LM Pagano, the celebrity interior designer whose clientele includes Johnny Depp and Nicolas Cage, has put her canyon compound in Topanga on the market for $4.5 million.

Entered through custom sculptural gates, the six-acre property is perched on a crest with sweeping ocean and canyon views. At the center sits a cubist-style home. True to its style, the house comprises a series of squares stacked together on a sloping lot.

Bohemian vibes abound in the split-level floor plan, which boasts glass, marble, polished concrete and plenty of hardwood.

Three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms are spread across 3,640 square feet, including two master suites with their own private balconies.

Gardens and 40 fruit trees dot the scenic landscape outside, where the house descends to an infinity-edge pool and grassy yard. On the other end, a pool house adds a fireplace and outdoor shower.

The canyon property also includes trails, a bridge over a seasonal brook and a detached guesthouse with a private deck.

Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen of Compass and Nancy Nelms of Snyder Sutton Real Estate hold the listing.
