Move over Victorian

More tales from the weird but happy: Curbed L.A. reports that a Neutra house once offered for free on Ebay will move from Brentwood to Angeleno Heights. The Heights is distinguished, for one thing, as the first L.A. neighborhood to enjoy the protections of being named officially a historic neighborhood, because of its Victorian architecture. But apparently there's room for modern, too. (HPOZ owners: don't get any ideas about post-and-beaming your Queen Anne cottages.) A few years ago, some friends of mine, Kevin Kuzma and Darienne Heatherman, moved a craftsman fourplex to Marion Street in Angeleno Heights from the western edge of Echo Park. When the move actually happened there was dancing in the street in front of the house as it made its way slowly down Sunset Boulevard on truckback. Mariachis ran out of a bar and played. For Neutra? Maybe there will be a string quintet and The Rite of Spring, for right of way.
