Schindler's Westby House In Silver Lake Hits the Market

New, 9 comments

Yes, yes, we know. Another Schindler. Yawn. But as the LA Times recently pointed out, the potential upside the shitshow known as the current housing market is the plethora of architectural gems for sale at relatively good prices. So here's another Schindler, albeit an odd one. According to the listing for the two-bedroom, three-bath Westby House, Schindler made alterations and additions "as the owners circumstances changed," which explains the home's date of 1938-1949. The home was originally a Depression-era duplex that eventually became a single family residence with a walled courtyard patio and a studio/library added over the garage after the War. The home is sited on a hillside, affording city views. We just don't know what to make of that kitchen, though. We're guessing that's not a Schindler design, even if the dining nook is reminiscent of Schindler's Erlick House, built in the 1950's. The house is offered at $1.2 million, or $576 per square foot.
