An Extra Large Neutra Home With Sweeping SoCal Views Lists For $4.1M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo

The Rados House is one of the largest Neutra-designed residences in the United States.

Located in Rancho Palos Verdes, a suburb of Los Angeles, the Rados House was designed by Richard Neutra in 1957 for John Rados, a prolific shipbuilder and the owner of Harbor Boat Building Company. Set at the end of a long, private driveway, the 4,000-square-foot home is carved out of the hillside and enjoys a spectacular, 270-degree view of the entire Los Angeles Basin.

For Rados—whose family fled the Austro-Hungarian Empire—Neutra’s iconic designs embodied, “postwar unpretentiousness, technological advances, and adaptability to a newly redefined world.”

The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home features an open floor plan with an upper-level living room, a television room, two dining areas, and a lower-level family room complete with a fireplace and a full bar.
