First offering since 1950: Richard Neutra's Plywood Demonstration/Brice Residence, 1936-1950 comes with a rich history. Predecessor to John Entenza's Case Study House Program, Neutra's Douglas Fir Plywood Demonstration House was originally built for a House & Garden exhibition to showcase a modern living lifestyle. After a successful run, and much publicity, the residence was acquired by Stella Gramer, the law partner of John Entenza's father. Stella hired architect Harwell Hamilton Harris to help move the house, and site it within its present double lot garden in Brentwood Glen. 1943 saw the sale of the property to architect Maynard Lyndon. After completing his new family residence in Malibu, Lyndon sold the property in 1950 to artist William Brice and his wife Shirley Bardeen with good blessings and funds provided by his mother Fannie Brice. William promptly hired Richard Neutra to design an art studio in the garden. The compound has served the family well through today. Although written by Maynard Lyndons son, architect Donlyn Lyndon, describing the familys Malibu House, his thoughts seem to apply equally to the Plywood Demonstration/Brice Residence as well: "Every decision about the house was intended to emphasize the interdependence of inside and outside: to speak at once of the pleasures of the place and of the importance of giving disciplined thought to its nurture. Nature, tempered, is given precedence. Architecture, tempered, speaks softly and eloquently of human presence. " Artists studio is located on a separate contiguous parcel and offers further development potential. Stated lot size and living square footage includes the additional parcel, and the Artist studio.
