Built in 1946, this sculptural home for sale in Studio City celebrates the work of Rudolph Schindler, the seminal architect who pioneered the Southern California modernism movement we still love today.

Bathed in natural light and defined by eye-catching geometry, the Schindler-designed Roxy Roth Residence is now available following a sensitive restoration. With an asking price of $2,295,000, the 1,564-square-foot timeless dwelling offers more than just architectural pedigree—its enviable hilltop location boasts panoramic views of the San Gabriel Mountains and surrounding valley.

While windows on the street-facing facade are carefully placed to preserve privacy, abundant glazing wraps around the living room at the home’s rear to blur the line between indoor/outdoor living. Natural materials—such as in the hardwood floors, timber slatted ceilings, and a stone fireplace—also tie the interior with the landscape.
