Well, here's one that has an intriguing provenance, if the billing can live up to its claims. Listing is by Sotheby's Real Estate in LA.

"R.M. Schindler, Gordon House Remodel 1950. A duplex with one side remodeled by R.M. Schindler; shortly thereafter Gregory Ain moved into the other side and, per the owner, remodeled the other 1/2. Arguably, two of the most seminal mid-century architects' work within the same building."

I took a look on Sunday, it's a fascinating idea, a fairly typical 1912 structure, with two very different mcm' interior shells. The spaces aren't terribly practical and reflect the inability to move walls or raise ceilings. Very little has been updated which has appeal, but there seems to have also been years of deferred maintenance, making the price unappealing.

Sorry just checking back in. Yes the two sides are definitely reflective of the two personalities that designed each. The Schindler side is completely paneled with plywood, not a stitch of plaster to be had. I know why he did it, but its overwhelming today and could use some relief. The Schindler side is also completely carpeted in a textured pile, rather gross. The Ain side has has more issues with the kitchen and bathroom, again both sides are adopted from what was present and then designing within the existing shell, but a lot of upgrading is needed and it won't be cheap to fix.

Update on LA Curbed.

We hear the property, which came on the market in July, has just sold.
Seller almost canceled the deal.

A source tells us that while it was someone on the buyer's side who made the eBay listing, the buyer is saying the it was a mistake and the listing has been taken down. Our source says the buyer plans to combine the two units into a single family house and strip out carpets, but otherwise, he's a Schindler fan and says he doesn't want to destroy the thing. The seller, a woman in her nineties who grew up in the house, played with Schindler's children, and remembers when Ain lived in and remodeled one side of the duplex, was distraught over the eBay listing and considered canceling the sale. But with the listing down and reassurances made, the sale closed today at a reported price of $630,000.
