R.M. SCHINDLER, ARCHITECT CITY OF LOS ANGELES CULTURAL HISTORIC MONUMENT #860 The Kallis – Sharlin Residence — Los Angeles First offering: City of Los Angeles Cultural Historic Monument #860, The Kallis-Sharlin Residence, 1946, by architect Rudolph Schindler, with later additions by Josef Van der Kar, and L.A. Twelve architect Leroy Miller, F.A.I A. Art and Music have always flourished in this dynamic space originally designed for artist Mischa Kallis as a residence and art studio. In 1960 Kallis sold the property directly to his cousin Jacqueline and her husband William Sharlin. Jacqueline was a noted concert pianist who had actually performed at Carnegie Hall. With the Sharlins' love of entertaining, and a growing family, they needed more space, and commissioned Schindler's associate Josef Van der Kar to ingeniously convert an open patio between the living quarters and art studio to an entertainment/family room. Later, they hired architect Leroy Miller to convert the art studio to a new master bedroom and bath. These changes have not compromised Schindler's sensibility. Today the building stands as a great space for living, and a fully resolved work of architecture. A sheltering carport at the street level acts as a privacy screen, and the house is covered with vertical split-stake wood fencing to help the house "disappear among the trees." The glassy residence affords dramatic vistas across the Cahuenga Pass to the distant San Gabriel Mountains, and incorporates 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, and original Schindler built-in furniture. $2,595,000 / Crosby Doe & Ilana Gafni ARTHUR & ALFRED HEINEMAN, ARCHITECTS THE LYDIA C. EDMANDS HOUSE, 1917 Historic Oak Knoll District — Pasadena Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998, the Cotswold Revival estate designed for wealthy widow Lydia C. Edmands exemplifies the Heineman brothers' creative tenure during the interpretive Arts and Crafts architectural movement from 1895-1918. The rolled-roof edges, half-timbers, and large gable graciously set the Edmands House apart from its Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean Revival neighbors. The design of the residence displays the Heineman brothers' skill at adapting historic styles while also demonstrating a sense of playfulness. Generous common areas on the first floor, including a solarium, office, formal dining room, and living room, add an intangible value for hosting extensive gatherings and events. Includes: 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, pool, guest house with bedroom, bath, kitchen and living room, 2 car garage, all beautifully sited in Pasadena's historic Oak Knoll District. 1233Wentworthave.com $4,780,000 / Matthew Berkley Beverly Hills Office: 310.275.2222 / Pasadena Office: 626-793-6677 Crosby Doe Associates, Inc. 9312 Civic Center Drive #102 Beverly Hills, CA 90210 / 30 N.
