Nestled high above the Pacific on a secluded peak of the Santa Monica mountains, this meticulously crafted home is a study in light, texture and sublime geometry. Designed by award winning Sant Architects and constructed of monolithic concrete slabs, iron beams, wood and glass, the structure’s earthbound elements are punctuated by expansive walls of glass that illuminate the interiors while capturing the stunning panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island and the mountain terrain. The effect is both elegant and simple, infusing texture, warmth and earthiness into an otherwise contemporary context.
Minimal in tone and style, the interiors are soothing and muted with elemental materials that are meticulously hand crafted and refined. All of the living areas feature interrelated spaces with oversized slide away doors that open out to differing perspectives and angles of the property.
The main living area with a clever slide away fireplace, dining area and fully equipped gourmet kitchen boasts some of the best views of the property and overlooks the pool and gardens. Two of the three bedrooms are on this level with the master one level below. The open air layout is paired with specially selected and contemporary furnishings including pieces by Hans Wegner, Jasper Morrison, Stefan Diez and more that complement the creative vision of the architectural environment.
The adjacent one bedroom studio can accommodate up to four and features identical design features, quality and detail and is perfect for vacationing with family and friends. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with native plants and incorporate the wild natural beauty of Topanga.
Modern, elegant and exquisitely detailed, this residence’s enviable placement, stunning views and graceful simplicity are flawlessly calibrated to both the natural and contemporary worlds.
Wifi throughout, HD TV and Apple TV, Sonos audio system. Weekly housekeeping, laundry facilities. Secured entry and property wide security system. Ample private parking.
Set above the coast in the Santa Monica mountains, Topanga Canyon is a bucolic and peaceful mountain community that straddles the Pacific coast and the San Fernando valley.
