Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

1901 Myra Avenue in Los Feliz


Exquisitely and sensitively restored, The Schlessinger Residence designed by architect  R. M. Schindler between 1952-54 overlooks the Shakespeare Bridge in Los Feliz. Last sold in 2010, the current owner, having purchased the home from the Schlessinger estate, set about to skillfully restore and align the residence more closely to the original Schindler plan. The home glows on this handsome elevated corner lot in the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz surrounded by tall palm trees and newly planted drought tolerant native plants.

The exterior undulating facade is translated inside and defines the open dining area. Clerestory windows let in ambient light to this space and accent the slatted wood beamed ceiling. With Eric Lamers overseeing the restoration each decision in the restoration considered Schindler’s intention for the property.

The living room is open to the dining room and boasts a full wall of floor to ceiling picture windows allowing stunning views of Los Feliz.

The galley style kitchen features butcher block counters, a vintage stove and views to the breakfast nook and backyard beyond.

At 1,258 square feet this property consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom showcases views to the backyard while the secondary bedroom features treetop views.

Outside the triangular poured concrete patio mirrors the minimalist style pergola above and is surrounded by pea gravel and native plantings.

Perched in the highly desirable Franklin Hills neighborhood this beautifully restored home is fitting tribute to a great architect’s last work.
