A Tuscan farmhouse in a contemporary idiom, this “House of Twelve Gardens” was designed by architects Moore Ruble Yudell with interior designer Richard Brayton to create an interplay between gardens functioning as outdoor rooms and the indoor spaces they compliment. The arrangement of pavilions, towers, terraces and pergolas shelters family areas at its heart, and reaches out to embrace a landscape of olive groves and views of Santa Ynez Canyon and Topanga State Park. Past a double height entrance hall are a country-style living room with a Brazilian cherry wood floor and spruce ceiling battens, limestone hearths and sliding mahogany shutters. 6 bedrooms, 8 baths plus maids quarters, guest bedroom, 2 offices, library/wine room, guest house, and 3-car garage. Approximately three-quarters of an acre plus a 2.36-acre landscape easement with hundreds of olive trees.
