This rustic 1937 residence in woodsy Topanga was, according to the listing, built as the headmaster’s house for the now-defunct Barton School. Now, the four-bedroom home is looking for a new owner.

Located off a private road on more than half an acre of land, the house is surrounded by trees and includes plenty of windows to take in the bucolic scenery. Other interior features include hardwood floors, coffered ceilings, a large living room fireplace, and vintage blue tile in one of the three bathrooms.

With 2,038 square feet of living space, there’s also a sunny mudroom, and the large lower level bedroom has its own entrance and en-suite bathroom, along with tile floors and a fireplace.

The property offers multiple patios and plenty of space for outdoor seating, along with a large wooden deck with views around the nearby hills.

The place appears to be in decent condition, but it’s worth noting that it’s being sold “as is.” Asking price is $1.15 million.
