Architect Richard Neutra remodeled the International style house for Mr. and Mrs. Millard Kaufman in 1954. Kaufman was a screenwriter who invented the character Mr. Magoo. The 4-bedroom, 3-bath home in 2503 sq. ft. is currently (November 2018) on the market listed for sale for $3,379,000 and described in the listing as "Known as the Millard Kaufman Residence, this is a mid-century modern masterpiece that has been recently restored and meticulously renovated. Renowned architects Richard Neutra, Alexander Ban, and Josef Van Der Kar each lent his vision to the structure, while celebrated landscape architect, Garrett Eckbo labored over the outdoor environs.
The house is a post-and-beam to the extreme, with lofted ceilings of exposed wood, carefully-placed skylights, soaring walls of glass doors and windows, original paneling, and period detail prevailing. The living, dining, and kitchen flow seamlessly out to the deck and lushly-planted grounds and a beach-entry pool, while the backyard includes a lawn, patio with fire pit, and dramatic mountain views.
The recent renovations (2017-2018) include all baths, the kitchen, the floors, the deck, and fixtures throughout. This is a one of a kind offering that combines prestige, privacy, and provenance with geographical convenience and modern luxuries."
