Branching out in Mount Washington

Decking built around mature trees creates a feeling of living in a tree house at this recently renovated home in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Los Angeles. Designed by local firm KeltnerCo, the house has been outfitted with dark Calacatta marble countertops in the kitchen and a three-sided fireplace in the living room. A cedar soaking tub and a detached studio are among new additions to the grounds.
