Natural wonder Ancient Oaks is no ordinary house on a hill. Deep in the Californian countryside, it overlooks 27 acres of its own woodland. The driveway leads up to a separate guest house (with a kitchenette and ensuite bedroom) on the left, and the main building on the right. There’s a pergola and solar-heated swimming pool in the courtyard which, via pocket glass doors, takes you into the beamed sitting room and kitchen. Contemporary and well-proportioned, at its other end there’s a patio with a barbecue and round dining table. In the courtyard, the skylit bathroom is next door to the sitting room, and to the right is the master bedroom. There’s a working fireplace across from its queen-sized bed, and the ensuite has a freestanding bath and an outdoor shower. With full-height windows looking into a copse of trees and beyond, the office (opposite) is a room for quiet contemplation.
