Beverly Hills Finally Working on Preserving Its Historic Buildings
Saving Richard Neutra’s Kronish House
The Kronish House was built in 1955 by legendary architect Richard Neutra. It is one of only three Neutra designs built in Beverly Hills and is the only home that remains intact–one was demolished, the other completely altered.
The residence was sold in a foreclosure auction in January for $5.8 million and put back on the market in April. A new buyer is now trying to demolish the home. The City of Beverly Hills has no protection for its historic structures, so there is no way to stop the demolition other than finding a preservation-minded buyer or through action by the City Council.
LA Conservancy Seeks to Spare Neutra Home from Demolition
“We want to get the attention of the community and convey the gravity of the issue,” said Adrian Scott Fine, the L.A. Conservancy’s director of advocacy. “There is no way to stop the demolition other than finding a preservation-minded buyer or through action by the City Council. We are reaching out to the folks who live and vote in Beverly Hills. You are the ones who really matter.”

Letter to Beverly Hills City Council RE: Kronish House Demolition
Honorable Councilmembers and Mayor:
By way of this petition, supported by many letters you may already have seen, we urge City Council to review the matter concerning the potential demolition of this singular single-family residence at 9439 Sunset, the Kronish House, designed by Richard and Dion Neutra and completed in 1955. The property was previously surveyed and is included in the City’s historic resources inventory. Demolition of a historic property of this high caliber by world-renowned architects. the Neutras, would cause harm to the City’s reputation through the loss of a nationally significant masterpiece of Modern architecture.
