Santa Monica,CA Neutra's Barsha Residence

Postby Midcentury Mod » Thu Apr 17, 2008 1:09 pm

I happened to be in Santa Monica last week so I decided to go take a look @ Richard Neutra's Barscha Residence. I was surprised to see the condition that the house is currently in.

The house is dilapitaded,to be quite honest most would consider it a tear town. Now I understand why the listing agent is using archival photos for marketing purposes.

It looks like a job for Marmol Radziner.

So Sad

I did the same thing a couple weeks ago. It's really depressing. And so poorly sited. Plus--please tell me I'm crazy--I think someone added a swimming pool on the roof! Ugh.

Or maybe it could be moved again, having been moved to its present location. Really sad looking, at least from the exterior. But there aren't all that many Neutra's, so I hope a good owner will fix it up. And even a poorly maintained one can come back - for example the Grace Lewis Miller House in Palm Springs. That one was a slum for decades and now it's come back to life:

According to Neutra scholar Barbara Lamprecht it was purchased by a real estate investor planning a "sophisticated" restoration. All is well.
