Architect's Family Home
Looking for a private zen retreat or fun family adventure? This may be the best deal for a full size home on the mountain. Part of the reason is that we only rent when we go away, and our pets stay at the house. So if you are willing to daily feed and take care of 2 indoor cats and a dog, this is a great deal for a lovely space in the middle of Santa Monica Mountains. 10 min. to the beach and Malibu, 15 min. to Santa Monica. Our home has a stunning deck facing the mountains, fireplace, wi-fi, 2 bd, (main bedroom with king, and other with single bed), 2 baths, a fun little loft, plus a convertible queen couch that sleeps 2 in living room. (1300 sq. ft. plus two large decks) Our backyard and side yard is Topanga State Park, and we have direct private trail access for miles and miles of hiking and mountain biking. We are shaded in an oak grove, with large horse pasture and mountain views. Topangan's are just about the most interesting, conscious, unique, artistic and loving people you will meet. The center of Topanga, a popular spot for shopping, yoga, and dining, is only 4 minutes away. Our oak woodland and only one other neighbor on our access road means privacy for those in search of peace and quiet and nature activity. So you can be as social or reclusive as you please. Once again, our home comes with two soft indoor cats, Annie & Josie and a sweet dog, Tori, who love visitors and are easy to live with (see photos). They are just the most loving creatures and are very gentle! One week minimum.
Other things to note
Pet care involves morning and evening feeding, and daily litter box cleaning. its all set up and simple and the animals will remind you! so this is not for you if you plan to do overnight trips. if you like animals but pet care is not your deal, we can make arrangements for somebody to feed and tend daily for an additional $25 per day.
No smoking inside or outside on the property. No wild parties, our neighbors like us, want to keep it that way. Love and respect our home and critters
as much as we do.
I am a woman that LOVES where I live. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for our sweet home and beautiful and rare surroundings. My husband, son and I are nature lovers so Topanga is a perfect fit for our healthy, active lifestyles. We love identifying birds, floral and fauna.
I am a classical homeopath, nutritionist, life coach and chaplain. I have a passion for body, mind, spirit healing and holistic living.
