In Silver Lake, rent a landmark guesthouse designed by Schindler for $3,450/month

By Bianca Barragan

On a sloping lot off Glendale Boulevard, this 1935 guest house designed by noted Modernist Rudolph Schindler is a compact example of early modern architecture in Silver Lake. That’s according to an application filed for the property’s Historic-Cultural Landmark status, which it won in 2012.

With one bedroom and one bathroom spread out across 700 square feet, the compact dwelling, called the McAlmon guesthouse, has large, well-placed windows, a full kitchen, and a small, original brick fireplace. It has undergone “a respectful renovation by the current owner includes a complete historic recreation of its bathroom,” the listing copy says.

It has its own terrace and outdoor space, as well as a one-car garage and a driveway.
