Does the name Richard Dorman ring a bell? For modernists in Southern California, it’s likely that it does, as this architect “helped shape the midcentury modern landscape of Los Angeles,” says the Los Angeles Conservancy.
Whether you’re a long-time fan or simply curious to see the latest Midcentury Modern house to hit the market, this post and beam home won’t disappoint.
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 home on nearly a half-acre in Sherman Oaks—a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles.
At 59 years old, it is apparent that this post and beam home has been carefully maintained by fans of midcentury design.
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.
Having sold just two years ago for $2.18 million, the post and beam home is now listed for $2.649 million.
