For the architectural aficionado in the rental market, here’s your opportunity to lease a residence by Rudolph Michael Schindler, one of the most influential architects to call Los Angeles home.

More accurately, you’d be renting the guest house of Schindler’s McAlmon House, a landmarked home in Silver Lake constructed in 1935.

Even the humble guest house behind the main residence boasts much of the sleek design style that rubbed off on many of the later architects who made Los Angeles a hub of midcentury modernism.

The 700-square-foot structure has one bedroom and one bathroom, with wood floors throughout and clerestory windows that give the interior spaces an airy glow. The step-down living room has built-in shelving and a fireplace. Per the listing, the bathroom has been renovated and restored to its original tile-clad specifications.

The residence opens out to a roomy concrete deck, and there’s a bit of green space in the back. The unit comes with garage and driveway parking.

Asking rent is $4,000 per month.

Clerestory windows add to the natural light.
