This hidden-away Modern by the famed team of Buff, Straub & Hensman will help its owner keep a low profile: it's surrounded by tall oaks and sycamores, sited on almost two acres near Rustic Canyon, and boasts a Sunset address even though it's actually accessed from the much quieter Rustic Lane. Sneaky! The four-bedroom, three-bathroom dwelling was built in 1956 and comes with beamed ceilings, a large kitchen, clerestory windows, multiple brick fireplaces, and, in its seemingly endless backyard, a pool. The 3,345-square-foot house is listed for $8.995 million.
