Looking to get away from the bustle of the city? This “garden paradise” in Topanga Canyon may be the ticket. The verdant, tree-filled property spans 0.3 acres and holds a one-bedroom, one-bathroom main house along with a separate guest house with a loft.

The cozy main residence was built in 1952. It’s outfitted with vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, clawfoot tub, and contemporary kitchen. The bedroom has a wall of built-in closets and French doors that open to a wood deck.

As the listing copy notes, “the real magic happens outside.” The grounds are populated with pathways, mature landscaping, sitting areas, and raised vegetable beds.

21487 Encina Road last sold in 2005 for $700,000. It’s on the market now for $1.099 million.
