Neutra’s Singleton Residence Still Up For Grabs (For Only $19M…)

By my favorite MCM architect. Neutra had several houses I’d call masterpieces, and this is definitely one of them. It is a perfect blending of nature with the built environment.

There has been a reduction in the price. It originally listed at $25M!

Sotheby’s description:

“RICHARD NEUTRA, ARCHITECT. THE SINGLETON RESIDENCE, 1959. This is one of the most famous architectural sites in America, comprising five plus acres on top of Bel Air, with exceptional views. Neutra designed this residence to sit in perfect harmony with nature. Renovated and expanded with respect, integrity and no expense spared. A new master bedroom wing has been seamlessly added, the kitchen expanded, and a gallery now blends the approach to the earlier Neutra addition into the overall floorplan with élan.”

On the Market: A Neutra in Bel Air

“The Singleton House Is For Sale! The Singleton House Is For Sale!” writes an excited Curbed reader. And so it is. Listed at $19.955 million, the Richard Neutra-designed 1959 home sits on 5.2 acres in Bel Air. “Two potential extra building pads on site,” notes the listing. And there’s a “long, imposing private drive.

When we announced yesterday that the Neutra-designed Singleton House was for sale for $19.5 million, there was debate in the comments. Is it or is it not currently owned by Vidal Sassoon? Turns out, it is. Vidal bought the place in 2004 and according to Radar, oversaw a “meticulous renovation,” including “an art gallery in the joint, as well as a massive kitchen and a sprawling swimming pool—all stunning. Because if Vidal Sassoon’s place doesn’t look good, he doesn’t look good.”
