Stylishly revamped Buff and Hensman in Nichols Canyon on the market for $7M

One of several Buff and Hensman-designed homes in Nichols Canyon, this two-story post and beam, known as the Ajioka House, was built in 1960. According to a 2011 Architectural Digest feature on the home, decades of alterations had left it with a “built-by-duct-tape feel” by the time it was acquired by its current owner, menswear designer and tech entrepreneur Derek Mattison, in 2008.

To restore and renovate the property, which contains four separate structures, Mattison enlisted the services of design firm Commune, whose efforts were honored with a Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in 2015.

During its two-year overhaul, the three-bedroom, three-bath main residence was clad throughout with reclaimed oak planks. Interior walls were removed, and windows and skylights were returned to their original locations, though all windows now slide into walls or stack.

Other notable interior features include concrete floors, a dramatic two-story brick fireplace with a mirrored wall, a “floating” staircase, extensive ceramic tiling, and built-in walnut seating.

The home’s outdoor space is reminiscent of a luxury resort, replete with a full bar, dining patio, outdoor shower, firepit, swimming pool, spa, and towering wall sculpture by celebrated ceramicist Stan Bitters.

Surrounded by trees on a .82-acre lot, the property is asking $6.995 million.  Carl Gambino of Westside Estate Agency is managing the listing for 2563 Nichols Canyon Road.
