• 537 West Rustic Road , Santa Monica CA, 90402

Shangri La in Rustic Canyon is reached by a short stroll up a country lane from West Rustic Road. The home was originally built as a one-room house by a pioneer, high on the hillside in 1924. In the 1930s Brett Weston purchased it installing a dark room for his father, Edward Weston the world famous photographer. The house was enlarged and improved in the 1960s and then again by the current owners. This treehouse evokes a Northern California atmosphere and has influenced the artists who have resided there. The house offers two, or potential up to four bedrooms, two of which are currently used as a wood workshop and separate art studio. The main bedroom, kitchen and two bathrooms all embrace verdant views of many trees and afford a sense of serene privacy. The living room, with its high wooden clad ceilings, hardwood floors and fireplace embodies an ambience of comfort and peace. The property is located in close proximity to State Beach, Canyon Elementary, Rustic Canyon Recreation Center and a short drive to the Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica.
