Rafe Judkins, a contestant on the 11th-season “Survivor” who went on to write and produce for “Chuck” and “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and is queued up to write and produce the “Wheel of Time” TV series based on Robert Jordan’s fantasy novels, has dropped slightly more than $1.12 million for a secluded 1970s micro-compound in the mountaintop community of Topanga, Calif.
The wood-clad and unusually aubergine-colored 1970s architectural, set high on a sloping lot about 12 minutes by car above Malibu, where it’s tucked behind a wall of foliage and licked by cool ocean breezes, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in just over 1,200 square feet over three floors. The airy, open-plan living space features rustic and well-worn tongue-and-groove wood floors, an exposed wood cathedral ceiling over the living room, a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining area that open out to a broad deck with uninterrupted views over the rugged expanse of Topanga State Park and a compact, galley-style kitchen upgraded with a high-end commercial-style range and rust-colored granite countertops.
One of the two bedrooms is a spacious loft that’s open to the living room below and has a small balcony, while the second bedroom sits like a crow’s nest on the third floor with an exposed-wood vaulted ceiling, clerestory windows and a bird’s-eye canyon view. Additional living space is provided in an also aubergine-colored detached guesthouse built in the same architectural style with a vaulted ceiling, a bathroom, a kitchenette, a pint-size private deck with a canyon overlook and a ladder-accessed lofted sleeping area.
