Per the Listing: "Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac. Beautiful wooden bridge flows over the Creek providing access to the property. 2 bedroom, office, family room and a separate Casitas sit serenely on over 20,000 Sq. Ft. lot with old growth trees and multiple outdoor entertaining areas."

Lady scientists are hot right now. LEGO just released its first set featuring female scientists, and Land's End just released science themed shirts for girls after a Facebook campaign noted that science themed shirts were available for boys but not for girls. The description on the home is pretty minimal but a bit of research shows this was the former home of Nina Byers, Ph.D., theoretical physicist, UCLA professor, and founder of a web site documenting important women contributors to the field of physics. Byers passed away in June. As for the house itself, the wooden bridge was added after a request was granted in 2009 for the easement to the property over an LA County Flood Control Channel.
