Commissioned and conceived in 1952, the Philip & Phyllis Schlessinger House, designed by RM Schindler, is back on the market after A complete and careful renovation.  With Schindler’s passing in 1953 before breaking ground, this would be the site of the last home he would design.   A young John Reed was hired to provide additional plans and oversee construction. Budgetary constraints as well as owner preferences led to several changes in the subsequent plans.  

Having purchased the home from the Schlessinger estate, the current owner set about to sensitively restore and align it more closely to the original Schindler plan. Every inch of wood, glass, and stucco was either restored or replaced.  With Eric Lamers overseeing the restoration, it could not have been placed in better hands. In an effort to follow what were believed to have been Schindler’s intentions for the house, every decision was painstakingly considered. A fitting tribute to a great architect’s last work, and now an incredibly moving example of his much celebrated architecture of space.  The home is at 1901 Myra Street in the Franklin Hills overlooking the shakespeare bridge,  2 beds, 2 baths + den and listed for $1,149,000.  Call me for a private showing.
