Post and Beam classic in Sherman Oaks stays true to form.  


Neal J. Leitereg Contact Reporter

This post-and-beam in Sherman Oaks Estates, a shining example of the modernist form, was restored and updated in keeping with architect Richard Dorman's original footprint. Clean lines and classic midcentury details form the crux of the home, built in 1959. Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass blur the line between balanced, open-plan interiors and the natural beauty of the outdoors.

Home of the Year


This stunning mid-century modern home built by Richard Dorman, AIA, in 1959. The home was part of the Dorman designed Sherman Oaks Estates.

The home has been carefully restored and updated while maintaining its original footprint and layout. With 2,226 square-feet of living space, this is a mid-century that definitely does not feel cramped.

Richard Dorman-designed post-and-beam comes full circle in Sherman Oaks

BY Neal J. Leitereg

Originally designed by architect Richard Norman, this Midcentury home in the Sherman Oaks Estates neighborhood has a new lease on like thanks to a recent restoration by artist Chris Salay.

Vintage tongue-and-groove ceilings and Terrazzo floors blend with such updates as new cabinetry and fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen.  Walls of glass and windows take in drought-tolerant landscaping and a swimming pool on the one-acre site.
