  This collection of ten stacked duplex apartments in West Hollywood was finished in July 2009. Seven of the ten condos are still on the market, priced from $899K.

  Most of us have daydreamed about a house in Big Sur. At least once. This very special one is on the market for $4.95M.

  For those of us who dream of living in the world's largest salad spinner, our moment has arrived. This Ed Niles house in Beverly Hills has just been reduced to $10.895M.

  Some of get to be legends in our own time. You can pick up where Dennis Hopper left off at his Venice compound- it's for sale for $5.8M.

  It's not every day you can buy a house with a foyer modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, but just such a rarity is on the market in Los Angeles, asking $5.495M. Now's your chance.

    What's compelling about Los Angeles? It's full of interesting houses by  people re-inventing architecture, and one of these from 1964 is for sale for $2.495M.

  Berkeley is full of splendid Arts-and-Crafts style houses, and one of the best is on the market for $2.5M.

  This oceanfront house in The Sea Ranch is perfect for those long foggy weekends on the Northern California coast, and it's for sale at $2.6M.

  Realtors believe in staging. It gets rid of the distracting detritus of someone's life and puts a house in a fresh, open light. Sometimes it goes wrong, as in this Mid-Century classic for sale in Pasadena.

Houses say a lot about their owners. Some are warm and cozy, others build to intimidate (Versailles, anyone?) A  house ready to do just that is for sale in Los Angeles.
