Who knew that there was a Neutra gem in suburban Philly?
In a quiet suburb of Philadelphia sits one of just a few East Coast houses designed by internationally-renowned architect, Richard Neutra. The unassuming 1,983-square-foot house was originally built for Dr. Frank and Mrs. Betty Miller in 1956, and it features an open-plan layout, a cedar-clad ceiling, built-ins, and cool cork floors in the kitchen—all of which give it an authentic midcentury vibe. An expansive wall of glass lines the back of the home, providing views of the perfectly-framed backyard.
The current homeowners have gone to great efforts to preserve Neutra’s original design. To this end, they've drawn upon historical documents, referencing original renderings of the home from the Museum of Modern Art, and the collection of Neutra's drawings, architectural plans, and correspondence from the University of Pennsylvania Architectural Archives.
