A Newly Constructed, fully permitted 1,180 sq ft home offering substantial space for expansion - A rare opportunity tucked away in the heart of Topanga Canyon on nearly 1 acre of usable flat land, this magnificent fire resistant property offers a serene escape from the fast-paced urban lifestyle. Accessible via a shared driveway and a reconstructed private bridge, just off Topanga Canyon Blvd, this property is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. As you enter the fully renovated single-family home through the custom Old World doors with wrought iron details, you'll be welcomed by a spacious living room with high ceilings and the original Saltillo tile floors which seamlessly connects to an open kitchen fitted with brand new appliances. The living space is bathed in natural light with large windows cut into the timeless slump-stone walls offering tranquil views of the surrounding natural greenery. Up the stairs, you'll find a spacious loft (bonus room) leading to the fully renovated bedroom and 2nd luxuriously adorned bathroom. Enjoy the private balcony surrounded by the beauty of Topanga. The outdoor space is a true oasis. When you step onto the property, you're greeted by the creekside setting, where a 700 sq ft footprint remains of the original barn (was a 3bd/1ba guest house, in the process of being rebuilt) with a newly laid subfloor in place and its own active electric meter, ripe for transformation and awaiting your creative vision. The large yard is fully leveled and covered in decomposed granite (DG), providing a versatile canvas for your landscaping dreams. Take delight in the planting boxes adorned with vibrant roses, while olive trees and fruit trees are thoughtfully scattered throughout the property. In this freshly erected main house, a series of upgrades has been seamlessly integrated to enhance its overall quality and sustainability. The extensive list of improvements includes a double-insulated (R-62) standing seam metal roof with radiant heat shields, which is complemented by energy-efficient Andersen Fibrex windows throughout the residence. A Pelican PSE2000 premium whole house water filter-softener and the installation of an energy-efficient tankless electric water heater and HVAC system, now supported by the upgraded 200A panel, have significantly improved the property's utility. The house has undergone a complete electrical rewiring, and the septic system's: the main septic featuring an oversized 1500-gallon tank, which was both evaluated and certified in 2022, and the second new septic system was strategically installed closer to Topanga Canyon Blvd. awaiting new construction of an accessory building. Structural analysis, reinforcements, and upgrades have been meticulously carried out in the house, utilizing premium materials. To ensure durability, the exterior now features fireproof concrete siding. The landscape has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate native, drought-tolerant, and fire-resistant trees and shrubs, including oaks, laurels, olives, and French lavender planted extensively throughout the property. Additional enhancements encompass a newly paved driveway, new irrigation pump and controller, as well as redwood raised garden beds in a full sun location, creating a harmonious blend of nature, privacy, and tranquility. A new lifetime bridge, boasting galvanized zinc-coated, powder-coated I-beams, reinforced abutments, and culvert protection, spans the creek. This is beautifully complemented by recently renovated weirs, stone gabions, and retaining structure that span the entirety of the property, adding to the overall appeal and functionality. Don't miss this rare opportunity to take over a Topanga homestead that has remained within the same family for more than five decades, that is conveniently located a short walk from Topanga Living Cafe, Will Geer Theater and Topanga Community House. Offering a rare blend of natural beauty, lifetime design, and a blank canvas to shape as your own.
