Boy, is this thing spectacular. We mean, those walls of glass speak for themselves.

Richard Neutra‘s iconic Hassrick residence was designed back in 1958. Since then, the residence, situated on a 2.16-acre lot, has been magnificently restored by its current owners. The property itself can be found down a long road in East Falls, making it a secluded oasis for homeowners.

As we mentioned already, the signature Richard Neutra walls of glass in the home are easily its best features. Even when you’re inside the home, you feel connected to the exterior landscape around you – that’s not something you can simply say about just any property, much less one that’s within city limits.

Other notable features of the home include a restored kitchen with George Nakashima woodwork, a flagstone patio, a terraced courtyard, a custom in-ground pool, a hot tub, a 900-square-foot vaulted solarium, and a large media room. Inside, find a den and study, a sunroom, a great room, a loft, and a family room, in addition to the traditional living room, dining room, kitchen, five bedrooms, and three full bathrooms.

This home is seriously so cool. There isn’t really a simpler (or more accurate) way to describe it. It’s aged yet futuristic, secluded yet open, and massive yet manageable. If you have $2.2 million to spend, what are you waiting for? Check this place out, and fast.
