Sited at the top of a slope, this one-story, flat-roofed house, had a southern orientation that provided a mountain panorama. The plan consisted of two boxes, the larger western one housing two bedrooms, a bath, a study, and a large living rooms, while the smaller, eastern box contained the kitchen and garage. The living room connected the two, and had floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors on its south side. The house was of wood post and beam construction, with a long roof overhang to shade the southern exposure in summer. The interior, like most houses by Neutra, featured extensive built-in furniture.

Fordyce S. Marsh acted as Contractor for the Serulnic House.
