Saddle Peak House, in Topanga, California, draws inspiration from and in turn influences its coastal mountain range environs using an organic, horizontal silhouette, a raw concrete facade, and interiors that call back the ‘30s.

The two-level, four-bedroom rental house features exquisite geometrical aesthetics and define lines. Its mid-century style shouldn’t work with its natural surroundings. However, through some clever alchemy of architecture, the presentation evinces a delicate sensibility.

Award-winning firm Sant Architects designed this one. And good news — you can rent it through Boutique Homes or Airbnb.

The Saddle Peak House features a lot of iron beams, concrete slabs, wood, and glass. As a result, you get a modern interpretation of earthly sentiments, a refined experiment on the interplay of texture, volume, balance, and light. You’ll see broad walls that fuse the interiors with ample illumination. The windows provide awe-striking panoramic views of the ocean, mountains, and nearby Catalina Island.

On the upper level, you’ll find the main living area overlooking the pool and gardens. Moreover, you’ll see a smart, slide-away fireplace, plus a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area, to boot. In addition, you’ll spot oversize slide-away doors that loosen the space. They usher you toward different perspectives and angles of the entire space.

Two of the three bedrooms reside on the upper level, while the master bedroom rests on the level below. Splashes of blue, red, purple, and yellow prevent the space from looking to monochromatic. In other words, these are smart choices all around, from the Hans Wegner furniture to the outdoor feel the dwelling achieves with flying colors. More pictures of the Saddle Peak House below.
