You've pulled a big chunk of your assets out of a failing Asian equities market and sell some bonds. Where do you go with all that cash? Shopping in Beverly Hills, where someone just paid $2421 a square foot for a new penthouse-  all 5700 of them.

In Los Angeles, a minimalist red stone wall closes off the front of a big house on a small lot. Behind it is a cascading fountain and a pool.

Designed by architect Worley K. Wong, of Campbell & Wong, built in 1950 and a perfect example of postwar Modernism in Northern California. There's an open house on Sunday, August 14 from 1:30-4pm.

The Miracle Mile/Beverly Center neighborhood is full of low-slung house in various period styles— this one was probably once Spanish— and it's ready to move into with a cocktail shaker. The price just dropped $104K after five days on the market.

A classic Los Angeles canyon cottage— a little Mission, a little Arts & Crafts, a little bit of Monterey Colonial— plus a great fieldstone master suite.

It's a great house— a survivor— and we lust after the kitchen, a bath, and cabinet details.

We seem to be obsessed with these hillside houses on small lots where the pool is at the top of the property…

Lacking a backyard, this new Hollywood Hills house puts the obligatory swimming pool on the roof.

Not everyone's image of San Francisco living, but this condo is only a block from the Embarcadero, Pier 30 and the planned America's Cup Village, the ballpark, and South Beach Park.

Apartments in this circa-1961 building don't come on the market very often, and this one looks like it may have only one occupant since the building went up- and its original kitchen appliances.
