Richard Dorman-designed post-and-beam comes full circle in Sherman Oaks

Originally designed by architect Richard Dorman, this Midcentury home in the Sherman Oaks Estates neighborhood has a new lease on life thanks to a recent restoration by artist Chris Salay.

Vintage tongue-and-groove ceilings and Terrazzo floors blend with such updates as new cabinetry and fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen. Walls of glass and windows take in drought-tolerant landscaping and a swimming pool on the one-acre site.
