    Originally designed by master architect Ray Kappe, the current owners re-engaged Kappe's image in 2007 to design and supervise a "down to the studs" enlargement and enhancement of this jewel box of exemplary modernist architecture.

    The two-bedroom (plus a den, which could be a third bedroom), three-full-bath, post and beam residence is built of redwood and glass, radiating warmth with an abundance of natural light. The gated, one-story home was restored with the greatest attention to detail and using the highest quality finishes and fixtures. Among them are the Bulthaup kitchen, living room millwork and bar, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, D Line door hardware, and the use of hand-selected limestone slabs for bathroom walls, countertops, and floors.

    Exemplifying the Southern California lifestyle, every room opens to and invites in the magical exteriors designed, in part, by Mia Lehrer + Associates, which include a swimmer's pool and spa, trellised lounge area with fire-pit, zen garden (to which the master bath opens), and expertly curated plantings throughout.

    Located in an enviable Rising Glen location, this one-of-a-kind offering exudes elegance, sophistication and Kappe's trademark sense of quiet. Boasting a price tag of $4.2 million it is being listed by Billy Rose and Jeff Kohl of The Agency.
