Property Remarks

Perhaps no other microclimate in Los Angeles fosters the cool lush treed landscape of the San Francisco Bay area as that found in Rustic Canyon. It is not surprising then that, with the exception of Frank Gehry's counterpoint master bedroom addition, so many elements of the Third Bay Tradition have found their way to this house. The principal mass of the residence, with its cedar shingle siding, fits impeccably with its bucolic surroundings. Wide open plan public interiors are enhanced with custom hand-crafted windows, hardware, reclaimed wood plank floors, two fireplaces, beamed ceilings, a true chefs kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The lush & verdant grounds incorporate a large entertaining deck with a cedar Japanese soaking tub, outdoor dining area, and quiet spots for meditative seclusion in nature.
