Internationally-renowned architect Richard Neutra helped to define modernism in the mid-twentieth century, living and building for most of his life in Southern California. He did, however, design a few homes on the East Coast, like this four-bedroom, two-bath stunner in Jeffersonville, Pennsylvania built by Neutra in 1956.
At 1,983 square feet, the modestly sized home feels much larger thanks to Neutra’s expansive walls of glass and open floor plan. The current owners have preserved his design as much as possible from renderings and architectural plans, and the home’s focal point is a landscaped backyard and swimming pool set in a flagstone terrace. The living room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows out to the patio, and other features include a massive stone dividing wall, tongue-in-groove cedar wood ceilings, and a wood-burning fireplace.
A screened-in porch is accessed off of the main living spaces for indoor-outdoor entertaining, and a remodeled kitchen features black galaxy granite counters, a gas cook top, and cork tile flooring. The master bedroom boasts walnut paneling, built-in walnut cabinetry, and a slatted cedar wall, and a pool house with changing rooms rounds out the amenities.
