This impressive mid-century modern restoration project has just been awarded Dwell magazine’s distinctive “Dwell Home Designation” previously presented to just 79 other homes in California to date. The focus here was definitely indoor/outdoor California living with its open layout to the mountain views from Sherman Oaks’ prestigious Royal Woods neighborhood. Originally built by renowned Hollywood notable Burt Lamform in 1959. An MIT graduate, Mr. Lamform was an American sketch artist, set designer and art director active in film in the late 1930’s and ‘40s. The renovation of this 3000 sq. ft, 4 bedroom, 3 bath home maintains the original divisions and features, including the windows and garage doors. Many of the elements in the remodel are made or originated in California, including the fixtures and sliding doors. The panoramic doors in the master bedroom as well as the original curved glass window framing in the dining room are beautiful examples of the ingenuity and thoughtfulness of the quality of space. Custom kitchen, high end appliances, outside gardening room with full storage shed and sustainable landscaping are all a part of this first rate remodel. Modern home enthusiasts will be in awe of the flow and feel of this must see home.
