Every single room of this Los Angeles property, designed by Sebastian Mariscal, has a private courtyard – screened by 40-ft pine and oak trees.
The Venice home’s minimal timber-clad exterior emphasizes the property’s outdoor space, framed by huge sliding doors. No matter where you are in the house, there’s immediate access into the pebbly, cactus-planted garden – and the upstairs bedrooms even have roof gardens.
According to Mariscal, the four-bedroom property – listed with The Value of Architecture for $3.695m – has been designed to hide behind its line of trees, meaning it cannot be spied from the street. And the home is just as serene from the inside where stripped back interiors feature dark wood panelling and stone floors.
