Richard Neutra's Coveney House for Sale

Image Source: Zillow The back of Richard Neutra's Coveney House takes advantage of and becomes one with its lush natural landscape.

One of the most important modern architects of the 20th century, Richard Neutra believed a house should unite its inhabitants with nature. Built in 1963 and currently listed for $1.3 million, today's cool house is a perfect example of the architect's core design principles.

A bright red door beckons you to enter the low-slung residence, nestled on a wooded two-acre lot in Pennsylvania. Once inside, the living room feels like an extension of the landscape with its stunning California cedar ceiling and fireplace built with stone sourced from the nearby Bryn Athyn quarry. Spanning the entire length of the open living and dining area, two large panes of glass are joined in a mitered corner, giving the sense of a 360-degree view of the surrounding landscape.

The home was originally built with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, but Neutra's long-time associate Thaddeus Longstreth supervised a western expansion of the house to accommodate two more bedrooms and another full bath. After Neutra's death, Longstreth also oversaw the design and installation of an artist studio in 1976, bringing the total square footage to 3,217.
