Stunning Secluded Artist's Compound

Peace.  Privacy.  Space.  The solace and beauty of an Architectural statement at one with nature.  Stunning Artist’s compound, spread over half an acre of land, includes a detached studio/workroom; finished garage/studio with roll-up door, skylights, and kiln room; and a loft/office with four workstations.  A loft third bedroom, plus flex space for a wine cellar, playroom or gym, all create an inspiring environment with room to live, work and play.

Designed by renowned artist Sterling Ruby with a team of SCI-ARC graduates, the structural forms play with geometry and weight, lightness and dark, striking a vibrant stance grounded in nature, in perfect balance with the surrounding elements of earth, greenery, wood and sky. 

Interior spaces bring nature indoors organically through over-sized windows, glass doors and multiple skylights. Extensive use of natural pine paneling and hardwood floors warm the man-made environment, juxtaposed by a cement-block fireplace in the soaring double-height living area.  Crisp modern white baths and kitchen with cement floors offer a clean antidote to the cacophony of modern life.  Chef’s will love the Thermador 6-burner stove and Liebherr refrigerator with two freezer drawers.  On warm summer nights a soak in the private outdoor tub/shower room will make you feel you’re in Muir Woods.

Fully fenced Oak-studded property provides ample room to spread out - spacious gathering area with playhouse, an expansive wildland garden with view deck for sunset cocktails overlooking the hills and canyon, a friendly patio for al fresco dining.  Peacocks, racoons, opossum and more roam the area.  For the future, there are existing plans for a pool. 

Comprehensive 2009 rebuild; new mechanical systems, including fire sprinklers in each building.  Sunland is an up and coming creative community, away from the hustle of the city, yet only 30 minutes’ drive to DTLA Arts District, 20 minutes to Silverlake and Los Feliz.
