1169 Loma Linda, Beverly Hills, $11,895,000
6 beds, 7 baths, 7500 square feet. I LOVE THIS HOUSE!! Designed by renowned architect Ed Niles - Architecture as art. It's all circular and state of the art with steel and tons of glass - super f*turistic. All of us geeky real estate junkies were walking around in amazing me - how can anything be so cool? Imagine a the house as a '"U" with everything (yard pool, flow) in the center of the house. Destined to become an icon of the city - think Disney Hall when you look at this house - jawdropping.Not buying a 12 million dollar home? you can lease for 50/k a month instead.

State of the art everything, retractable walls give it a great flow and there is indoor and outdoor everything - spas, patios, decks, steel, glass, gorgeous! they did not miss a beat, these achitects, the husband and wife team Jeff and Rochelle Mills of Mills Studio. Everything you'd imagine too - screening room, amazing master, infinity pool, etc.
