Visionary light-filled Modern, wrapped in nature

Surrounded by trees, lawns and stunning views of the Santa Monica Mountains, this one-of-a-kind Agoura Hills residence is a functional work of art.

Raised a full story above the ground, its living spaces center on a light-washed great room with soaring ceilings. Huge walls of glass and high clerestory windows blend the surrounding foliage and mountain vistas with the setting.

Warm wood cabinetry and floors define the setting. An open kitchen near the dining area flows seamlessly into the expansive environment.

A striking fireplace punctuates the living room area, where sliding glass doors open to a mountain view patio.

Three sleekly luxurious bedroom suites and an office with expansive built-ins enjoy their own dramatic views. Outside, nearly an acre of landscaped grounds feature an agave garden and inviting lawns.

At the edge of the property, two kitHAUS modules offer private spaces for pursuing projects or simply replenishing the soul.

The home was designed in 2006 by architect Ellis David Gelman, who gained fame for another spectacular creation, the “Star Trek House” in Malibu, seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Gelman believes that “architects can create environments which responsibly provide for physical needs and at the same time increase the awareness and wonder of being.” In this Agoura Hills residence, he’s turned that idea into reality.

30047 Mulholland Highway, Agoura Hills is offered at $2,699,000 by Alan Taylor and Brian Vu.
