The residence of Edgar J.Kaufmann sold for 25 million dollars
The American businessman Edgat J. Kaufmann Sr. is at the origin of the request for the construction of two exceptional residences. Firstly, the sublime "Fallingwater House" commissioned from Frank Llyod Wright, but also the Palm Springs villa, "Kaufmann Desert House", designed by Richard Neutra. 

The latter saw the light of day in 1946, its linear style, complemented by a variety of materials giving a modern 300 sqm complex. However, after the death of its owner, the state of the house deteriorated, even if some people tried to redevelop it, it was only the couple Beth and Brett Harris who succeeded in restoring it to its former glory in 1992. Passionate about the house, they tried to preserve a style as faithful as possible to the original house, to the point of opening a stone quarry to select the same stones as those present in the house.

They embellished the house with a swimming pool pavilion, a tennis court and increased the size of its grounds. Auctioned at Christie's at the time of the couple's divorce, the sale is however broken. Today, the mythical house is composed of 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 9,000 sqm of land and is offered at Sotheby's auction for $25 million.
