    Hmm. Well, I like it more than the home next door to Palais d’Anges. The exterior looks like a nice interpretation of 1920s Mediterranean. The backyard looks terribly cluttered though with all the steps and balustrades.

    The interior is bare bones. I get that this is supposed to be a clean slate, but this is too clean. The details are few and far between. The library fireplace is inexcusably cheap considering the asking price. The foyer balustrade belongs outside, not inside. I’m on the fence with the circular kitchen islands…looks like a bathroom designer took a stab at the kitchen.

    OMG!!! this house turned out beautifully. when I was in LA two summers ago, the mill work crew let me walk around the entire house. I knew it was going to be special and it didn’t disappoint. I was told it was designed by an architect named Timothy Morrison, but I couldn’t find any information about him or a website. it’s superb, beautiful and I’m glad to see it again. this is exactly the style that gets my blood flowing.

    I thought split foyers were solidly “out”, but apparently I’m wrong. The kitchen does not work for me at all, the oval islands are terrible. There’s a good quality home here, but it’s not for me.

    Looks like a lovely home, albeit SHOEHORNED into a lot that’d no doubt accommodate a much smaller house much better. As Daniel said……the house utterly devoid of even the faintest hint of color, depth, flavor or style. With all due respect to keeping it bland as typing paper to make it appeal to the largest possibly pool of potential buyers, this place looks like it isn’t finished yet…..it needs s substantial (but ENTIRELY CORRECT for the style, geometry and architectural genre) amounts of decorating, accents, personality, etc. etc. But THOSE DROP OFFS on an endless amount of homes in California, ALLLLL over the state are breathtaking, really. You better hope at your housewarming party that NO ONE gets uncontrollably blitzed and fancies him (or her) self Spiderman and tries to jump off the edge of the infinity pool or terrace/patio or balcony………it’s a looooooong way DOWN.

    Daniel and Barney nailed my biggest complaint about this house: ultra bland.

    It’s very very very…very…white. I like the exterior quite a lot. It’s architecturally interesting front and back, and there are some nice details. It is definitely shoehorned onto the lot, but that’s how it goes in the hills of LA. The design cleverly fits a very large house onto a difficult lot. It’s not completely private, but it does seem to be pretty well secluded. Looking at it from the street, it’s impossible to guess it’s as large as it is. The view is typically spectacular for this part of Bel Air.

    The interior has some good moments but it really does need a lot of work to be $29,000,000 worth of stunning. As Nova pointed out, the split-level entry is a real throwback to the 1970s, but it is a good way to use the slope of the lot to keep the front from being too massive. The kitchen is far too bathroom-like for me; I think marble counters work best when it’s a single accent counter and not the entire kitchen. I actually like the balusters in the foyer; they remind me of what you’d see in a Venetian palace, and look to be limestone or marble. I hate the wrought iron raining on the stairs. I’d remove that before anything else.

    A really well designed home. Love the fact that it is understated and available for ones own personal stamp. The bones are there and they are very good. Minor changes are expected from any buyer so the interiors can accommodate that.

    This is such a change from that hideous overloaded behemoth for $58M from a few days ago. The exterior has many fine elements and I also love the pool and pool house/guest house built into the terraces. Wonderful views and a real surprise. You really can build a beautiful house in the mecca of fake and gaudy and over priced properties.

    I love the look. Very tasteful and elegant aside from the kitchen island and balustrade in the foyer.

    I thought I was going to like this house at first. Then I took a closer look. It is a Hot Stank Steaming Turd Of A Dump Mess!!!!! The exterior looks good. But that stairway is all kinds of F’ed Up. The stairway looks “Cheap And Tacky” and ruins the whole house. The stairway just looks real cheap and lacks detail for a house of this price range. Also the walls look cheap and the floors look pretty standard. Its a hot mess!!! Now the rod iron stairs on the upper level looks ok but the stairway that you see from the first level is awful.

    I also want to add that I personally don’t like really big thick balusters like the one in this house. I think a house has to be really big and grand and have a really huge grand stair case like the one in Le Belvedere to pull off really thick balusters like this, but I will say that they do look like marble so they are good quality. But what ruins the stairs is the fact that there are no balusters at the beginning of the stairway. Its just a cheap banister made of drywall with a tacky looking rod iron handle and then the balusters begin as you go up the stairway and then once you get to the second story the design of the stairway completely changes to where it is all rod iron, it looks a hot mess. Look at the balusters in the stairway of Le Belvedere and see how ornate and intricate the work is. This house has a cheap banister made of drywall and crap with some fancy marbe balusters thrown in the mix. You can’t just mix cheap materials with a little bit of marble and pretend that it is quality. If you take out the marble balisturs that whole stairway looks like a cheap piece of crap made out of dry wall.

      “Its just a cheap banister made of drywall”…..:-S…..oh, Tony……your observations, proclomations & statements are seriously entertaining. You SURE do know A LOT about building, don’t you? And I’m so impressed that you’ve actually been in all the houses that you’ve commented on so far to tell all these facts about them. You really get around, don’t you?

          also if you have any common sense you know that most all houses today are made of drywall. Houses are not made of solid stone or other quality materials anymore like they used to be in the past. The better quality homes have some sorta veneer over the drywall to give the house the appearance of the quality of older homes like Marble House or the Biltmore or whatever but the houses made today are not solid stone or solid marble or whatever but they may have a veneer of stone or marble to give that appearance. But the cheaper made homes like this don’t even bother to even put a veneer. That is obviously drywall. That banister should instead be made of solid stone or at least the upper part of the banister should be solid marble through out for a home in this price range.

            I have PLENTY of common sense as I used to be a Realtor in a VERY wealthy suburb of metro-Detroit called the Grosse Pointes and know EXACTLY what I’m talking about, thank you very much. And I have a GREAT life…..I reiterate, to say that the banister is made out of “drywall” is laughable at best, and idiotic at worst. NO banister of ANY type would hold together if it were made of drywall The banister is this house is made out of a composite stone, I guaran-damn-tee you. To compare ANY house of ANY price point with the truly magnificent, NEVER-to-be-equalled mansions of Newport is again, absurd. I also am a very busy real estate and architectural photographer, so I KNOW MORE THAN YOU DO, DUDE.

    A lovely home but like other comments, I also find it very simple. Maybe because of the white paint but it really doesn’t strike me as memorable or enticing.
