Schindler’s How House: Back On The Market

2422 Silver Ridge Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90039

4 BR, 2.5 BA

We first posted about R.M. Schindler’s James Eads How House in July 2009, when it had just come back on the market with a substantial price drop to $1.495 from its starting point of $4.995 in September of 2008. And now the architectural masterpiece is back on the market!

Built in 1925, the 2,426 square foot home has been fully restored and updated for modern living. There are stunning architectural details, including walls of glass, redwood, and concrete and original fireplaces. The home also includes many updates including an alarm system and central heat and air conditioning.

The 2 bedroom, 2 bath has a bit of a retro cabin vibe, but with a healthy dose of modern as well. The living room has walnut hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace.

Los Angeles, CA 90026

3 BR, 2.5 BA

Each of the homes are structurally independent with no shared walls, systems or parking. Each unit provides approximately 1,600 square feet of interior space, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, an attached side-by-side 2-car garage, and a spacious roof deck with views of the Silver Lake hills, Griffith Park Observatory and the Hollywood Sign. The homes at 1372 and 1374.5 also have private yards.

The building was designed and built by architect/owner Green City Building Company and features custom built-in closets and cabinetry, Bosch stainless steel appliances and five-fixture master baths.
