1958 Post & Beam By Don Hensman Flipping Out In The Hills

New, 19 comments


According to public records, this Laurel Canyon post and beam, designed by architect Don Hensman in 1958, last traded hands about a year ago for $625,000. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any photos floating around the web that show what the house looked like at the time of this transaction, but given its relatively low sale price, we'd venture to guess it wasn't in prime condition. Per its listing, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath residence "has been updated from the ground up, with installation of new major systems, including updated copper plumbing, tankless water heater, recessed/track lighting, new roof, HVAC, and custom hardscape, and landscape." It's also got a new kitchen and redone bathrooms with "custom walnut cabinetry, Caesarstone counters, commercial-grade Thermador appliances, new designer ceramic floors," and new lights and fixtures. Other features of the 1,955-square-foot modern house include walls of glass, beamed ceilings (painted white, sigh), a brick fireplace (also painted white), and a "reflecting pond." Sited on an 8,242-square-foot lot, it's now hoping to fetch $1.55 million.
