Richard Neutra Home in Uniontown, PA

No, this isn’t a joke! This house was designed by architect Richard Neutra and is for sale! I grew up just around the corner from this house and always loved it but I didn’t know who designed it. Uniontown is a small town and it gets it’s fair share of jokes but the truth is, it has a lot of great homes that are similar to this one. This house was first posted over on Pittsburgh House Histories and then brought to my attention by a friend.


The Daniel and Gertrude (Trudi) Pariser House was built in 1959. As you can see, it needs some work. The lighting and carpets need ripped out immediately. If you flip through all the photos you will know what I mean. When I first saw them, I wanted to immediately run over and water their lawn and plant new trees. It looks like it hasn’t been touched in years! I do think after you fixed up some of the interior and made it feel like your own, it would be a great place to live.


These photos are from the listing and are a bit blury

If you remember, Neutra designed the Kaufmann’s home in Palm Springs, California that I posted a while back. His portfolio is really extensive with so many great homes, I recommend scrolling through this site to see for yourself.

    I grew up in Fayette County (Normalville, specifically) and never knew this existed either. Awesome, thank you!

    I love Neutra’s design and hope someone will fall for this one and restore it to its original glory. One of the best things about Neutra’s houses was their relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces and, even from these photographs, you can see how much potential this house has to embody this quality. I hope your post introduces the house to somebody who can buy it and fix it up. I wish I could!
