Nestled on a steep slope in the Hollywood Hills, this enticing piece of architectural history has been carefully restored and offers mesmerizing views.

Architecture For Sale has listed the property for $1.8M.

Nearly 15 years after former punk-rock musician Jonathan Anastas purchased the home, the Richard Neutra–designed Bonnet House has hit the market once again and is now being listed for $1,795,000.

Designed in 1942, this much-published property has been fawned upon by architectural critics for decades. In fact, it was even the subject of a 12-year restoration by former owner David Hay.



Previous owners had painted the redwood siding pink, so Hay—unable to strip the paint out of the wood—repainted the exterior a dark reddish-brown in an imitation of the siding’s original color and texture.

Set on a steep site, the two-bedroom, two-bath Bonnet House is embedded into the hillside as a series of redwood-clad cubes topped with an angled roof—an unusual find for a Neutra home—that parallels the incline.

The high, sloping ceiling and curved walls are unusual features for a Neutra house.
