The home is sited on nearly a full acre of private and gated forest grounds. Lovely skylights in the formal entry set the stage for a home brimming with high style, sharp lines, wood, steel, and concrete accents, and an abundance of natural light from walls of glass that also seamlessly connect the entire home to the great outdoors.

The remarkable open concept living, dining, and kitchen areas feature concrete floors with radiant heat throughout. The incredible one-of-a-kind beamed ceiling is a true showstopper. Clerestory windows only add to the luxurious mid-century vibe.

The main living area has wonderful built-in library bookshelves, a gorgeous wood burning fireplace and heavenly views of the lush and enclosed backyard and pool.

The beautiful kitchen has easy outdoor access making for excellent al fresco entertaining. Recently rehabbed, the kitchen also has top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, polished concrete counters, backyard views, and custom cabinetry.

A second living room is the perfect spot for lounging and enjoys a second wood burning fireplace.

The divine master suite is exactly the space a mid-century modern aficionado would love waking up in. The suite has wonderful pool views and a wood beamed cantilevered ceiling.

The large room has both a sitting area and work space.

The unique en suite master bath is chic without being pretentious. The space has both a soaking tub and a glorious walk-in shower each in artful tile.

The walls of glass in the master suite slide open for easy late night dips or to let in a cool mountain breeze. Notice the property’s lush landscaping, an inspired mix of olive trees, succulents, and native plants.

The second and third bedrooms also have outdoor access through glass sliders, hillside views, and wood beamed ceilings.

The home’s second bath is sleek and simple.

The home feels downright visionary once you step outside and into the pool, grassy areas, and gardens.

The sense of living in nature is dramatically enhanced by the near total enclosure created by the hillside and mature plants and trees. It also helps to create an extraordinary sense of privacy and seclusion.

8956 Wonderland Park is a masterclass in the mid-century modern style. A Southern California oasis in an outstanding Los Angeles neighborhood.
