The Ohara House: A Richard Neutra Icon in Silver Lake

In today’s “must-see” home for sale spotlight, we showcase the Ohara House by Richard Neutra, a pivotal piece of LA’s architectural history. Built in 1959, it is a distinguished part of the “Neutra Colony” in Silver Lake, exemplifying the architect’s near-magical ability to integrate the indoor and outdoor environments. Alex Ross, writing for The New Yorker, captured the home’s essence: “The aura of a Neutra House is calmer and quieter… Neutra sends you into a slow moving trance. The blurring of indoors and outdoors is part of the spell.” The residence comprises three bedrooms, two baths, original built-ins, and a layout that merges private retreats with expansive social areas. Get in touch for a tour – those appreciating mid-century architecture and Neutra’s influential work know that this one is not to be missed!
