On the market for the first time, this 1960s Richard Neutra modernist house in Brentwood, California, USA is rather amazing.

Amazing because the house has barely changed since 1960. In fact, Julius Shulman captured this house back in 1965 and outside of the black and white imagery, there isn’t a great deal of difference between the photos then and the ones you see here today. Even the home furnishings look unchanged.

Not that the furnishings are listed as being part of the deal, but it might be worth asking. They really are a core part of this one and so much character will leave this house when the interior design departs.

The house itself hovers somewhere between modernism and midcentury modern, with the house probably sitting well with the latter.

As for period details, you can check out the sliding walls of glass, the wood panelling, built-in seating, bookcases and desks, that wonderful untouched breakfast area and what looks like an original kitchen and a selection of mosaics that extend right into the pool area.

Those mosaics are the work of Dutch-born artist Elsa Sale, one half of the original couple who asked Neutra to create this place. In fact, this place is also known as the Elsa and Robert Sale Residence.

As for space, there is around 1,632 sq. ft. of that and made up of open plan living, dining and den areas, as well as three bedrooms, two bathrooms and the kitchen/bar space.

Head outside and you get the original swimming pool and entertaining space plus the gardens and a two-car carport.

According to the agent, some restoration is required, but I’ll have to take their word on that as they have seen it up-close. To me, this is near perfection.

A noted architect, a great location and bags of character. Of course, it doesn’t come cheap. You are looking at an asking price of $3,000,000.

If it looks familiar, it is because this 1930s Connell, Ward and Lucas modernist house in Worcester Park, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey was available for rental once.

In fact, I covered it in the early years of this site, when it was for the sum of £3,250 per month.

I don’t know its history in the intervening years, but comparing the photos doesn’t show a great deal of difference. If anything, the house looks a little more appealing, although that might be down to the agent’s photos. They really can make a difference.

Regardless of the finish, this is still a wonderful piece of grade II-listed architecture.

The names Connell, Ward and Lucas need to introduction to fans of modernism and the modern movement in Britain in the early 20th century. Thankfully so many of their iconic designs have survived and have also featured on their pages.

That includes The Saltings modernist property in Hayling Island, Hampshire, the 1930s property in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, the Sun Houses in Amersham, Buckinghamshire and of course, the Amyas Connell-designed High & Over in Amersham to name just a few.

This one, dating back to 1937, survives as well, with much of the forward-thinking design untouched, At least, in architectural terms. The bold, angular design the walls of glazing and those rather eye-catching overhangs for example. It looks just as impressive from the rear too as well as from the road. Love the gate at the end of the drive.

Inside, it’s more of a mixed bag for the purists, but overall the finish is generally in keeping with the architecture. No one has tried turning this into a country cottage thankfully. However, the house was designed to be able to be split into two apartments but is now a single house. If I didn’t tell you that, you probably wouldn’t have known.

Inside, the current owner has gone for a rather modern and neutral finish, with white being the dominant colour and space generally being free-flowing.

As for original features, well nothing is mentioned and there isn’t anything jumping out at me. But a viewing might bring something to light. In general terms, the architecture and frame of this house is the key selling point for me and the interior works just fine with it.

There is one obvious modern addition though, which is the ‘extended’ summer house (or studio) with decked area. Very much a separate structure to the house, you will find it at the bottom of the garden.

In terms of the space in the main house, you get four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and two living areas, one with access out to a large private rear garden. As well as the garden studio, you get the garden itself, covering something like 87 ft. in total and backing onto a wooden piece of common land. Off-street parking to the front too, beyond that wonderful gate.

Just on the market, it has a guide price of £950,000.
