Built up to the level of the trees that surround it, this tall Topanga Canyon home has views stretching across the hills—and a place in rock music history.
As chronicled in Los Angeles Magazine, Neil Young bought the house in 1968, shortly after the breakup of Buffalo Springfield. The folk-rock artist soon got to work on a solo career and recorded his second album, After the Gold Rush, in a makeshift studio space inside the house.
The house itself has a rustic appearance that fits right in among the cabins and bohemian hideaways of Topanga. Its interior spaces feature hardwood floors, wood-paneled walls, and a vintage stove parked in the dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors fill the space with natural light.
The 1,532-square-foot house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Per the listing, Young's onetime studio has been converted into a separate apartment.
Sitting on a 6,000-square-foot lot at 611 Sky Line Trail, the house is asking $1.45 million.
