William Kesling - Skinner House 1937

1530 Easterly Terrace, Los Angeles, CA. 90026 (Status: Sold)

A couple months ago the Skinner House, by William Kesling, came on the market in Silver Lake.  This week it was open for broker's caravan again and so I went for a second tour.  This place is in excellent condition and its current owner has furnished - scratch that - curated the interior into a superb period showcase for this architectural gem.  It stayed on the market a little longer than I'd expected, but this week a buyer seems to have arrived.  Its listing status is currently Backup.

Built in 1937, the home's style is Streamline Moderne and is deservedly listed as a Los Angeles Historical Cultural Monument (#856). The design features sleek, aerodynamic curves, cement, glass, and a sliding entry door.  From the curb, the initial feature that wows you is the huge, wrap-around living room window. Inside, the curving staircase with chrome handrail is stunning. The home features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a den that opens to a walled patio complete with a fountain protruding from one of its walls. To top it all off, the home qualifies for the Mills Act tax abatement program. The only disappointment was the front lawn, which, unfortunately, was artificial turf.  A minor detail, though, for an otherwise very special property.
