A bit over-dressed but the stonework is an interesting variation, slip-form with rubble, experts?

Board-formed, perhaps; I don't see evidence of slip-forming. That would be a way to make walls or other features which did not taper as they rose.

The distribution of smallish stones gives a unique flavor to the masonry. I like the slender chimney snaking its way up through the roof framing. Another characteristic is the fin walls which project outward from the spaces.

Given its location, an acre lot in the mountains north of Malibu, the $4.8M is reasonable.
