Designed by Ellis David Gelman, this three-bedroom residence is nestled in the heart of the wine country.

In Agoura Hills, California, about a 45-minute drive from Los Angeles, is a striking contemporary home surrounded by gardens. Built in 2006, the three-bedroom residence was designed by Ellis David Gelman, the acclaimed architect behind the futuristic Malibu Star Trek home.

The single-family residence is located on 0.81 acre pristine land in Agoura Hills, California, just 15 miles north of Malibu and 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. It was designed by Ellis David Gelman in 2006, and has been updated by its current owners.

Upon arrival, a generous entrance opens onto the main gathering spaces of the house. Slatted windows span the walls, illuminating the interior with natural light.

Pilots elevate the property one story above the ground, giving interiors views of Enchanto Lake and the Santa Monica Mountains. “I have never seen anything like this house in Los Angeles,” said listing agent Alan Taylor. “I spoke at length with Gelman about his inspiration, and he truly saw this as an opportunity to create a modern residence that offers thoughtful design and effortless function.”

In the living room, a long wet bar topped with black counters hugs the fireplace.

The dining room is located between the living room and the kitchen and offers direct access to the outside. Hardwood floors run through the interiors, contrasting with the home’s neutral color palette.

The accommodation measures over 3,000 square feet and includes spacious living areas connected by an open floor plan. Large windows envelop the exterior, allowing natural light to sweep inside.

Sliding glass doors extend the living and dining area to the exterior, where a large terrace offers a view of the landscaped park. A few steps from the main residence, two kitHAUS modules serve as auxiliary spaces for creative endeavors.

Wood accents continue in the open concept kitchen, which features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and casual bar seating.

Large windows make the home office another sunny spot for working and / or relaxing.

In total, the house offers three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and a daylighted office with custom built-in elements. The domain last sold in 2010 for $ 1,630,000, and is now back in the market for $ 2,699,000. Scroll forward to see more of the property.
