The Fitzpatrick-Leland House, perched at the top of Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles, was designed by architect R.M. Schindler in 1936 and is considered one of the city’s masterworks of Modern architecture.
Its interlocking spaces, spectacularly framed views, seamless flows from indoor to outdoor spaces, and perfect proportions make for a wholly inspiring place to spend time. Set up as a retreat house for artists in residence, it is also available as a short-term rental for $380 US per night.
Recently restored according to the original plans, it's ideal for lovers of historic and mid-century modern architecture.
The private enclave with gate includes 1 bedroom with an office that can be set up as a bedroom, 1.5 baths, a swimming pool, a living room with fireplace and a long dining table, a fully-equipped kitchen, outdoor dining areas, a bbq grill, views of the canyon, laundry, parking, and wifi.
The house is owned by non-profit organization MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House. All proceeds from rental support the MAK Center’s conservation of Modern architecture and its cultural programs in Los Angeles. Free admission to the landmark Schindler House (R.M. Schindler, 1922) in West Hollywood included with rental.
Please note that this house is being made available here for short-term residential use only – any and all photo shoots or film shoots (artistic or commercial), or any private events with more than 6 guests, must be arranged with the MAK Center directly.
