Richard Neutra, Architect :: Strathmore Apartments, 1937
:: 2br :: 1-3/4 ba :: 1180 Sq. Ft. ::
City of Los Angeles Historic Landmark No. 351. Located in the rolling hills just West of the UCLA campus, this intimate enclave of four flats was owned by the Neutra family for decades, with this front unit considered the most desirable in the complex. Organized around a lushly-landscaped central garden, each apartment is unique thanks to variety in plan, section and elevation. This 2 bedroom, 1-3/4 bath flat feels most like a single family home, with separate entrance, one small portion of common wall and full-length outdoor decks. Wall-to-wall steel casement windows, hardwood floors and bathroom tile are original, while electrical, plumbing and kitchen finishes have been compatibly redone. The design pedigree is complimented by serious social cachet, as famous residents over the years include Orson Welles, John Entenza, and Charles and Ray Eames.
