Why is it that the listings least in need of HDR "assistance" for their photo galleries are the ones that abuse it the most? Case in point, this perfectly lovely residence in Topanga designed by noted Malibu architect Doug Rucker in 1965. Sited on over an acre of lushly wooded land just west of Topanga State Park, the four-bedroom modern boasts mountain and ocean views that are plenty spectacular on their own merits, thankyouverymuch. Other features of the house include beamed ceilings, hardwood and concrete slab floors, walls of glass, a wood burning fireplace, a wine cellar, and guest studio with three-quarter bath that's accessed by its own entrance. Last sold in 2003 for $859,000, it's now listed at $1.295 million.
