Hilltop cabin in LA County’s Topanga lists for $995k

By Jamie Robinson

This cabin-like Los Angeles County property perches above Topanga Canyon – and it lets the views do the talking.

Its living spaces are spread across two structures built in 1926 and spanning 1300 sq ft.

In the main dwelling, there’s a combined kitchen and living room (with woodburning stove) which is capped by soaring painted rafters. Off the main space, there’s the first of two bedrooms, with the second tucked a level below and accessed via a large deck.

The second cabin is a short hop across the courtyard. It has its own entrance and channels a slightly crisper, contemporary feel.

Currently configured as a master bedroom, it could be turned into an extra living room or even a studio by the property’s new owner, with space for another bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The skylit upper level also has a modern fireplace, in contrast to its sibling structure.

Both volumes have sliding doors that open them up to the garden courtyard and 0.63-acre plot, and make the most of the rustic Los Angeles County property’s far-reaching views.

Offered at $899K, a Restored Midcentury Abode Shines in Southern California

By Jenny Xie

Built in 1963 by architect John Andre Gougeon, this two-bedroom, three-bath property in Glendora, California, embodies the trajectory of postwar architecture in the East San Gabriel Valley.

Gougeon, known for designing the curved, concrete Pasadena Presbyterian Church, studied under Conrad Buff, Cal Straub, and Donald Hensmen at the University of Southern California, and their influence can be seen in the L-shaped home’s relationship with the outdoors and engagement with its site.

Gougeon was originally commissioned by Atlantic Savings and Loan to build a larger development of midcentury residences, but only two homes were completed before the community protested his modern designs, and the bank replaced him with another architect who produced traditional ranch-style homes. The dwelling at 909 Mullaghboy Road has been restored by the current homeowner and landscape designer Antonio Aguilar, and features large stretches of glass and patio spaces that encourage indoor/outdoor living.
