Home of the Week: Modern Treehouse Living in La Cañada

Set beneath a lush canopy of trees in the upper Deodar area of La Cañada Flintridge, this two-story architectural resembles that of a sophisticated treehouse, boasting verdant seclusion while in close proximity to Earl Canyon and Palm Crest Elementary. Replete with rich, soulful details and contemporary updates to satiate modern living, this 4-bedroom and 3-bath home is the ultimate retreat. Located at 5208 Palm Drive, the property is listed with La Cañada Flintridge Founding Partner Carey Haynes and offered at $1,598,000.


Enter through a pergola-shaded gate and follow a meandering stone pathway to the home’s threshold, enveloped by gardens and mature trees. Upon opening the bold red front door, you will feel immediately captivated by vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and hardwood floors—a modern take on mountain architecture.


From the foyer, continue onward into the home’s impressive great room, accented by a grand granite cobble fireplace and French doors that open to both the front of the property and expansive back terrace. Featuring a light white aesthetic to complement the wooden vaulted ceiling, this living space encapsulates rustic yet refined California living.


The floor plan thus flows into the formal dining room and chef’s kitchen, adjoined by an additional seating area that opens to the terrace, where large tree trunks are beautifully integrated into the paneled deck.


Ascend the wooden staircase to the second story, complete with skylights that inundate the entirety of the home with a wealth of sunlight. Here, the master suite, featuring a large bath, neighbors another bedroom, encompassed by windows. Upon the first story, two additional bedrooms showcase French doors that lead to the outdoor terrace.


While the 2,969-square-foot interior offers a myriad of vast living spaces, the home sits upon a far-reaching lot with boundless outdoor spaces to both relax and entertain. Situated on varying levels, each wooden terrace and brick deck presents its own unique experience. Whether you wish to read beneath towering trees or host a dinner party from the elevated barbecue and seating area, the options are seemingly limitless.


Cloistered by greenery, this inspired architectural affords residents a life lived in harmony with nature. Set high above the freeway and Foothill Boulevard, yet moments from La Cañada’s premier attractions, this home transcends common California living.
