If you’ve found yourself singing “All I Want for Christmas is a Neutra Mid-Century” (it’s not just me singing that, is it?), then this recent listing in the Hollywood Hills East could make your holiday one to remember. As usual with Neutra, the design of the Hailey Residence is a perfect blend of graceful lines and practical comfort.

 Also in typical Neutra fashion, the main living space is enhanced by sliding open an oversized glass wall, bridging the indoor area with the outdoor deck and its view of the Hills.

 The oven is not a Wolf or a Miele, but I certainly wouldn't consider replacing it. I might even get a landline again just to hand a phone beneath the clock, curly cord and all.

 Visual expansiveness is accentuated, without compromising privacy, by opening a vertical glassed-in sliver of the master bedroom wall at the perimeter.

 Listed in the MLS as a 1 BR / 2 BA, the tax record lists the home as two bedrooms. A soft mobile wall, when open, allows for a generous den off the main living/dining area.

 Improvements since the original design include the addition of central air-conditioning, a small office, temperature-controlled wine cellar, and laundry constructed within the lower undeveloped space.
