The noted Los Angeles Modernist, Rudolph M. Schindler remodeled an existing duplex residence from the earlier 1930s into a three-bedroom, two-bath single family residence for the Westby Family between 1938 and 1949.

Building Notes

The Westby House had an asking price of $1,095,000 in 11/2009.


Schindler remodeled this house for Westby, and also designed the furniture for it in 1938. The LA website said of the Westby House when it was for sale in 2009: "Schindler made alterations and additions 'as the owners circumstances changed,' which explains the home's date of 1938-1949. The home was originally a Depression-era duplex that eventually became a single-family residence with a walled courtyard patio and a studio/library added over the garage after the War. The home is sited on a hillside, affording city views." (See Marissa Gluck, LA, "Schindler's Westby House In Silver Lake Hits the Market," published 10/09/2009, accessed 07/29/2021.)
