The most desired unit at Richard Neutra’s Strathmore Apartments is up for sale. (And for a Neutra it’s also surprisingly affordable.)
2 bd / 1.75 ba
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 4 units but then purchased the land next door and added 4 more to the complex.
This intimate enclave of four flats was owned by the Neutra family for decades. In 2008 4 units were converted to condominiums. This front facing 2 bedroom, 1-3/4 bath flat feels most like a single family home, with a separate entrance, one small portion of common wall, and full-length outdoor decks.
Neutra’s International Style design holds true 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.
Each apartment within the City of Los Angeles Historic Landmark No. 351 is unique in plan, section, elevation, and retains an exceptional degree of design integrity.
The Strathmore Apartments have been enjoyed over the years by famous residents like Orson Welles, John Entenza, and Charles and Ray Eames.
