Enjoy a delicious breakfast tailored to your taste on the private deck, swim in the secluded, solar-heated pool (summer only), hike the beautiful and varied trails of the Canyon and discover a different pace in Topanga. Restaurants, coffee shops, yoga studios, galleries and only 15 minutes to the beach, this rural retreat offers quiet comfort and relaxation to those wearied by city living. A serene and beautiful get-away for two adults to enjoy the unique rhythms of life in Topanga.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: England, the East Coast and the Mid-West have all been home to Roger and Linda but we fell in love with Topanga when Roger was doing a lot of consulting work in Los Angeles in the mid-90s. That was when we decided this was where we wanted to live and we finally made it happen in 2002.
Why the Owner Chose Old Topanga, Topanga, CA, USA:
There is something pretty special about waking up every morning and knowing that you are exactly where you want to be. The dry Canyon smells have become so familiar...rosemary, sage and lavender combining to create the most perfect treat for the senses and feeling so close to nature just makes us happy.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The year-round sunshine, dry warmth and the way the property is just snuggled into the landscape, continues to please me each and every day and I hope it will do the same for you. Fifteen minutes down the Canyon to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and another 10 minutes either direction to Malibu or Santa Monica, 30 to 45 minutes to the studios...we love this location. Topanga is a popular weekend destination for Angelenos who come to enjoy the beautiful scenery, hiking in the State Parks or myriad of other trails, mountain biking (rentals available in the Canyon) and exploring the varied shops shops and galleries. The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum also entices many to the Canyon to enjoy their terrific productions. A choice of several restaurants, from fine dining to pizza, along with two coffee shops and a good gourmet food shop, give you plenty of choices for dining in or out. And an easy drive away will give you more shopping choices than you will have time for from high end (Melrose Place, Rodeo Drive and excellent large Valley malls) to the outlet malls. This is Southern California and you will not be disappointed. There are fantastic beaches all along the Pacific Coast Highway beginning with Topanga Beach, right where Topanga Canyon Boulevard meets the ocean. Turn right and you will be in Malibu in 10 minutes and left will bring you to Santa Monica in 10 minutes. Restaurants, cliff trails for hiking, beaches, whale watching, surfing and celebrity spotting...all in the same day! Santa Monica Pier and Amusement Park, Malibu Vineyards, Universal Studios, Los Angeles Zoo and Observatory in Griffith Park...all of these destinations are from 20 minutes to an hour away. Santa Barbara is a little over an hours drive and Sea World and Legoland in San Diego are two hours to the South.
