Property Description

Project Observation is a great fixer opportunity in the center of Topanga Canyon. Privately tucked back in the hillside on close to an acre of land in the highly desirable climate perfect Fernwood area with multiple rustic accessory buildings throughout: a main house, an office, a yurt, a cabin, a studio, a trailer and multiple storage areas. The comfortable main-house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with an inviting open floor plan which expands to big private decks and a large flagstone courtyard. Complete with a safe fire pit and raised bed gardens. Turn this into the perfect outdoor bbq area for friends and family… Meander through the natural pathways up to the large perched hillside yurt that once was used by Robert Downey Jr for his spiritual healing work. Or disappear up the rock ledge staircase which opens to a studio and a cabin with beautiful cross canyon views. This property has tons of potential and comes with plenty to work on. Live in the main house comfortably while you sort through the labors of love this land desperately needs. Notice of violation on title. Seller will carry (ask la for details). Property sold AS IS.
