featuring 4,064 square feet (377.56 m²), six bedrooms and four bathrooms, marcel breuer’s neumann residence has been listed by sothebys’s international realty. the house, which was considered a masterpiece by his creator, is a one-level light-filled residence where white, red and blue concrete walls fill the surrounding landscape while it makes the most of its striking location thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows that connect the interior with the exterior.

the current owners, who bought the house in 2014, renovated it, keeping breuer’s original design and taking it into the 21st century. today, it is composed of modern conveniences and appliances but its modernist air is still intact. both the main house and the guesthouse have access to an indoor poor that was added in the early 1970s, when breuer returned following neumann’s request. other amenities include an outdoor pool, a waterfall feature, and stone walls and patios.
