Time to explore
Up in the mountains of the Pacific Palisades, Villa Woods Place feels far from the bustling city. Inside is all sweet shades and playful patterns, and wide sliding doors lead out to a verdant garden. The sitting room is gentle in style – midcentury modern pieces complement shapely rugs and contemporary artworks – and the airy kitchen with its curious collection of coffee cups is nearby. But with a wraparound, sunny deck, you might spend most of your time outdoors. There are pause-worthy succulents and a shimmering pool, and the zig-zagging trails of Will Rogers State Park are close by, too.
Taking the lead
Your hosts are originally from Britain, but enjoy living in LA with their two sons. They appreciate their home’s scenic location, and when they’re not tending to their garden, they’re likely hiking or entertaining friends.
##Natural way With numerous dining spots, you’ve a choice between the separate dining room framed with bookshelves, or the garden’s workbench-inspired table beneath the woven canopy. The second sitting room is bright with lofted ceilings and a wall-to-wall map of Earth, while its generous corner sofa is well-suited for an evening in. On the same level are five characterful bedrooms, including a navy bunk bedroom, a smart twin filled with books and trophies, and a master suite with a four-poster bed. Though you could opt for the garden’s lofted treehouse – the perfect rest stop to watch your children play on the soccer field.
