Description Change this

Dating from 1956 and built for poet Josephine Ain - who had lived in a Neutra house in her younger days - and her third husband, painter Robert Chuey, the Chuey house was a startlingly elegant essay on indoor-outdoor living. “You are an alchemist who has transmuted earth, house, and sky into a single enchantment,” Ain wrote to Neutra after the completion of the house, which featured a deck dramatically cantilevered over a cliff. “I can only hope that I can in some measure grow up to the wholeness and balance embodied here.”
