Now up for grabs in the Palos Verdes Peninsula is an impeccable midcentury modern designed by Richard Neutra in 1949. Located within the gated community of Rolling Hills, the classic post and beam was built for Clarence Coe, a chemical engineer for Union Oil.

Measuring 2,018 square feet, the two-bedroom, three-bath residence is a shining example of organic modernism. Features include wood-beamed ceilings and exterior siding, a working fireplace, built-in cabinets, desks, and seating, a ribbon of transom windows on its front side, and vast expanses of glass along its ocean-facing side that frame picture-postcard views.

Surrounded by trees on a 1.02-acre lot, the property is listed with Melissa Resich of RE/MAX Estate Properties with an asking price of $1.95 million. Monthly HOA dues are $313.

Built-ins were oriented low and horizontally so as not to obstruct the glorious views.
The home’s kitchen has been updated with teal shelves and stainless appliances.
There are two bedrooms, both featuring built-in furniture and cabinetry.

The structure blends in seamlessly with its surrounding landscape.
Just another technicolor sunset.
