Are you dreaming of a peaceful hilltop hideaway tucked away from city life below, where time stands still and the stars at night are reminiscent of Joshua Tree, where on a full moon the gardens are bathed in moonlight…. This one-of-a-kind artists retreat featured in Architectural Digest was once owned by famed artist Edward Ruscha who reconstructed the footprint. Since then, invited artists have brushed the property with their artistic strokes further enhancing the creative environment. Set amongst the backdrop of the Santa Monica conservancy in Brentwood, the nearly 2-acre property is surrounded by spectacular cactus gardens, trickling fountains, meandering trails, towering palm trees and an array of wide open spaces designed to provide ultimate relaxation. The gated compound consists of a single-level 5750 Square Ft Ranch house, a 600 Sq Ft 1-bedroom guest house and a meditation studio sitting atop the property and looking down onto the billowing landscape below. The main house offers 3 bedrooms on opposing sides of the house, including a primary suite overlooking the pool & grounds, 4.5 bathrooms, a fabulous farm-style eat-in kitchen w/center island, formal dining room, living room, library, den and numerous fireplaces creating a warm ambience. High ceilings and windows surround the dwelling for views of the outdoors from every direction. Outdoor spaces include a large covered patio for lounging & dining, outdoor BBQ area and a salt-water pool with heath ceramics and a diving board. You must agree to share your space with the local wildlife, owls hooting, falcons, parakeets and humming birds carry on, while bicyclists wind their way up and down the peaceful slope of Mandeville Canyon. Great neighbors you will never see! Inquire for lease terms up to 1-year, offered furnished only. Available mid June 2023. Shown by appointment only.
