In Agoura Hills, California—about a 45-minute drive from Los Angeles—stands a striking, contemporary home surrounded by gardens. Built in 2006, the three-bedroom residence was designed by Ellis David Gelman, the acclaimed architect behind Malibu’s futuristic Star Trek home.
Pilotis elevate the property a full floor above the ground, providing the interiors with views of Lake Enchanto and the Santa Monica Mountains. "I've never seen anything like this home in Los Angeles," says listing agent Alan Taylor. "I spoke at length with Gelman about his inspiration, and he really saw this as an opportunity to create a modern residence that offers thoughtful design and effortless function."
The dwelling measures over 3,000 square feet, and it features spacious living areas connected by an open floor plan. Large windows wrap the exterior, allowing natural light to sweep inside.
Sliding glass doors extend the living and dining area outside, where an expansive terrace offers views of the landscaped grounds. Steps away from the main residence, two kitHAUS modules serve as ancillary spaces for creative endeavors.
In total, the home offers three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a daylit office with custom built-ins. The estate last sold in 2010 for $1,630,000, and now it’s back on the market seeking $2,699,000. Scroll ahead to see more of the property.
