This Topanga post and beam has been updated throughout with a classically natural and timeless design. Situated atop a knoll, providing serenity and privacy. Open floor plan, vaulted ceilings and clerestory windows provide spaciousness and freedom of movement. Oversized custom wood windows and doors frame the head-on views of the Santa Monica Mountains and the property's gardens, and provide a compelling contrast with the Maple floors that extend throughout. Kitchen has been remodeled with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, center island and granite countertops. Bathroom has been modernized with natural materials and glass-enclosed shower. Two light-filled, private bedrooms provide ample space and views into the surroundings. Drought tolerant gardens surround the house. California native plants blanket the front yard, while the backyard is a mix of Mediterranean plants and citrus trees. Both gardens are accessed through beautifully maintained redwood decks from the living room, dining room, or master bedroom, which offer multiple settings for relaxation or entertaining. The garage presently functions as a home gym and office or could function for vehicle parking. Additional highlights include a modern wood burning stove, built-in woodwork, laundry/pantry area, and separate storage room. Hiking and biking trails are nearby.
