This home in Malibu makes the most of its surroundings, and then some. The circular post-and-beam, high up in the Santa Monica Mountains, was built atop a rock formation and incorporates a number of native boulders into its indoor-outdoor design. The lofted setup also allows for some pretty spectacular views: 360 degrees of rugged mountain peaks and ocean, to be specific.
