  • With its organic, horizontal silhouette, raw concrete facade, and Bauhaus-leaning interiors, this midcentury nature retreat brings modernity to the mountains.

    Set high in a coastal mountain range in Topanga, California, is Saddle Peak—a two-level, four-bedroom holiday rental house with sublime geometry and defined lines.

    Coexisting with its dramatic natural surroundings, this midcentury-style house was designed by award-winning Californian firm Sant Architects, and is available for rent through Boutique Homes.

    Built predominantly with iron beams, monolithic concrete slabs, wood, and glass, the house is a wonderful and earthy composition of texture and light.

    Expansive walls of glass infuse the interiors with light while framing stunning, panoramic views of the ocean, mountains, and nearby Catalina Island.

    On the upper level is the main living area, which overlooks the property’s pool and gardens. Here, you'll find a smart, slide-away fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, and a dining area. This part of the home also has oversized, slide-away doors that open to present different perspectives and angles of the property. Also on the upper level are two of the three bedrooms. The master bedroom is located on the level below.

    Wood floors and walls are accented by pops of bright blue, red, purple, and yellow. Outfitting the interior with carefully selected furniture by Hans Wegner, Jasper Morrison, and Stefan Diez, Sant Architects has created a Southern Californian escape that offers seamless indoor-outdoor living, and that brings contemporary style out to nature.
