A Los Angeles Times Home of the Week (it just ran this past weekend), this two-bedroom, two-bath home was designed by the late landscape designer Benji Okubo, according to the listing. According to the Times piece, the current owners, who purchased the home from Okubo's widow, spent $150,000 in "re-creating Zen-inspired retreat." A 1,412-square foot home, it's listed at $895,000. The photos that accompany the Times story are artfully shot; the photos in the listing, less so.
