This 1966 post-and-beam residence offers a peaceful haven in California’s wooded Malibu Hills.
Designed by Malibu architect Douglas Rucker, the Calabasas property – on the market with Deasy/Penner for $1.695m – is an exercise in classic midcentury design, with timber slatted ceilings, exposed beams and built-in cabinetry.
Set over 2254 sq m, the three bedroom Modernist home has been designed around its environment, with trees puncturing its decking, and in one spot, even snaking through the eaves.
The California property’s living areas are wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows, with views out onto the surrounding moss-covered boulders and woods of Monte Nido – which is a twenty minute drive from both Malibu and Santa Monica.
It comes with just under an acre of land that’s dotted with oak trees and a stream, and there’s plenty of room for outdoor dining on the property’s terraces.
