Built in 1959 by the award-winning firm Buff, Straub & Hensman—the creators of more than 300 houses throughout Southern California in their heyday—the Thompson Moseley House in San Marino, California, is a stellar example of midcentury post-and-beam architecture. In 2009, the home was thoughtfully restored by Space International, who stayed true to the architects’ original intent.
Now on the market for a cool $4,000,000, the three-bed, three-bath residence offers open-plan living with a chef’s kitchen and wet bar, a glass-enclosed bedroom suite, a pool and guesthouse—and a very on-trend hideaway "cloffice."
In the 2009 renovation, Space International upgraded the post-and-beam structure and ensured that glazing met modern energy standards, all along meticulously maintaining the original millwork. The kitchen and bathrooms were modernized, along with the main bedroom suite, and the communal areas were enhanced with a warm palette of white oak, light gray stone, and reclaimed oak flooring in reference to the home’s woodsy surroundings.
1030 Canon Drive, San Marino, also known as The Thompson Moseley House, is currently on the market for $4,000,000 listed by George Penner of Deasy Penner Podley.
