Property description

NEW, BIG, AND POSITIVELY PRISMATIC! A truly one-of-a kind, visually-enlivening space. Architectural embellishments and artful details everywhere you look.

ABUNDANTLY-APPOINTED STUDIO APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF BUCOLIC AND BOHEMIAN TOPANGA CANYON, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA'S BASTION OF ARTFUL ECCENTRICITY, SUPER-CLOSE TO THE BEACH, AND MINUTES TO METROPOLITAN LOS ANGELES, YET FEELS LIKE A ZILLION MILES AWAY. SURROUNDED BY 160,000 ACRES OF PARKLAND. SLEEPS THREE.

UNSUITABLE FOR PETS, PARTIES, LOUD VOICES OR LOUD MUSIC. Noise carries in the quiet canyon. It is imperative that guests preserve the serenity so coveted by residents, and visitors alike.

AMENITIES APLENTY:
ELBOW ROOM Open floor plan, Two of the studio's walls literally open up wide onto lushly-landscaped patios.
QUEEN-SIZED BED
PLUS FOLD OUT SOFA-BED

TWO BIG PATIOS:
BIG BUBBLING FOUNTAIN
OFF-STREET PARKING for two to three cars
GORGEOUS POOL (when available, which is often) across the street at the Mountain Mermaid.
FULL-SIZED COW. Black and white replica of the iconic Holstein variety, just for the heck of it.

QUIRKY, YET COMFORTABLE. For all of it's visual vibrancy, you will find this spacious studio space to be extra-ordinarily comfortable and calming with lots of places to lounge and relax and soothing water sounds pervading the premises. If the water sound is not to your liking, simply turn it off.

SPACE ALL OVER THE PLACE, INSIDE AND OUT. Eleven foot-tall ceilings, 700 square-feet of interior floor-space (that's as big as a three-car garage), and 1,100 square-feet of lushly landscaped "outdoor rooms".

SURROUNDED BY 245 SQUARE MILES OF UNBRIDLED RURAL BLISS, THE SANTA MONICA NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, THE WORLD'S LARGEST URBAN NATIONAL PARK.

SLEEPS THREE. One queen-sized bed with a $2,000. Tempedic mattress, plus a high-quality Lazy-Boy fold-out sofa-bed. Two closets, iron, ironing board.

MOVABLE WALL. Push-button 20-foot-wide door lifts up overhead to let the outside in.

TWO LUSH PATIOS with colorful vintage antique bouncers and gliders. 1,000 square feet of "outdoor rooms" on two sides with big babbling fountain, and a life-size HOLSTEIN COW.

CLOSE TO THE BEACH, MALIBU, RESTAURANTS, ENTERTAINMENT AND STORES.
TO THE SOUTH: Five minutes to the quaint commercial center of Topanga with coffee shops, eateries
TO THE NORTH: Ten minutes to the south is the Pacific Ocean and the city of Malibu.

OUT OF THE ORDINARY AND OUT IN THE COUNTRY. The owner-designer is a life-long visual artist, illustrator, and antique aficionado.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a life-long Los Angeleno, artist, painter, and illustrator with a penchant for houses, history, butterflies, and beautiful old things. I love to restore derelict buildings and repurpose obsolete objects.

Why the Owner Chose Sylvia Park, Topanga, CA, USA:
There is nothing else quite like it, the opposite of the ordinary. It's fun. At least it was for me to create, and may be for you to inhabit, as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
A simultaneously quirky and imminently livable space.
