PIC: More of the houses built on stilts in Los Angeles,

Designed by L.A. modernist Richard Neutra and completed by William S. Beckett, the houses were finished in stages over four years from 1962 to 1966.

An orange double door led into an entryway with an eat in kitchen on the right. Straight ahead was the living room, which featured floor to ceiling sliders that led onto a lanai. That patio had glass panels that I don’t think were original to the home but allowed us to sit on a white couch (we weren’t supposed to) or on the thick pile white rug and listen to Pink Floyd, the Valley stretched out beneath us.

These are architectural wonders that on Oakfield Drive don’t seem that spectacular, but as you drive up and down the winding streets of Beverly Glen Canyon, don’t forget to look up. The best views of the Neutra houses aren’t from across the street, but from across the ravine.
