Neutra For Sale
Built in 1955, the post-and-beam style home underwent a meticulous restoration in 2001 by Irish architect Lorcan O'Herlihy, who was also responsible for the facelift of a related property, the Rafael Soriano-designed home of photographed Julius Shulman in the Hollywood Hills. The Staller House was one of many LA homes photographed by Shulman in his heyday, a career in pictures that shaped the very aesthetics of California modernism.

The home is much larger than most of the architect's other commissions, clocking in over 6,000 square feet on a one-acre lot and outfitted with a wine cellar, a guest house, and parking for twelve. The front facade shows a typical use of clerestory windows separated by vertical mullions and the combination staircase-atrium, bordered by walls of sliding glass, are pure Neutra.
And all that history at a discount! When the owner, film producer Gary Levinsohn, first put the restored four-bedroom home on the market this summer, it was asking $10.9 million. Now it's up for a cool $8,500,000, according to Coldwell Banker.
