Topanga Canyon is a hippie/bohemian enclave in the Santa Monica Mountains where I call home. For many years it has served as a retreat for artists, musicians, actors and the like looking to escape the city thanks to it’s close proximity to Los Angeles while still being geographically isolated enough to find that sense of peace.
Creative souls are drawn to its energy and charm so it is no wonder that Topanga Canyon has been a muse for so many. Neil Young recorded “After the Gold Rush” in the basement of his Topanga home while the Topanga Corral (no longer in existence) inspired Jim Morrison to write “Roadhouse Blues”.
I recently had the honor of shooting several looks in a truly stunning Topanga property on 2025 Tuna Canyon. The homes up here are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen but this listing is truly incredible (and I’ve been a realtor in Topanga for several years so I’ve seen many!).
Listed for $1,675,000, this 70s home is perched high on the hill with views of the canyon. The open concept living room has a high-pitched ceiling and a cozy wood-burning fireplace that flows into a truly stunning kitchen. Numerous decks and patios as well as outbuildings for guests surround the home, in addition to a summer sleeping porch for those warm nights. The yellow bathroom is something to behold with floor-to-ceiling windows allowing you views of the canyon while you bathe (perfect for spying on the local wildlife – owls, deer, coyotes, bobcats and rabbits can all been seen if you have a good eye). This home is the quintessential 70s Topanga dream pad and truly a work of art. All photos are by Claire Bryett Photography.
