The Bonnet House by Richard Neutra – This seminal 1942 design of unusual series of cubes angled into a steep hillside was widely hailed by critics in ?Architectural Record? and ?Arts & Artists?. Restored with integrity by its current owner, a well-known architectural writer, the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, brilliantly sited in the Hollywood Hills, expands its living-dining area thru walls of glass to canyon and city views. Hardwood floors, 2 hearths, bonus room, 1-car garage. Sloping high ceilings that parallel the line of the hillside and a use of curves to offset the rectilinear form make the Bonnet House a defiantly original addition to the Neutra canon.
