MLS#: 11-563175 | 4bd, 2.5ba | 3,210 Sq ft (per mls)
Offered at $1,399,000
This is one of the better examples of flips we’ve seen in recent times. Located on a cul-de-sac in the desirable Ivanhoe School District, this home was last sold in July of this year for $873,000. We’ve put some ‘before’ below for comparison.
Originally built in 1981, the house features 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and sits on a 8,040 square foot lot. The older siding was stripped of the facade and replaced with Redwood siding and smooth stucco giving it a contemporary, clean vibe.
The lower level houses the living room, dining, kitchen and an office space. The house has an open flow and abundant light with 17′ high ceilings in the living room, opening onto a large spacious patio. (more…)

Offered at $10,800,000
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…)

So we’d blogged about Brad Pitt listing his Malibu home for 13.75M. At the time, there was only one fairly lackluster picture of his digs available. Recently some more were posted on the MLS, which are attached below for your viewing pleasure. Gorgeous property with incredible ocean views.

Yesterday was a good one for open houses. New on the market is John Lautner’s Polin House currently owned by Brent Bolthouse. John Lautner is one the 20th century’s important contemporary American architects who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright. His work was concerned with the relationship of the human being to space and of space to nature. “Shelter,” he said, “is the most basic human need.”
The Polin House is situated across and shares a private driveway with the Jacobsen residence, another one of Lautner’s creations. Structurally the house is similar to the Jacobson residence and the Carling House with the horizontal hexagonal steel frame supported on three tapered steel trusses. Since the walls are not load bearing it provides for a flexible interior space.
The house last exchanged hands in 2004 at which point it was sold in near original condition. Since then significant updates have been done to the home, while maintaining the integrity of Lautner’s work. The Polin House is modest in size at 1342 square feet and comprises of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. At the entry level is a guest suite with a bathroom and laundry. Steps leads up to the main house with an expansive living room with polished concrete floors, fireplace and sweeping views of the city. (more…)
