Tucked in a cul-de-sac in an affluent residential neighborhood, the house looks no different than the rows of bungalows and single-family homes around it. But inside, lives are being repaired in a caring and nurturing environment that most of the residents have never known in their lives. It's called Laurel House, the only privately funded shelter for runaway teens in Orange County.

Actor Todd Stashwick has sold his Laurel Canyon house for $816,000, public records show. The original property, built in 1922, was much smaller than the 2,682-square-foot home today. Earlier owners redesigned and expanded the property to its three-bedroom, 31/2 -bathroom configuration. The house includes a double-height dining room, a family room with wood-burning fireplace and a master suite with a fireplace and balcony. The grounds have a motorized rock-bed stream, a children's playhouse and a 200-year-old oak tree.

For nearly 20 years they stood as the beacon of bad for commuters winding their way through the mountains between Studio City and Hollywood. Two hulking, partially built houses clung precariously to the nearly vertical hillside off a fire road at the top of Laurel Canyon. They were the first things that motorists saw as they left the San Fernando Valley and crossed Mulholland Drive.

Wedemeyer said police closed the Orange County home as a matter of routine during the investigation. He said no one has been arrested or charged.

When a child dies, the mourners talk about how a short life is purposeful--how even the very young can complete a mission on Earth. This belief, embraced during the memorial service for their little girl on April 24, 1991, steers the lives of James and Nancy Chuda. The remembrance was held in the stunning, sunlight-bathed house that Jim, a well-known environmental architect, built four years ago for his family in Laurel Canyon.
