richard neutra’s Taylor House in california is available for Rent

 

Perched on a quiet hill near the Verdugo Mountains Open Space Preserve, just north of Glendale, California, lies the Taylor House, which is now up for rent at $10,000 per month. This carefully restored mid-century home was designed by Richard Neutra in 1961 for Maurice and Marceil Taylor. Nestled in Whiting Woods, the residence has undergone a thorough three-year restoration, honoring Neutra’s original design for a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience. Occupying 1,477 square feet (137 square meters), this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home reflects Neutra’s belief in architecture’s therapeutic qualities, featuring massive plate glass sliders that integrate the indoors with the natural surroundings.

Behind its humble facade, Richard Neutra’s Taylor House offers privacy amidst oak trees. Upon entering the house, visitors are greeted by a gradual reveal of the lush scenery, framed by a central fireplace and art wall, leading to the main living area with cork floors and panoramic glass walls. The kitchen, with a mahogany bookcase separating it, showcases restored Frigidaire appliances and cabinets, maintaining the home’s original character. Vintage chrome fixtures and intricate tiles in the primary bedroom’s bathroom add to its charm. Modern amenities like a full-size laundry area, HVAC system, two-car carport, alarm system, and outdoor spaces ensure comfort and convenience. Conveniently located near dining, shopping, and institutions like JPL, Cal Tech, and Art Center, the Taylor House offers a peaceful retreat with easy access to downtown, Pasadena, and the San Fernando Valley.
