LAtimes Home of the Week

I love everything about this Palm Springs home... absolutely gorgeous.

The Kaufmann house in Palm Springs, commissioned by Pittsburgh department store magnate Edgar J. Kaufmann, was built in 1946. Designed by Richard Neutra, a pillar of 20th century Modernism, this Kaufmann house has a sleek form, sliding panels and glass-and-stone aesthetic which helped shape the postwar Modernism movement. His Palm Springs classic is fully restored, down to the stones that were excavated from a Utah quarry for the chimney and walls. The property can be yours for $12.975 million. -
