Picture Yourself in This Historic L.A. Midcentury For $2.6M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
Designed by acclaimed architect Richard Dorman, this 1959 home is packed with midcentury charm.

Named by the City of Beverly Hills as one of their "Master Architects," there is no doubt Richard Dorman's legacy lives on in this quintessential midcentury abode. Located off Mulholland Drive in Sherman Oaks, the dwelling has been beautifully restored, and still maintains all of its period charm and character. With four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, the 2,226-square-foot property features walls of glass in every room, tongue-and-groove ceilings, terrazzo floors, a brick inlay fireplace, and a spacious, open-plan living area that leads out to an alluring, large pool. Now on the market for $2,649,000, scroll ahead for a peek inside. 

The post-and-beam construction has a dramatic carport entrance which showcases the home's clean, midcentury lines.

The open-plan living room features a wall of glass with sliding doors that lead out to a pool. 

A dividing wall separates the living room from the adjacent den.
