New to the market is this Mandeville Canyon architectural property. Designed by Barton Phelps FAIA in 1993, the home features three bedrooms and three bathrooms. This Brentwood home highlights treetop and canyon views with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Cedar and redwood beams frame the home to create the A-frame structure. Phelps said of the project, "Our client’s sweet Scandinavian dream of a homesteader’s log cabin takes hold of this panoramic canyon perch high in the Santa Monica Mountains to create a compact, sustainable home infused with nuanced drama."

Phelps is an advocate of architecture education, having taught at UCLA where he was Assistant Dean to the Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Planning. He collaborated with Frank Gehry & Associates on architectural preservation issues throughout the city and has won numerous achievements in his field of work.
