                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: I am an interior designer who also owns and operates Tuscali Mountain Inn on the adjacent property with my husband Bruce. Teresa I am a filmmaker, businessman, and community leader who loves nature and hiking daily at sunset in our 13,000 acre backyard (Topanga State Park). Bruce We love living in Southern California and all that Topanga Canyon has to offer. We believe you will love the vibe of our rental home as well.

                  Why the Owner Chose Topanga:
                  We fell in love with Topanga the first time we visited and knew this rural mountain community on the edge of cosmopolitan Los Angeles would be the perfect fit for us. The village of Topanga is quaint with some playful stores, a few quality restaurants, live jazz, equity theatre (seasonal); yet we are minutes from Malibu, Santa Monica and Venice. We have direct access to Topanga State Park. We think you will love it for many of the same reasons.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  In the mountains between Santa Monica and Malibu. Hike out the door into a 13,000 acre state park. Drive 8 minutes to the beach. Drive 30 minutes to an extraordinary afternoon of wine tasting in the Malibu Mountains. 15 minutes to world-class shopping. 20 minutes to play golf. Horseback riding around the corner. Disneyland and Universal Studios are a day trip. All the Southern California has to offer. Great starting point for your trip up the amazing California coast.
