West Covina Mid Century Modern house, the J.M. Roberts Residence by renowned architect Richard Neutra, 1955. While the Roberts original request was for a more traditional ranch style home, Neutra brought then around to his purely modernist aesthetic.
Neutra’s sectional grid, spider leg design and asymmetric arrangements combine effortlessly to create a harmony of balance, transparency and lightness.
Similar in richness to that of his Bel Air and Beverly Hills projects from the same period, his signature Texas Shellstone entrance façade, fireplaces and built-in planters are incorporated.
A more than 2-year restoration led by Eric Lamers has just been completed: updating systems, recreating absent elements, and rehabilitating original details. Cork tile, original terrazzo flooring birch paneling and built-ins, original fixtures, stainless steel firewood boxes, and more.
Set atop on 3.45 private and park-like acres, surrounded by towering eucalyptus, pine and oak trees. The main house, patios, lush landscaping and glistening pool face sweeping views of the San Gabriel Mountains with Mt. Baldy at its center.
An idyllic setting just 22 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, Neutra’s inspired design now defines the ideal California lifestyle.
