Austrian House, Raphael Soriano, Architect 1937; Chris Salay, Remodel 2006, a photo by Michael Locke on Flickr.
The Austrian Spencer House by mid century pioneer Raphael Soriano is one of the last remaining homes built by the legendary architect. Together with Nuetra, Schindler and Koenig, Soriano helped to define mid century modern architecture. Nestled in the picturesque hills of Silverlake sits this rare opportunity to own a redefined work by one of the 20th century's seminal architects. Signature steel framed ribbon windows define an artistic entry. Two generously sized rooms with sweeping views, viewing deck completes the Master. Distinctive and extraordinary bathrooms include a teak sink, reclaimed wood wall and boffi fixtures. The modern, utilitarian kitchen is enhanced with views of downtown and expansive terraced gardens.
The house is on the market (March 2013) and listed for sale for $1,249,000. Located at 3056 Landa Street in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.
