Richard Neutra’s colossal Rados House has hit the market in Los Angeles’ Rancho Palos Verdes for $4.1m.
The sprawling, three-bedroom modernist property was designed by Neutra in 1957 for shipbuilder John Rados and unfurls across 4,000 sq ft, making 2209 Daladier Drive one of the architect’s biggest private residencies. It’s now on the market via Deasy Penner Podley.
Neutra’s signature floor-to-ceiling glass walls are used throughout Rados House to capture far-reaching views of the Los Angeles basin and the San Gabriel and San Jacinto Mountains. Rooms have a cache of original features including mahogany beams, terrazzo floors and wood-panelled interior walls.
The living room also features a hanging steel hearth and sliding glass doors that open onto a large balcony overlooking the Los Angeles property’s garden and swimming pool below.
