The Roberts Ranch House...or remains

Here's something different...these are the remains of a historic house in Malibu. The house was originally built in 1952 and designed by Paul Williams, a famous African American architect (the first certified African American architect west of the Mississippi). The house burned down in a fire in 1982, but the ruins are still accessible through a trail in Solstice Canyon off of the Pacific Coast Highway. It provides an interesting opportunity to walk through the floor plan of a once spectacular, privately-owned home. The scenery is fantastic, especially the waterfall!
