Location: Agoura Hills, California
Price: $1,095,000

Located right outside of the Santa Monica Mountains national park, this SoCal post-and-beam dream was originally designed by midcentury architectural firm Buff & Hensman, better known for designing Case Study House #20. Following a later redesign by Los Angeles-based architect Jay Vanos, the 1964 house now sports raised ceilings with added skylights and clerestory windows, which make for a super bright and airy interior.

It’s now asking $1.095M.WAGON ROAD revised.43 WAGON ROAD revised.34 WAGON ROAD revised.50 WAGON ROAD revised.44 WAGON ROAD revised.47 WAGON ROAD revised.26 WAGON ROAD revised.36 WAGON ROAD revised.31
