Richard Neutra’s Pitcairn House is back on the market for $2.9M

It was under contract in August

The home was almost completely emptied out, ready for its new buyer to move into the game-changing midcentury modern house in Huntington Valley. So why is the legendary Pitcairn House by Richard Neutra back on the market?

Listing agent Frank Blumenthal says, "I put it back on the market yesterday when the buyer did not make it to the settlement table."

It’s the latest development in the saga of the 5-bedroom, 1-bath home, which first hit the market two years ago for $6 million. It had to slash nearly $3 million off its asking price before it (almost) found a buyer this past August.

The stone-clad home was designed by Richard Neutra for the owner who has lived in the home for more than 50 years. It took three years to build the midcentury modern masterpiece, which is 85 percent windows and is enveloped by 10 acres of forest in Bryn Athyn.

The good news, says Blumenthal, is that there’s still a lot of interest in the 6,303-square-foot home. There are three showings on schedule for this weekend, he says.

The asking price is $2,999,900.
