Actress Marta Kristen sells one-of-a-kind Santa Monica treehouse

A lot more than wood and nails went into this offbeat Santa Monica treehouse. The rustic retreat owned by “Lost in Space” actress Marta Kristen has sold for $2.795 million, records show.

Built by architect Thane Roberts, the three-bedroom house is a vibrant mix of wood and other natural materials flanked by lush gardens. Picture windows and clerestories bring in leafy views, and skylights punctuate vaulted ceilings throughout the 2,369-square-foot interior.

The first floor holds a handful of cabin-like living spaces, such as a living room with a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace and a kitchen splashed with teal tile. Upstairs are two bedroom suites, including a master with a sitting room, office and deck.

From there, a third-level loft serves as an artist’s studio and expands to a covered lanai with canyon views. A private brick patio rounds out the landscaped grounds.

Born in Norway, Kristen moved to Los Angeles with her family in the late ’50s and began starring in the sci-fi series “Lost in Space” a few years later. Her film credits include “Beach Blanket Bingo,” “Terminal Island” and “Battle Beyond the Stars.”

She first listed the home for $3.595 million last year, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
