The Ultimate in Indoor/Outdoor Living

Steel and glass are the primary materials listed for the Barton Myers–designed house at 770 Ladera Lane, but the ones that first come to mind are light and air. When the big garage doors are opened all the way up, you’re as much outside as in. The effect is impossibly striking, as if you’ve wandered into a magazine spread.


Bedrooms: Three.
Bathrooms: Three full, one half.
Size/Acreage: 4,079 square feet / 1 acre.
Price: $7.5 million.
Last sold: N/A.
Listing agent:
 Vivienne Leebosh of Sotheby’s and Cristal Clarke of Berkshire Hathaway.


The house is well above street level, but the garage is up behind the house, so residents don’t have many stairs to contend with.

The main rooms are open-plan and high-ceilinged, with windows to the north showcasing the mountain backdrop. As seems to be Myers’s style, rooms in the rear are smaller and darker (a.k.a. cozier).

Which isn’t to say that there aren’t wonderful moments throughout.

Landscaping is drought-tolerant and attractive. Not shown in the listing photos: the guesthouse, which predates the main house and is in a more traditional style. It’d certainly do, though.

The only real negative to the design is that the pool is on the west side of the property, abutting Ladera. And the $7.5 million price is ambitious, considering a very similar Myers property sold for $6.5 million in 2017—and that was on 10 acres with sweeping ocean views. But all it takes is one person to fall in love with the house, which doesn’t seem out of the question.
