The Stunning Stepped Solution to Building on a Challenging Hillside

Location: Los Angeles, California

Price: $3,195,000

Burrowed into the Hollywood Hills, this modern concrete home is unconventional in all the best ways. For one, it manages to squeeze 3,600 square feet onto a steeply-sloped 0.13-acre lot. Second, it does away with the traditional roof, opting instead for a swank entertaining space with swimming pool, hot tub, cabanas, and views of city and ocean beyond. Lastly, the interiors contain plenty of glass walls to keep the light flowing to the back of the house, which would otherwise be a dark, dungeon-like space. Elevator access to four floors, two garage spaces, and three bedrooms complete this $3,200,000 offering.
