The house specifically dates back to 1958, with architect Calvin Straub being senior partner of Buff, Straub & Hensman and referred to as ‘the father of California post and beam architecture’. So some pedigree there. It is in stunning condition, with the agent adding that it has been ‘carefully maintained in nearly original condition since new’, which accounts for all those lovely fitted furnishings appearing like they’ve just come off the builder’s truck.
