Originally built in 1955, this rare John Cooper Funk Mid-Century Modern home offers sweeping views from its 12 hilltop acres just minutes from downtown Los Altos. It was extensively renovated in the 2000’s by renowned architect Scott Johnson, bringing Koogle and his wife Pam Scott’s vision to life.

The house comprises 5,440 square-feet of living space including four bedrooms and four-and-one-half baths; the grounds include an organic farm – one that started as a modest quarter of an acre but grew into something much larger, featuring fruit trees, vegetables, and more.
Along with the landscaped grounds, the home’s exterior features a detached four-car garage and workshop, pool/guest house, and pool.
Starting in 2004, the home served as host to the couple’s “Salawn Series,” where they invited friends to give outdoor talks on the property’s grounds; notable guests included Tesla’s Elon Musk, chef Alice Waters, and ex-Grateful Dead drummer Micky Heart.
Koogle and his wife purchased the home shortly before they were married in in 2003; they are selling it after 14 years of ownership.
