Richard Neutra designed the Clark Residence in 1957 on a promontory in Pasadena’s Linda Vista neighborhood for John and DeVee Clark, a musician and a teacher, at a cost of $43,000.
The Clark family owned the house for nearly five decades, finally selling it in 2002. It traded hands once again in 2015, and, having undergone a respectful restoration and updating courtesy of Marmol Radziner, it is now making only its third-ever appearance on the market.
Measuring 1,972 square feet, the buffed-and-polished residence has three bedrooms, two baths, and such midcentury modern calling cards as sliding glass walls, clerestory windows, and a stacked stone fireplace.
Other noteworthy features include a heated pool, lush gardens designed by Isamu Watanabe, and panoramic views. Asking price for the 0.6-acre property is about a hundred times its original build price: $4.25 million.
