Striking 1960s post and beam seeks $1.4M in La Cañada Flintridge
The glassy modern house was designed by architects Buff and Hensman
5521 Alta Canyada Road // Built in 1965, this glassy modern home in La Cañada Flintridge is looking for its second owner since 1971.
The 2,423-square-foot house was designed by prolific Southern California architects Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman, and many of its original details appear to have been kept nicely intact.
Resembling an L-shaped glass box, the post and beam-style residence is surrounded by trees. It also opens to several spacious decks and patios.
Inside are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with wood-paneled walls, Saltillo tile floors, built-in shelving, and vintage teak cabinetry. Tall ceilings and clerestory windows accentuate the home’s light and airy feel, which is especially present in the living room, where the ceiling expands to double height around the elegant fireplace.
The house sits on a half-acre lot with neatly landscaped vegetation and a large swimming pool and spa.
Asking price is $1.35 million.
