Buff, Smith & Hensman For Sale

This 1996 Buff, Smith & Hensman designed home has been listed for $1.79 million. Located in Altadena, CA with views of the San Gabriel Valley and the LA basin. The mid-century modern aesthetic is enhanced by teak cabinets, slate floors, and stainless steel appliances throughout.

Buff, Smith & Hensman are known for many homes in the Los Angeles area- primarily those of 1950's Post and Beam architecture. The Buff, Smith, and Hensman style changed over decades and in the 1970's their designs reflected the Mass, Shade, and Shadow mode. Later homes, such as this, blend different eras.
