Secluded 1920s retreat in Rustic Canyon seeks $2M

By Bianca Barragan

This 1924 dwelling, surrounded by trees and fronted by a bridge over Rustic Canyon Creek, doesn’t just look and feel like an artist’s retreat. It actually was one.

In the 1940s, author Christopher Isherwood reportedly took up residence at the two-story home. Isherwood lived in a number of locations in Rustic Canyon and nearby Santa Monica before his death in 1986, and his writing about the canyon featured in the novel A Single Man, which was adapted into a movie.

As the listing notes, the residence is a peaceful hideaway with “easy access to coveted outdoor areas” and “provid[es] the feeling of privacy and remoteness.”

The first floor holds a family room and kitchen ringed in French doors that open out onto a wall of trees, including an old sycamore. The two bedrooms can be found upstairs, where there is also a balcony and a lone bathroom. Other features include hardwood floors, wood beams, and multiple French doors.
