Modernist house by Rudolph Schindler in the Hollywood Hills lists for $1.9m

The current owner of this 1941 home has compared it to ‘living in a tree house’, thanks to the abundance of windows overlooking the Hollywood Hills greenery.

Goodwin House, which was designed by Rudolph M Schindler, has been completely renovated, with original built-in furniture and panelling restored. Its interlocking volumes include two bedrooms, three bathrooms – one of which opens onto a terrace – and a living area that frames views of the nearby Studio City landscape.

The boxy arrangement of the Los Angeles property, which is listed with Brian Courville for $1.89m, is reflected in its interiors, which are filled with niches and small alcoves. Several of the rooms open onto outdoor space: the living area and master bedroom lead to balconies, while the study connects with a private courtyard.

An original sofa, designed by Schindler, also remains in the home’s study – which the owner says is her favourite spot, describing it as ‘perfect for napping’. Outside, a partially covered courtyard has been filled with trees and plants, and is overhung by creepers.

The house is located at 3807 Reklaw Drive, close to downtown LA, as well as the city’s beaches, and is a short walk from the three-mile hiking trail of Fryman Canyon. The restaurants, farmer’s market and shops of Venture Boulevard are also close by.
