A total retreat tucked away in Calabasas’s Monte Nido neighborhood, this 1966 home by architect Douglas Rucker offers the perks of a midcentury post and beam house in perhaps the most serene setting possible.
The three-bedroom house is set on over three-quarters of an acre of land, with a stream cutting through it. Large moss and lichen-covered boulders and a canopy of oaks are visible from huge, floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
The house offers about 2,000 square feet of living space, with an open kitchen and a master bedroom that opens out to a small private deck and the boulder-strewn yard.
