Buff & Hensman, FAIA

Penny and Stanley Haptor Residence, 1987

3721 Alomar Drive, Sherman Oaks, CA, 91423


First offering. Author P. D. James writes: “Privacy is the last luxury,” and with its gated and long private drive to a secluded hillside setting, Haptor Residence has privacy in spades. But that is only one of the luxuries here. Perhaps not the last, but certainly as significant is the luxury of space. Both indoors and outdoors space is the key to a pervasive sense of luxury living here. But, it is luxury without pretense. While grand the residence is still grounded in nature, and set carefully in its hillside setting within a Japanese garden by noted landscape designer Howard Oshiyama who, as a Zen Buddhist, endowed the site with its own spirit which is palpable. The residence affords canyon, city, and mountain vistas, and includes a two-story living room, open-plan dining room, media room, fully equipped kitchen with eat-in seating, two bedrooms, and two and a half baths on the first floor. The entire second floor is devoted to the master suite which offers an office, exercise room, dressing area, two walk-in closets and a very luxurious master bath.
