Rustic Canyon home is a natural beauty

Jill Soffer and Greg Adler's Rustic Canyon home in Santa Monica was designed with sustainability and outdoor activity in mind. Two live-work structures on the property are linked by a courtyard with a turtle pond, lap pool, barbecue and seating area, basketball court and drought-tolerant landscaping. The main building houses the blended family, including sons Jacob and Gabriel, as well as an exercise room and home builder Adler's office. The guesthouse has a rec room, guest rooms and offices for Jill Soffer Design. Solar hot water and photovoltaic panels and other energy-efficient features helped earn the house a LEED silver certification. --Anne Colby
