Completed in 1937, after Kesling’s arrest but before his plea, the Adams House exhibits Kesling’s mastery of the Streamline Moderne style adapted to a steep, down slope lot on a narrow street with no sidewalks.
The house is the only one of Kesling’s Streamline Moderne homes for which the original Kesling floor plans survive. The house recently (April 2011) came on the market. The house has three bedrooms and one bath in 1397 sq. feet. I will be checking it out tomorrow with clients after which I should have a few more photos to share. The list price is $885,000, an excellent price for an important contributor to our architectural heritage.
Located at 3217 Fernwood Avenue in Silver Lake.
