Nothing is visible from the street but an iron gate that opens to a long, curving drive that leads to the far side of the property. A welcoming, stone-clad, clean-lined porte-cochère frames the entrance. An ample walkway to the front door is punctuated by massive stone columns that run alongside a serene reflecting pool and waterfall. Walls of glass line the entire length of the back of the home and frame the views beyond. Built by famed Austrian-American architect Richard Neutra, the home is one of only four homes he built in San Diego County. Neutra, renowned for rigorous geometric structures that enclose light-filled, airy rooms, redefined the mid-century modern residence. Fully updated in 2003, it’s a masterpiece of simple lines and an open multifunctional floorplan that inspires an uncluttered, tranquil lifestyle.
