For sale: 1940s RM Schindler-designed Rodriguez House in Glendale, California


A very cool house with a great pedigree and a pile of period features - the Rodriguez House in Glendale, California could be yours, but only if you have a serious stash of cash put away.

Designed by Rudolph Schindler, a former colleague of Frank Lloyd Wright for writer/composer Jose Rodriguez in 1941, this is a stunning modernist meets mid-century property that was built with a bigger budget than Schindler was used to, which means premium finishes including Santa Maria stone, green-flecked slate, clear Douglas fir, cypress, zinc and copper repoussée panels, built-in furniture, and extensive walls of glass. Lots of period features still survive too, including the original shape/design, distinctive windows and two modernist fireplaces.


For specifics, you get a 2,356 sq ft house built on a sloping plot in an L-shape that offers a large open-plan living space, four bedrooms and bathrooms, outer balcony and galleries areas and extensive gardens front and back, linked together by a passageway.

But to be honest, words don't do it any justice compared to the images and there are plenty at the official Rodriguez House website. Check those out, then check your bank balance - it's on the market for around $2,475,000, which is around £1.5 million.
