R.M. SCHINDLER, ARCHITECT CITY OF LOS ANGELES CULTURAL HISTORIC MONUMENT #380 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 dynam ic 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. $2,850,000 / Crosby Doe & Ilana Gafni 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. Raymond Avenue #404 Pasadena, CA 91103 CIRCLE OF JOHN LAUTNER GEORGE DEUTSCH, DESIGNER – BUILDER, 1963 Expressionist Modernism above the Outpost — Los Angeles George Deutsch, a master craftsman & cabinet maker from Germany, worked on a number of John Lautner's projects. Closely involved with the Lautner office, George eventually built his own Lautner-designed house just around the corner from John's famous Carling Residence. This property, just two doors from Deutsch's Lautner House, has often been mistaken in the past for one by Lautner as well. But George built this house on his own. The design successfully reflects George's deep immersion In the design concepts and esthetics honed while working in the Lautner circle. Carefully sited, the triangular two-story design seamlessly integrates the indoor space with the outdoors. Located in Upper Outpost Estates, the residence has views of the surrounding hills as well as the city, and includes 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and an outdoor spa surrounded by green space. $1,650,000 / Crosby Doe
