If you owned this property, I guarantee no one would ever walk into the house for their first time and not say “wow”. Sure, the Hollywood pedigree of being Rock Hudson’s little hideaway in the hills is a great storyline. But the reason that he loved the place is the same reason you will love it. First, it’s a timeless post-and-beam structure design by Ralph Bowerman and features walls of glass, perfect for taking in the views of the valley. Secondly it’s situated at the top a long private drive and totally surrounded by a lush gardens, creating a totally private private and romantic setting.

Stairs leading up to the home.

In addition to the long driveway, the house is situated at the top of a flight of stairs (accessed via an electronically locked gate), all contributing to the home’s privacy.

The lines and colors of the home are timeless and beautiful.

Main living area of the home.

The original bones of the house are all in tact, but it also features a beautifully updated kitchen and bath. The concrete floors contribute to the home’s cool – literally and figuratively.

Living room


With only 1008 square feet, the home is not big. But it is certainly spacious, thanks in part to windows on every side, providing fantastic light and incredible views.

The main living area comprises the living room, dining room and kitchen in an open concept surrounded on all sides by windows and opening up to the outdoor spaces with a large patio, plunge pool, and expansive views.

Although the home is small, it’s on a large lot and the outdoor spaces are used to their fullest potential, and done so in a very tasteful and cozy way.
