This classic Santa Monica home, designed by architect Richard Neutra, is known as the Sten-Frenke House. The home is located a block away from the ocean yet provides total privacy to the homeowner. The Sten-Frenke House has some unique features that help separate it from other Neutra designs – namely, the pool is located in the front yard of the property along with several other distinguishing elements.
Richard Neutra was a renowned architect in the Los Angeles area. His office space was located on 2379 Glendale Boulevard in the popular LA neighborhood of Silver Lake. Neutra’s work is known all across the country, and even designed several Case Study homes. The Neutra Office Building is a 4,800-square-foot office building and served as the studio and office for Neutra’s architecture practice from 1950 – 1970 when Neutra passed away. The building has been declared a Historic Cultural Monument and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The office space was listed for sale in 2007 for a mere $3.5 million.
The Santa Monica Canyon home was originally constructed in 1934, and was most recently sold in September 2009. The home is also located on a large double lot and offers breathtaking views of the ocean.
