At a glance, this renovated midcentury home appears to have a 52-acre backyard. But the yard isn't that big. The house, on an 11,875-square-foot lot, backs up to a preserve. The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy formally dedicated the land in 2004 as the Briar Summit Open Space Preserve. Briar Summit also is the name of an enclave next to the preserve. In 1957, developer Jack Okean purchased 19 lots in the tract, which he sold for development.

"We tend to think of Los Angeles as a homogenous mess, but it's really a distinct city with many different sections."

But by the time the Sacramento rally in opposition to California's new automobile emission standards ("Smog Check II") was over and the supporters of the law had held their own press conference, one thing was clear: Keeping a car on the road is going to become more expensive.
