Located on the western edge of San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County, near Calabasas, this tony town is known for being scaled-down, secure, and a magnet for celebrities.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, the rapper Drake, Miley Cyrus, the Weeknd, and actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith own homes here.

“What makes Hidden Hills attractive for so many celebrities is the fact that it is a small, gated community with only 2,000 residents,” says George Penner, CEO of Deasy Penner Podley.

The town is small, but punches way above its weight when it comes to home values. With just 35 homes for sale, which range in price from $1.8 million to $27.5 million, the median list price for a home in Hidden Hills is a jaw-dropping $6.4 million.

This 1966 post-and-beam residence offers a peaceful haven in California’s wooded Malibu Hills.

Designed by Malibu architect Douglas Rucker, the Calabasas property – on the market with Deasy/Penner for $1.695m – is an exercise in classic mid-century design, with timber slatted ceilings, exposed beams and built-in cabinetry.

Set over 2254 sq m, the three bedroom Modernist home has been designed around its environment, with trees puncturing its decking, and in one spot, even snaking through the eaves.

You may not recognize his name, but you’ve seen his work. Architect Dan Meis, known for designing modern stadiums and sports arenas including Staples Center, has sold his home in Calabasas for $2.05 million.

Opening to oaks and mature trees, the glass-walled house was renovated by Meis during his ownership. He incorporated new materials while maintaining the 1970s Midcentury Modern vibe of the post-and-beam house, which was designed by Malibu-based architect Douglas Rucker.

The Calabasas home of Staples Center architect Dan Meis is far removed from the sports and entertainment stadiums he is known to design. But the architect is looking for a new venue.

Meis recently listed the warm, 2,986-square-foot home on Cold Canyon Road with an asking price $2.5 million, Curbed reported.

Located in the Monte Nido neighborhood, the post and beam home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two indoor fireplaces, an outdoor deck and an art studio with its own entrance. Permits have already been secured for a hillside swimming pool and guest house on the property, according to the listing.

Meis purchased the home in 2015 for $1.9 million, property records show. He renovated the property extensively but preserved the original design by architect Douglas Rucker.

Meis, the founder of Meis architects, led the design of stadiums including Seattle’s Safeco Field, Cincinnati’s Paul Brown Stadium and Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.

Tucked into Calabasas’s Monte Nido neighborhood, this lovely, circa-1970s post and beam residence blends into the native oak trees that surround it. Designed by Malibu architect Douglas Rucker, it was recently renovated by Staples Center architect Dan Meis, who is also the current owner.

The single-story house employs walls of glass, skylights, and clerestory windows to bring the outdoors in. The wood-heavy interiors plus the tree grove views give the house a very cabin-like feel, but updates keep things fresh.
