1970 at age 78, spent much of his career in Southern California. He was a proponent of the International Style, a modern movement of clean lines and open interior spaces, and was known for experimentation and embracing technology to connect humans to nature, according to the Los Angeles Conservancy, a preservation nonprofit.
