This renovated lodge-inspired house preserves the star-studded legacy of the original structure. First built for the 1923 silent movie “The Courtship of Miles Standish”, the home was formerly owned by Daryl Hannah. The existing owners commissioned architect Chris Peck, interior designer Lisa Strong, builder Eric Dobkin and landscape architect Samantha Gore to dream up a beautiful 6,195-square-foot estate expansion and renovation.
The house, currently listed for sale, is tucked amidst the trees of the iconic Uplifters Ranch neighborhood of Rustic Canyon, and offers privacy to its occupants. In 2012, current owners Marla and Larry Butler commissioned a team of designers to renovate the cabin into a larger building that would preserve as much of the original materials as possible. Stones from the original cabin were reused, while naturally fallen lodge pole pine timber from Montana dominates most of the exterior and interior.
An open-plan kitchen and dining room feature double-case windows and bi-fold doors that offer spectacular views of the surrounding nature. A large terrace with a plunge pool and stone walkways functions as an outdoor entertaining area. Original furniture, fixtures and windows strengthen the connection to the past.
