House of the Day: Float Over Lake Hollywood
We're not sure we'd want to be visiting during a big earthquake, but this cutting-edge architectural home sure pushes our "like" buttons. Especially the floating dining room that is surrounded (literally) by stunning views as it protrudes from the main structure.
Listed at $10.8 million -- down from $12.5 million -- the five-bedroom home completed in 2007 and designed by Jeffrey and Rochelle Mills, features a large living room with walls of glass that fully retract; two family rooms; a gourmet state-of-the-art kitchen; private movie theater; bar area; gym and massage room.
The home is made of two unique glass and steel boxes perched in and cantilevered from a series of exposed poured concrete walls. There is a glass floor bridge that cantilevers out over the swimming/reflecting pool below and out to Lake Hollywood itself. The master suite is has ample use of glass and wood, magnificent views, and features a spa-like master bath. Rich finishes used throughout the residence include mahogany siding, and Tigerwood and Alabastrino flooring.
There is a variety of outdoor spaces including enclosed gardens and outdoor rooms to cantilevered decks, and an open sky terrace.
David Findley of Partners Trust Real Estate co-listed the property with Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills.
