Known as the Hammerman Residence, this Richard Neutra-designed home expands on its modernist roots with a mix of sleek and contemporary notes that start at the floating staircase beyond the front door. Eye-catching elements include chrome countertops in the kitchen and a stainless-steel-finished fireplace that runs from floor to ceiling in the living room. Adjacent to the fireplace is a sliding wood wall that conceals a wet bar.
