This masterpiece designed by famous Architect-Donald Hensman of Buff and Hensman, Los Angeles is a Contemporary Post-and-Beam style house. The house sits on almost 1.5 acres lot on a knoll facing south with widely used glass wall to bring all external views including pool/spa/tennis court (north/south facing) and cabana as part of the architecture. Kitchen has large center island plus enclosed Wok cooking facility. It is minutes away from famous Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens. Valentine Elementary and Huntington Middle School are near by. Original owner built the house in 1975 for his own family. In 2001, Mr. Donald Hensman was re-commissioned by previous owner to head the huge renovation project with builder Mario Primetti and designer Bob Moore. This residence was seamlessly enlarged and reborn into an exquisite architectural gem before Mr. Hensman passed away in 2002. This is once in a lifetime opportunity to own this precious modern architectural gem.
