The How House, designed by Rudolf Schindler in 1925, is arguably one of the architect’s most significant and influential works.
We first posted about the residence back in July 2009, when it was back on the market with a substantial price drop to $1.495 from its starting point of $4.995 in September of 2008. It came back again at the start of 2012 for $1.495.
The incredible 2,426-square-foot home was revolutionary in 1925 and continues to be forward-looking to this day. Constructed almost entirely of center-cut Redwood and poured-in-place concrete, this masterpiece has been meticulously restored to museum quality.
The timeless design is a formal Modernist composition, yet simultaneously comfortable and embracing, with interlocking 3-dimensional volumes and dramatic proportions. Clever corner window conditions bathe the interior with light.
Four fireplaces warm the den, dining room, library, and two-story coffered living room.
The home is incredibly livable, with four bedrooms and three baths.
Richard Neutra designed the garden with a large flat terrace, unusual for a quiet hillside site.
There are panoramic views of the San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Mountains beyond.
The home is City of Los Angeles Historical-Cultural Monument No. 895 and includes substantial Mills Act tax benefits
