Including several with great outdoor spaces

Welcome to another edition of our weekly series rounding up open houses to check out over the weekend, because who doesn’t love a little real estate gawking? This week’s batch all have a strong connection to nature, including architect Hal Levitt’s former home in Outpost Estates, a Lautner-influenced modern lodge in Topanga, and a sunny cottage hideaway atop Mount Washington.
