The midcentury home of the late composer Paul Buckmaster has gone on sale in Los Angeles for $1.385m.
Dating back to 1957, number 2621 La Cuesta in Nichols Canyon is thought to be the earliest collaboration between architects Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman, best known for their post-and-beam dwellings.
The single-storey Modernist property features the duo’s signature clean lines and flat roof design, with cantilevered overhangs and an open-plan interior layout.
The Grammy-award winning Buckmaster – who hailed from London and worked with Elton John, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones, among others – preserved the 1,540 sq ft Los Angeles property’s mid-century features, including wood-panelled walls and exposed interior beams.
Sliding glass doors across the mid-century property open interiors up to the private pool and landscaped half-acre grounds. Its two bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling glass windows to frame views of the surrounding canyons. Not everything is original however: the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated.
