Studio City Tree House
Because this lovely canyon home sits amongst some of the most spectacular oak trees in the LA area, it feels much more like a rustic tree house than a remodeled ranch. The owners have been clients of mine for years and we have worked on this house in many phases. The house has 5 bathrooms and the owner wanted each of them to have their own identity based on where they are located as well as their "user profile". For example, the powder room, attached to the main living areas, is probably the most traditional bathroom. In addition to the subway tile wainscoting that actually enhances the odd shape of the room, the owner requested to use an English antique side board and some vintage English etchings. The pool bathroom, which opens to the pool and yard, marries the rustic exterior with a more zen-like, spa feel. Overall, its a very warm and inviting home and the owners are constantly entertaining friends and family both inside and out.
