Handsome midcentury by Buff & Hensman asking $4.4M in Nichols Canyon

The Johnson House in Nichols Canyon is a fine example of Buff and Hensman’s contribution to California modernism that’s now on the market.

Located in Nichols Canyon, a pocket of the Hollywood Hills, the 33,439 lot offers a private canyon setting filled with patios, gardens, a sauna, and a skinny-dipping approved infinity-edge pool.

The three-bedroom, four-bath home measuring 2,723 square feet was thoughtfully restored and expanded to maintain the architects’ classic post and beam style.

Similar to other Buff & Hensman homes, glass walls seamlessly connect the modern interior with manicured lawns and gardens. Features include an elegant European kitchen, living room with a classic oversized brick fireplace, cantilevered overhangs shading the concrete paths, and a balcony expertly extending the living area and providing a space to enjoy incredible sunset views.

Leading to two bedrooms, a gallery haway separates the public and private spaces. A chic ensuite bathroom and ample closets are located in the primary bedroom.

There’s a large bedroom suite with a full bath, private patio, and additional powder room perfect for guests located on the lower level. Located at 2530 Astral Dr, the property is listed by Steve Frankel, asking $4.375 million.
