Bird Street Architectural, Estate of the Day
Our friends at Curbed LA picked a while back and it's too deliciously Los Angeles not to mention. Located in the coveted "bird streets" area in the Hollywood Hills, the listing says that is is an "entertainer's trophy home" but I don't know who the owner is. The contemporary home has three bedroom suites plus a separate two-bedroom guest suite with a private entrance. The home is angled for sparkling night views and has a large terrace and a wedge-shaped pool area carved into the hillside. The style is so contemporary and trendy as to be admirable but perhaps not quite livable (those polished concrete floors above look like an accident waiting to happen). The home includes an open kitchen, media room and a gym. It is listed at $12.85 million and more pictures are available at the property website (worth seeing especially for the trio of stylized mounted deer heads).
