Updated 1948 Gregory Ain House in Mar Vista Tract Asks $1.3M

By Bianca Barragan

Hometown architectural hero Gregory Ain apprenticed with Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra, and went on to have a huge impact on Modernist housing for the masses through projects like his Mar Vista tract, in which this 1,450 square foot dwelling can be found. The coolest feature of this residence is definitely the original “sliding and folding doors” that somehow allow for the number of bedrooms inside to go up to three or down to one.

In addition to a flexible room count, the house sports polished concrete flooring, clerestory windows, and a redesigned kitchen with Marmol Radziner walnut cabinets. A detached garage has been converted into living space and could be used as an office. Because of its historical significance, this place also qualifies for Mills Act tax breaks. Ain, who designed with the working class in mind, might be shocked to learn that this 1948 tract house is asking $1.295 million.
