Creekside Montecito in Topanga. Citrus perfumes the air. Tucked up the driveway, surrounded by waterwise gardens, native stone patios, and graceful old Oaks, this home has the soul of 1930s old California, but has been refined for today. Step up to the carved wood door and enter into a bold, cathedral-like space with dazzling wood beamed skylights, above. Cool marble floors whisper underfoot. Step down to the living room where a cozy fireplace warms cool nights. Pluck a book from the built in bookshelves, and snuggle in the bay window seat, gazing out to Strawberry Peak and the state park. The luxurious silk carpeting leads to a wall of french doors that open onto a vast, sunny deck, with majestic views of massive creekside boulders, sparkling water, and sun warmed hills. The soaring wood ceilings throughout give that true Topanga vibe. You are away. This is not the city. Step up to a vast Great Room and mix a martini or a green juice at the oak wet bar, or sample wines from the wine cellar. Handmade tiles underfoot harken back to old Haciendas. A huge stone fireplace fills the room with the crackling sounds of a toasty fire. Gaze up at live oaks and soaring hawks through clerestory windows. Dine under a vintage chandelier. Cook a feast in the open chef’s kitchen, while your people join in at the generous breakfast bar. The high end stainless appliances make cooking a breeze and double Viking ovens keep the courses coming. Step out French doors to a serene retreat with stone patio, a spa framed by a waterfall, and a picturesque gazebo. Native stone paths wander up the slope, fruit trees and vistas along the way. The romantic main suite sits at the top of the house, with walls of builtins, windows towards the epic views, and doors to a juliet balcony. The main suite bath is a glory of gleaming mirrors, bright skylights, separate vanities, a soaking tub, and a separate shower. A second bedroom sits next to a new bathroom with marble countertops and a bright skylight. A lower bedroom has french doors out to the main deck. Vintage iron gates lead to an openair gallery and to a room that is perfect as a gym or creative space. The gallery leads to a covered workshop space, and a fenced dog run or garden. A wide lawn is framed by roses blooming above the creek, and could be a building spot. Dragon Rock sits like a portal to another world. More stone paths and steps lead to a bench where you can watch the sunset. There is a lofty 2 car garage with storage, a carport, more hidden storage, and parking for 7 more cars. Owlets nest just down the road, overlooking the creek. The backbone trail and Red Rock Park are nearby. Topanga Village, Calabasas, and Malibu, are close by. This is a lovely home, in a magical spot. It could be yours.
