The Taylor House, 1961, Richard Neutra, Architect: Time seems to verify Neutra’s belief that one lives a longer, happier, healthier, and less stressful life when one is directly connected to nature on a daily basis. The Taylor House hidden in Whiting Woods is one of Neutra’s ideal creations to test this tenet. Sited on over a half acre in the Verdugo Woodlands, and sheltered by mature native California Live Oaks, the place is a peaceful and private retreat from City cares, yet only 4 minutes away from good shopping and dining at the quaint Montrose Village, and less than 1/2 an hours drive to the Valley Studios. Residence incorporates open plan living areas, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a two car carport. Historic black and white Julius Shulman pictures are courtesy of: © J. Paul Getty Trust.
