Designers of many a coveted midcentury post-and-beam in Southern California, modernist masters Buff & Hensman developed a blockier, highly geometric style later in their career. Now, one of those distinctive later works has come on the market for the first time ever.

Built in 1978, the 2,287-square-foot Hollis House sits on the west Pasadena hills and overlooks the Annandale golf course, Pasadena skyline, and San Gabriel mountains. A private courtyard entrance leads down to a wide-open living room with 12’-ceilings, built-in cabinetry, and gas fireplace. On the other end are 10’ glass doors opening out to a scenic deck. The kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms, and garage are all at street level. Skylights and exposed beams can be found throughout the home. Take a closer look, below.
