A couple miles down the road from Topanga’s landmark Inn of the Seventh Ray, you’ll find this angular residence, which was built in 1976. Unlike most traditional A-frames, this one was blessed with a set of wings—guess you could call it a “Flying-A.”

Per the listing, the 1,882-square-foot house has three bedrooms and three updated baths. Interior features include high ceilings, double-pane windows offering stunning views, wood floors, stainless steel appliances, and a tankless water heater.

The 18,521-square-foot property also contains multiple decks and patios, a swimming pool with spa, and a detached guesthouse/studio.

UPDATE: Asking price is NOW $1.8 million.
