Now’s your chance to own one a home designed by Richard Dorman, an architect who, according to the Los Angeles Conservancy, “helped shape the midcentury modern landscape of Los Angeles.”

In 1959—three years before Dorman appeared on the cover of Life, with the magazine naming him part of “The Take-Over Generation”—he designed this handsome post and beam on nearly a half-acre in Sherman Oaks.

It has aged spectacularly over the past 59 years.

Quintessentially midcentury modern, the four bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom dwelling retains its original layout and features tongue-and-groove ceilings, terrazzo floors, and walls of glass. It’s also outfitted with a fireplace, walnut cabinets, and a pool.

Last sold two years ago for $2.18 million, the property is now listed for $2.649 million.
