10345 Strathmore Drive LA,CA

While leaving a dinner party on Saturday night I stumbled across a beautiful modernist residence located: 10345 Strathmore Drive in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles,CA.

I was rather surprised considering the neighborhood is primarily composed of traditional homes(English Tudors,French Normandie,Cape Cod,Spanish Revival etc.), this home appears to be a 50's or 60's construction.

I was wondering if anybody had any information on this home or the architect who designed his residence.

According to "An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles" the above info is correct. See link below:

Unfortunately, the Rancho Mirage Neutra Malson residence was purchased for over a million over comps because of its importance and then torn down. It was a very sad day for preservation. Apparently, at the time, a demolition permit was an "over the counter" item in Rancho Mirage at the time. No satisfactory explanation has ever been given for the tragedy. In fact the Malson heirs were careful in marketing the house. The new owners even contacted Marmol Radziner (who did an amazing restoration of Neutra's Kaufmann house in Palm Springs) about working on it. I would love to see what some rich tasteless fool though was better than a real Neutra. You know, money don't come with directions. :roll:

As mentioned above, I got my information from Gebhard/Winter's Architectural Guide to Los Angeles.

Its an amazing resource.
