Doctor's Office In The How(se)

R.M. Schindler's 1925 masterpiece, the James Eads How House has come down in price recently.  Since originally hitting market September 2008 for $3,995,000.  The seller who appreciates fine architecture and has a collection of mid-century modern work, has reduced the sales price to a very reasonable $1,495,000 list price.  The site located 2422 Silver Ridge Ave, Silver Lake, 90039 includes the doctor's original office set-up, which is a kick.  
The 4 bedroom / 2.5 bath home boasts 2,426sf of living space with soaring ceilings and natural light infusing the home throughout the day. 
The 2nd story consists of breathtaking living room with large terrace.
In the true modern spirit, local resources were used in the construction of this home, including redwood, concrete and glass.
 One of four fireplaces found in the Dining room.
The open eat-in kitchen plan boasts beautiful built in attributes.  It also leads outdoors to the Richard Neutra designed garden.
The Master bedroom provides clean lines and beautiful light.  Unfortunately, the photos being used to market the listing are a bit drab and do not show this house in it's proper light, so-to-speak.  You really do have to walk inside this home to fully appreciate what the architect designed.
The den is secluded and perfect including a fireplace.
The doctor is in the 'How's'!  Fully restored office of Dr. How is presented.
Another weird looking photo of the home at dusk.  Weird, huh?  This awesome piece of modern architecture for sale is situated on over 14,450sf. 
Some Google shots from the street.
