Thomson Residence - Buff, Straub & Hensman
2013 has been off to an excellent start with regard to choice architectural properties hitting the market and I love this one that was just listed yesterday. Built in 1957, one year before their well-known Case Study House #20 (a.k.a Bailey House), the Thomson Residence by Buff, Straub, and Hensman is a beautiful example of the innovative post and beam designs that were a signature of the Pasadena based firm in the 1950’s.
If you had your eye on the market this past fall, you may recall that this house was on the market back then and it was listed for a lower price – significantly lower. At the time, the listing noted that the home was in need of major improvements. While it’s not clear from the current listing if any of the improvements have been made, I suspect that this home’s pedigree that will attract a buyer who appreciates its heritage.
Note that the photos of the interior are not from the current listing and are not intended to represent the home’s current state.
If you would like to see this or any other property, call me to make an appointment. David Kubiczky, PLG Estates - 323.497.7555
