Richard Neutra's Leon Barsha Residence, 302 Mesa Road, Pacific Palisades, CA 90402

From the Realty company's website

The Leon Barsha Residence, 1938. Originally saved from destruction by the Hollywood Freeway expansion with its relocation to Santa Monica Canyon, the Barsha Residence has been saved once again by designer Scott Lander. Museum-quality 1930s interiors showcase Neutra’s panache for simplicity, sophistication and sheer elegance during this earlier part of his storied career. Fully restored, including all major systems, the residence now incorporates three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open living room with restored window fenestration and a two-car garage with direct entrance into the walled, landscaped grounds. $2.495 million.
