Thoughtfully updated and structurally reinforced, this is the second of 17 stilt homes up for grabs this year.

Built in 1966, each of the 17 "stilt homes" by seminal midcentury architect Richard Neutra appears to float on a steep cliff overlooking Beverly Glen in Los Angeles, California. One of the famed houses was listed earlier this year, part of a cluster forming a distinctly recognizable vista that has been frequently featured in movies and television shows. In case you missed the last, here’s another opportunity to own an architectural landmark.

Tastefully updated to provide a clean canvas for new homeowners, the home features two oversized bedrooms, two updated bathrooms, and an attached garage. The structure’s hillside profile may appear precarious, though thrilling. Yet, homeowners can rest easy: the structurally reinforced homes have survived many area earthquakes without so much as a crack.

With 1,655 square feet of living space, the open floor plan includes many spacious rooms, adding to the airiness afforded by ample natural light and spectacular views.

Renovations throughout the years have retained classic Neutra design elements—a strong horizontal emphasis, a minimalist aesthetic, and expansive glasswork framing panoramic city and canyon views.

Upon entering the living room, one is greeted by a wall of windows and a homey fireplace.

Several other homes by Richard Neutra have hit the market this year, including the iconic Chuey House overlooking the Hollywood Hills and the historic Millard Kaufman Residence, which he designed together with Alexander Ban and Josef Van Der Kar.

The dark wood floors continue into the formal dining area, which has room for a large dining table and plenty of space for entertaining.
