Perusing the rarefied stratum of listings today, we noticed a new addition to the portfolio: Rudolph Schindler's Fitzpatrick/Leland House. Designed in 1936 as the architect's only spec home, the International style residence located at the crest of Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Mulholland Drive was donated to the MAK Center by previous owner Russ Leland in 2008. While the 2,400-square-foot home was used initially to house recipients of MAK's Urban Future Initiative fellowships, the grant funding the program ended in 2009, leaving it on hold indefinitely, according to an email from a MAK rep, and the property is now being made available "to qualified applicants" for short-term rental at a rate of $550/day or $17,000/month. Furnished by Modernica, the three-level house features two bedrooms, two baths, a brick fireplace, pool, gardens, and two-car garage.
