Its striking geodesic dome shape makes this modern home in Topanga a unique go-to location for photo and video shoots.
Set back from the street in Topanga’s sylvan community, 20201 Croydon Ln sits on roughly one-third of an acre of tree-filled grounds—with succulents, swings, plenty of room for outdoor entertaining, a guest house, a large art studio, and a separate workshop with a secret room.
Built in 1974, the home could easily be described as a bohemian nod to R. Buckminster Fuller, a prolific architect and engineer who popularized the widely known geodesic dome.
Entering through a unique pointed-shaped door, the well-lit interior holds three bedrooms, a full bathroom, and two half bathrooms. Features include high planked ceilings, wide panels of triangular windows, and a freestanding, one-of-a-kind steampunk fireplace in the living room.
Its unique quality has been featured in Rolling Stone, Vogue, Playboy, and Elle, along with videos for Kesha, Little Big Town, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. Anthropologie, Free People, and Neiman Marcus have featured the home in their ads.
Nancy Nelms lists the geodesic dome home for $1.29 million.
