A Tree House–Like Dwelling Near the Coastline Seeks $3.89M in Santa Monica, CA

By Kathryn M.

The thoughtfully renovated residence was designed in 1981 by local architect Thane Roberts.

One of the earliest homes designed by Santa Monica–based architect Thane Roberts is up for grabs. The celebrated architect is known for his adventurous nature: After embarking on a nine-year, 30,000-mile sailing trip throughout the Pacific Ocean, he returned to Santa Monica and developed a philosophy called “evo-tecture,” which prioritizes ecologically minded residential designs.
