Anna Stem, a Ukrainian film actress and her produce husband Dr. Eugen Frenkes arrived in Los Angeles to work for Samuel Goldwyn.  They hired Richard Neutra to design a European style modern home situated on one lot of a double lot on a hill in Santa Monica.
The Ten-Frenkes later sold the home to Art Cohn. Cohn was killed in the same plane crash that killed Mike Todd. After Cohn’s death, the Goulds who were temporarily renting the house purchased it in 1953 for $50,000. Extensive use of modern concrete and continuous ribbons of glass were used to make the house look like houses in France and Germany.
The story of the restoration of the house and Julius Shulman’s photography was the subject of a booklet produced a Pentagram Paper.
In 2001, The house was used to film Laurel Canyon
Experts in Neutra house restorations, Architects Marmol & Radziner teamed up with James Bider of Pentagram to carefully make all the repairs realizing Neutra’s original ideas.
Along with expanding the house into the next vacant lot, the bathrooms were restored, tile was repaired, the stairwell lantern was remade in Vancouver B. C., the wood paneling was replaced with wood veneer and the perimeter wall was rebuilt of cast blocks to re-create the original.
