One of the first homes built on the hill, it was skillfully sited to provide panoramic views and utmost privacy. It has recently undergone a thoughtful and extensive update + expansion yet retains its original character and detailing.
The post and beam structure takes full advantage of expansive canyon vistas through floor to ceiling glazing and clerestory windows. Natural light floods the interiors from all directions.
Sliding doors open to patios and gardens, making outdoor areas a dramatic extension of living space. Period correct terrazzo floors are found in the public spaces of the home with beautiful newly laid white oak throughout the private.
An updated kitchen places professional grade appliances amongst custom cabinets chosen to match the warm patina of the home’s original entry divider, built-ins, and paneling. A large central island creates an ideal workspace.
The seamless 2019 addition of bedroom and en-suite bath makes for an uncommonly generous master suite replete with large operable sliders spanning both the north and west.
The sprawling more than 12,000 square foot property includes areas of lawn and garden, covered patio living/dining space, outdoor shower, and a variety of mature and fruit bearing trees. The secured front parkway has ample space for 3+ uncovered parking spaces as well as 2 more in the garage. Accessed by a covered breezeway from the laundry room pass through, the semi-attached garage becomes an extension of the home.
Walking distance to Old Town Calabasas, a 20 minute scenic drive to Malibu and beaches, close proximity to excellent schools, and situated in a picturesque tree lined neighborhood. A perfect location to work remote and yet still be within a manageable commute to Los Angeles.
