A sleek home designed by renowned modern architect Richard Neutra has hit the market for $5.6 million.

The Loring House, named after the choreographer Eugene Loring, who commissioned Neutra to design the home, sits on a knoll bordering the Trebek Open Space. The house at 2456 Astral Drive has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, including a master suite addition by Escher GuneWardena, according to Curbed. There is also a two-bedroom guest house with a two-story studio designed by Steven Ehrlich.

Neutra designed the single story home with floor-to-ceiling windows in many rooms to blend its interiors with the surrounding landscape, like he did with many of his projects in Los Angeles County.

The house sits on a .65 acre lot and includes a backyard with a pool looking northwest. Loring, who worked at prestigious ballet institutions and on movies including “Funny Face,” “Silk Stockings,” and “The 5,000 Fingers of DR. T.,” commissioned Neutra to design the house in 1958, according to Curbed.

Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker has the listing.

In August, the owners of Neutra’s Cheuy House in the Hollywood Hills listed the home as an apparent teardown. Just a few weeks prior, another Neutra house owned by fashion designer Hiroki Nakamura hit the market for $7.5 million.  [LACurbed] — Dennis Lynch
