Rent the McAlmon Guest House by R.M. Schindler in Silver Lake

It’s not often you find an architectural gem listed for rent. But here’s the McAlmon Guest House by R.M. Schindler in Silver Lake.

Sited above and away from the street at 2721 Waverly Drive, the one-bedroom, one-bathroom landmark was completed in 1935 for “Victoria McAlmon, a feminist and activist for workers’ rights, and an acquaintance of RM Schindler through their bohemian artistic circle.”

The guest house, measuring 700 square feet, is a testament to the mantra “less is more.” Filled with beautiful light via thoughtfully placed windows, the interior echoes the ensemble of simple lines found in Schindler’s Sachs Apartments, forming a series of defined spaces.

Features include warm wood floors, the original brick fireplace in the living room, and a respectful renovation by the current owner completely re-creating the historic bathroom. For quiet moments there’s a secluded terrace and garden. And you’re in a prime location close to restaurants Little Pine and Blair’s, the shops of Rowena, plus Trader Joe’s, Gelsons, and Whole Foods 365.

Asking $3,650 per month, the rental includes one garage and one driveway space with plenty of street parking for guests.
