A Nature-Focused, Reimagined Home in Mandeville Canyon Lists for $4.7M

Up in Brentwood’s tranquil Mandeville Canyon, a new listing soaks in the views. This hillside escape was once a midcentury-style 1950s ranch, but has been completely reimagined and expanded by residential developer Jordan Bakva and interior designer Tatum Kendrick. The masterfully crafted abode highlights nature at every turn and just hit the market asking $4.699 million.

Dubbed The Ridge, this single-story home with 3,807-square-feet of interior space is set up perfectly for California living. Bakva and Kendrick’s vision for the project was simple: Create a home with wellness-driven design. That focus is clear, from the open-air atrium in the center of the abode to the sweeping walls of glass that make nature the star.

Tatum Kendrick says of the design, “It feels easy and comfortable but with an honesty of materials and a strong connection to nature. I also wanted to create a home that would truly nourish its owners so we chose to install a saltwater pool, steam room and hand-built French range rather than the typical marble feature walls or built-in bars that you often see in LA homes.”

Thoughtfully sourced, the home’s materials are organic, nature-inspired, and even represent countries around the world. Open spaces boast Parisian blackened steel doors, oversized brass hardware from Mexico, and then Arabascato Italian marble in the dreamy kitchen.

Wandering out into the sunshine, native California plants and drought-resistant landscaping accompany the outdoor kitchen, pool, and spa. Though a cannonball may disturb some of the home’s tranquility, there’s no doubt this pad is meant for glam entertaining and fun as well.

Offering five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and endless allure, this one-of-a-kind spread will make someone very happy. Nick Sandler, Bennett Hirsch, and Santiago Arana of The Agency have the listing.
