Legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright once said, "No house should ever be on the hill, it should belong to the hill." These words perfectly capture the design of this architectural gem in Topanga, California. Originally built in 1984 and recently renovated, the residence radiates an organic feel with its richly textured, wood-clad exterior.
Measuring nearly 3,000 square feet, the interior spans three floors. An open layout leads from the entrance to a large living room, where a wall of windows frames picturesque canyon views. Here, a sliding glass door opens to a long terrace, blurring the boundary between inside and out.
A wood-clad staircase connects the first floor to the upper level, where the main living areas lie. Exposed radiata pine lines the walls and ceilings, strengthening the home’s indoor/outdoor connection. An open floor plan seamlessly connects the living areas, and tall, wide windows in the kitchen invite ample natural light inside, enhancing the room's warm, homey feel.
Steps away from the kitchen is the main living room. A black, wood-burning fireplace’s stovepipe stretches to connect with the tall ceilings, enhancing the room’s grand sense of space. Lush greenery complements the neutral color palette. In total, the home offers four bedrooms and three and a half baths, in addition to a private, two-car garage.
