Perched on a promontory among the trees in Glenoaks Canyon, this unique chalet-style home with a Scandinavian flair is at the end of a very secluded street, just steps away from miles of hiking trails. Thanks to its “treehouse vibe,” no other homes are visible from inside the house – only trees.
This private, gated, architectural, celebrity sanctuary at 360 Edwards Place is on the market for the second time ever, priced at $2,499,000. Leaving city life has become a dream for many, however, this unique three-lot property offers all the beauty and peace of rural hill living within a short distance of the necessities of Hollywood life.
