IMPROVED PRICE. Welcome to “Cedarhawke”, an ARTISTS RETREAT perched on an overlook with unparalleled views of the L.A. city lights and the canyons of Sierra Madre. Crafted predominantly of wood and glass, it was designed by R. Nilsen in a style reminiscent of the architecture of Sea Ranch in Northern California. This home is the manifestation of a love story that started in the late 1940’s when two high school sweethearts would park on this very spot, gaze at the stars and plan their future. They married and raised two children. In 1976, the now empty-nesters were able to purchase the property and build their dream home. Not only does this house have a name, it inspired a song: “Cedarhawke Rag” written by Vincent Matthew Johnson, a family friend and quite famous composer of ragtime tunes. The heart of this home is a spacious living area with a Swedish style fireplace and a loft-like openness. The expansive glass walls invite the nature of the canyon to become part of the interior. This open-concept layout seamlessly merges the living, dining and kitchen areas. The primary, en-suite bedroom is a tranquil retreat with unique vantage points of the surrounding canyon where you can wake up to the gentle embrace of the sunrise filtering through the windows and fall asleep under a canopy of stars. The second bedroom offers its own stunning views. For the creative soul, a spiral staircase leads to an artist studio bathed in natural light. This inspiring space provides the perfect sanctuary for bringing the imagination to life, surrounded by the serene beauty of the natural environment. This lovely aerie could also be used as a third bedroom. Car enthusiasts and collectors will appreciate the spacious, 5-car garage. There is also an attached workshop perfect for tinkering and crafting with a ¾ bath. Step outside onto one of the expansive decks, where the boundaries between indoors and outdoors continue to blur. The gentle rustling of leaves creates a soothing symphony as you enjoy al fresco dining, relaxation or stargazing. This rustic, contemporary haven offers a truly unique living experience. Every corner of this home reflects thoughtful design and impeccable craftsmanship. Make this stunning retreat your own!
