The Scheimer house, on the market for the first time ever, was commissioned prior to Modernist architect Richard Neutra's death and completed by his son, Dion Neutra, in 1972. An indoor stream and waterfall feature are among water-centric characteristics of the post-and-beam design. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass overlook a large reflecting pool and a swimming pool and spa on the nearly 3-acre site.
