The Griffith Park inferno came close to destroying some lovely properties. Luckily, there are no reports of any homes being destroyed as of our last check. Here are a few available properties that survived the fire. Cross your fingers that mudslides aren't in their future.

3) What/Where: 3 bed/2.5 bath; Philippe Naouri, Designer
Retail Price: $2,275,000
Days on the Market: 164
The Skinny: Koi pond, pool, hot tub and fire pit. Everything a kooky fashion designer could ever want or need. And it's only a stones throw to smoldering Griffith Park. Zip Realty says the home's had a few price chops, but don't let that stand in your way. It's a modern delight.
