Mid-Century Modern by architect Doug Rucker, with contemporary renovations by architect David Hertz, FAIA. A 10-minute drive up into the hills from the Pacific Coast, a short walk to Saddle Peak Lodge and Malibu Creek State Park, the exclusive Monte Nido neighborhood is a little slice of heaven, a respite from big city life. Here among the historic oak trees and dramatic rock outcropping and more than ¾ of an acre of natural beauty, this timeless post-and-beam home is at one with its surroundings. The open plan and floor-to-ceiling glass dissolve the boundary between outside and in, seamlessly connecting to the outdoor living room, fire pit and babbling brook. The original Rucker design has been preserved yet tastefully updated in Hertz’s signature style, with environmentally-friendly concrete countertops, hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and fine European fixtures and fittings. 1,876 SF main house with 378 SF detached cabana. Your personal retreat!
