The Red House on Rivas
0 Sqft - 919 Rivas Canyon Rd, Pacific Palisades, California 90272
Nestled under a canopy of majestic, old oak and sycamore trees on just over an acre of land, rests a vestige of Rivas Canyon’s storied past. Originally built in 1940 by a renowned furniture maker and subsequently owned by notable celebrities, the home has been recently preserved and restored with meticulous attention to its history and inspiration. Its understated elegance and charm is complemented by the private, park like grounds, magical gardens and meandering paths through oak, citrus, and blossoming trees. The sensual experience of this spirited, sylvan setting provides an inviting respite from the pace of the nearby city.
The rooms are distinguished by handcrafted wood detail and paneling, wood floors, and walls of windows overlooking the lush setting. The kitchen has a center island, cathedral ceilings and a custom-made glass and steel door opening to the expansive patio with fire pit and pergola covered dining area. The private spa looks out on the generous lawn area with a privacy hedge of towering poplar trees. A pathway leads you through the wooded landscape with spots for play, respite and reflection to a private, gated access to the street above, only blocks to Caruso’s soon to be completed Village Center.

Originally part of Will Rogers’ estate, Rivas Canyon once housed a row of simple cabins that were home to his stable hands. It is now an exclusive enclave accessed by a private road with direct access to the hiking trails of Temescal Canyon, Topanga and Will Rogers State Parks. Zoned for horses, Rivas Canyon is one of the few locations enabling horse enthusiasts to locally board and then ride their horses to the equestrian facilities at Will Rogers.
