This house received just part of a paragraph and one exterior shot in Thomas Hines' book. I agree with Edlund's assessment that the Neutra "sweet spot" was from 1929 to 1939.

The upholstery on the two built-ins is both delightful and shocking: It is not what Neutra would have chosen, but it brightens up the almost relentless monochrome blankness of his architecture with color, pattern and whimsy.

Incredible. I don't think I've seen polished black granite flooring in a Neutra house, nor in any modernist house I'm aware of. Amazing.
