Reach for the sky
The secluded foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains are a fantastic place to rest for a spell and re-convene with nature. And with access to nearby hiking trails, the hillside breezes of this cosy street may tempt you to simply take root. After a day at the beach or out shopping, this studiously peaceful three bedroom home, with its plushly-patterned accents and private pool, makes for a grove-style getaway that’s well worth the climb.
Take a bough
Your host is an educator of young saplings, and she enjoys uprooting from time to time to explore the great outdoors. Think of her day-dreaming under the branches of a coral along San Vicente Boulevard, or reading a book beneath a swaying Parisian linden on the lip of the Seine.
Step lightly past a delicate kumquat tree laden with fruit and enter the serene sanctuary that is Robinwood Drive. The living room and den boast delightful timbery accents, from the darkened hardwood floor and sturdy exposed-beam ceiling to built-in shelves and multiple low tables, perfect for perusing the leaves of a nearby art catalogue or planning your next excursion. A blossoming arboreal view is available through broad windows at both the kitchen nook seating and the heavier dining table, the latter accompanied by rustic shelving and artwork. The four-poster in the master bedroom stands proud and tall, but an antique chest handed down from the host’s mother, marked by exquisite inlaid details of shade and grain, demands the most attention. When spreading your branches on the outdoor deck, you may plug into the built-in sound system as you light up the grill poolside, or simply listen to the wind rustle the greenery above.
Out on a limb
Though serene, this home is not far from points of culture and commerce, most notably The Getty Center collection and the Brentwood Village shopping district.
