TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie is hoping to hoof it away from his Los Angeles-area home with $6.999 million in his pocket. The philanthropic “One for One” businessman picked up the Topanga mansion about six years ago for roughly $3 million.
An idyllic rustic retreat, the 6,000-square-foot home and its grounds make for the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of L.A. and its swaths of contemporary styling. Set on one acre of wooded land, the four-bedroom home’s design highlights natural elements with plenty of wood throughout, presenting a cohesive living style between home and lot.
The open-concept main living space is filled with light from large windows, which contrasts nicely with the wooden beams in the kitchen and the dark, distressed cabinetry in the kitchen. Upstairs, the master suite is a true sanctuary: it’s generously proportioned for privacy and breathing room, with vaulted and beamed ceilings, and a large bathroom.
The residence also features a spacious second-story terrace and a wraparound deck for enjoying views of the lush hillside. A detached two-bedroom guesthouse complete with a gym and an office, and a detached sauna are also part and parcel of the property.
