I pass by this house often on our daily walk with the twins and have always wondered what it must be like on the inside. Well, last week I got a chance to check it out. What surprised me was how spacious it really was. From the street it looks fairly unassuming given its set back and single level structure. Once you walk in though the high-beamed ceilings and open living area with access to the backyard give it a large voluminous vibe.
The house built in 1958 is a 6 bedroom, 4 bath house and sits on an 8,460 square foot lot. (more…)

‘The Fortress’ aka “King of the Hill’ is back on the market. Truly a one of a kind architectural designed by award winning architect David Lawrence Gray, AIA, the home has generated its fair share of controversy over the years. The home was originally built in 1996 for a German businessman named Peter Schindler and per the architect’s website it was built to address the clients desire for ‘privacy, rest and repose’ as well as serve as a entertainment venue to showcase the client’s extensive art collection. The result was a ‘modern acropolis’ with separate buildings joined by a large central art gallery that serves as the hub.
The home was last sold in Dec 2008 to DJ and producer Val Kolton who bought it from Rockstar Energy Drink founder Russ Weiner for $8M down from its original list price at the time of $14.995M. Weiner himself purchased the property in March of 2004 for $6.1M. (more…)

So I’m in love with this house. Popularly known as the Arrowhead Drive Architectural, this house has been off and on the market since early 2010 when it was first listed for a hefty price tag of 12M. Owned by fashion exec Arif Noormohamed, it has been since then been reduced to the current list price of $10.8M.
So what’s great about it? The extraordinary views of the lake, the simplicity of the structure, the retractable walls of glass, the structural details, indoor-outdoor flow…I could go on. Designed by Jeffrey & Rochelle Mills of Mills Studio the house was completed in 2007 and is ‘made up of two unique glass and steel boxes perched in and cantilevered from a series of exposed poured concrete walls. A soaring two-story entry features a stunning use of steel with a glass floor bridge that cantilevers out over the swimming/reflecting pool below and out to the lake itself.’ (more…)
