River rock accents and shingle siding lend a pastoral touch to this relaxed residence, set among mature trees on more than a third of an acre in Santa Monica’s Rustic Canyon. Natural light flows freely through skylights, walls of glass and a clerestory roof design. Among the versatile spaces is a brick-lined living room and a great room with a distinctive fireplace.
