First time on the market, a little known jewel from the internationally acclaimed architectural firm of Buff, Straub, and Hensman. Situated on more than an acre, the house embraces a tranquil and incredibly private setting with expansive walls of glass. Outdoors and in are blended seamlessly together, placing the living spaces and adjacent decks amongst towering pines and bringing nature into every room. The details are exceptional: the post and beam vocabulary, the monumental fireplace and cantilevered mantle, the translucent glass panels, and the clever and abundant built-in cabinetry. An idyllic canyon retreat with panoramic city and mountain views, an ocean breeze, and a sense of solitude that belies its close proximity to the vibrant beach communities nearby. The original owners have lovingly cared for this home and updated it with a reverence to the architect's original design.
