Coming Soon Spring 2017: I am excited to announce the Hassrick Neutra will be on the market within a few weeks! This outstanding mid-century modern house designed by Richard Neutra , an international icon of modern architecture, will be for sale after its nationally published restoration. Set on over 2 acres, it is tucked away between Philadelphia University, Historical Society Land and abuting Fairmount Park. The location is amazing, just minutes from center city, yet secluded down a long drive off School House Lane. Commissioned by the Hassrick family in 1958, the property features a restored kitchen with George Nakashima woodwork, and a living room with a signature Richard Neutra wall of glass connecting the home to its incredible landscaping and private garden views. The current owners have created multiple outdoor living spaces. There is a flagstone patio, a terraced courtyard and a custom, in ground pool, all privately enclosed by mature trees. The peaceful property is full of delightful surprises: distant views, rare plantings, placed stones even a monolith. The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, office/family room, a 900 sq. ft. vaulted solarium/artist studio, and a large media room. The step down master gives a feels of complete integration with nature with its corner glass windows.
