The most well-known yard in Palm Springs is now for sale. Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann Residence, created in 1946, was immortalized in Slender Aarons’s Poolside Gossip photograph as the epitome of midcentury glamour in 1970. Past October, it was shown for $25 million, but now the rate has been decreased to a relative deal at $16.95 million.

The Kaufmann Home in Palm Springs was developed in 1946 by Richard Neutra.

Neutra crafted the modern day, flat-roofed residence for Edgar J. Kaufmann, a Pittsburgh division retail store mogul who also commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright for Fallingwater in Pennsylvania. Whilst the Palm Springs house was not the initial residence designed in the smooth, Worldwide Model, Neutra pushed the limits of the architecture with glass partitions, Utah stone, and an open-air space that the architect dubbed the “Gloriette.” It now has five bedrooms and six bogs from renovations around the yrs, but its recent house owners, Brent R. and Beth Harris, cautiously restored the setting up to the very best of their talents (Beth is an architectural historian). This incorporated persuading a closed quarry in Utah to permit them supply added stone to match the first and sourcing tailor made supplies like Neutra’s particular blend of concrete for the flooring.

The famous pool with its views of the San Jacinto Mountains is continue to there (rumor has it Neutra had the pool created first so he could cool off when functioning on the web page), now with the addition of a glass-walled pool property and a tennis court on the large amount up coming door.

If sold at this selling price, the home (detailed by Sotheby’s International), would be the most costly sale in Palm Springs history. Individually, we feel it would make the perfect West Coastline headquarters for Town & State, who’s in?
