It's been a rough-and-tumble few months for the works of midcentury stud Richard Neutra. His residential designs—Vidal Sassoon's old place, the Hailey Residence, the Troxell House—are selling like hotcakes, while his Cyclorama, in Gettysburg, Pa., is officially torn asunder. He even even made an appearance on The Simpsons, and his endangered work has cultivated a following that includes Brad Pitt. And here's yet more: in L.A., a jigsaw-esque three-unit compound designed in part by Neutra is also looking for a buyer. The original home was built in 1924, though the owners didn't recruit Neutra until 10 years later, when they wanted to expand the initial Spanish-style structure. According to Zillow Blog, Neutra built one bedroom and one bathroom on the top floor, an add-on that brags much of his signature style, including walls of windows, modular built-ins, and low-slung furnishings. Originally listed in September, the property's three units—one of which was added later by L.A. architect Paul Hoag—is brimming with architectural history, though it boasts just three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
