Known as the Hees House, this streamlined, glass-sheathed home in the Pacific Palisades was designed by modernist architect Richard Neutra and completed in 1950. Neutra's signature style is evident in the clean lines, open space and a stone hearth that divides the living and dining rooms. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass run parallel with the coastline, giving way to panoramic ocean views.
