This mid-century 1-story residence has the atmosphere of a grown-up treehouse. Set high above the road, commanding its own knoll & set within a grove of California oaks, the residence opens to wide canyon vistas. Comprehensive recent updating by Bruce Bollander, A.I.A. sensitively renewed the 1954 design. Clean contemporary finishes deftly lap over the original fabric, preserving many original details. A new modernist loggia beyond the dining area caps all with an architectural flourish. Public spaces interconnect & yet remain distinct, opening to the views beautifully. Yet the master suite enjoys privacy in its rear wing with fenced-off garden, fire pit & a detached studio. A split 2nd bedroom is served by a full bath that functions as a powder room. Elegantly landscaped & in move-in condition, this sylvan retreat provides excellent value to buyers who prize privacy, comfort and repose. Homeowner's association dues maintain both private road and gated intercom security.
