Raphael Soriano's Modern Austrian House in Silver Lake

New, 49 comments

It seems crazy, but according to the Pacific Coast Architecture Database, architect Raphael Soriano built his Spencer Austrian House for just $5,000, "which included built-in bookcases of mahogany, drawers and dressers." Austrian was a lawyer; Soriano built him this house on a hillside lot on the west side of the Silver Lake Reservoir in 1937. It comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a deck, a teak sink, and a reclaimed wood wall. The listing calls this a "redefined work," which sounds like it's not quite been preserved in amber. The house last sold in 2006 for $815,000 and is now asking $1.249 million.
