Lofty mountain living is on offer at this 1979 Topanga Canyon property, whose timber and glass design celebrates the rugged views on its doorstep.
The barn-like LA County home is set on a rugged 0.75-acre plot and hones a rustic vibe thanks to its pitched ceilings and walls of reddish timber. A corner stove anchors the mostly open plan ground floor, with views of the Old Canyon through a wall of glass that flows onto wraparound decking.
There’s a separate one-bedroom guesthouse on the lot, which has its own access as well as a kitchenette and bathroom. Meanwhile, the main house has two bedrooms – the main suite occupying a steel-framed mezzanine beneath the ceiling.
Sophie Zeiler of Snyder Sutton Real Estate is listing 1333 Old Topanga Canyon Road for $1.699m. Some modernisations and aesthetic updates are needed, particularly in the bathroom and kitchen whose cabinetry and fixtures look a little tired.
