Now available for only the 2nd time in its history and seeking its next stewards - The iconic Temple in the Trees designed by architect Barry Gittleson, AIA and built by hand by Bodhi Tree Bookstore co-founder Stan Madson, c. 1979. Surrounded by majestic mature oaks and adjacent to an active wildlife corridor, this mini compound in Laurel Canyon is comprised of a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home and an an additional mid-century bungalow (with separate address, garage and parking) on 3 lots, totaling over 11,000sf of land. Exquisite main house features open central atrium, soaring ceilings, original Douglas fir cabinetry (all built by the original owner on site), hand hewn pine staircases, clerestory windows that provide light to illuminate and elevate the fine craftsmanship throughout and more magic than you can calculate - with an exquisitely sited deck off the main living space that looks out over the trees in to the heart of nature and into the canyon below. The vintage 1953 bungalow below, features one bedroom, an office, sitting room, kitchen and shaded outdoor patio. A rare opportunity to inhabit a treasured and extraordinary property.
