This Sherman Oaks residence is one of the Platform Houses, a collection of houses all along Oakfield Drive designed by major Modernist Richard Neutra, and so named because they’re built on giant cantilevered platforms that allow them to jut out terrifyingly over the hillside. The house as it is now features Brazilian hardwood floors throughout, “embedded speakers,” a fireplace, and large sliding glass doors that lead out to the wide back deck, but it seems to have been thoroughly stripped of most (if not all) of anything that could identify it as a Neutra (or attractive). Instead, it’s had a generic, top-of-the-line-tract-house look imposed upon it.
