A reader nominated this house, commenting "interesting cross between Modern and Moderne. Overall, though -- awesome, dramatic house. " Let's see if anyone agrees. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home in Silver Lake was designed by Michael Pierce (the architect behind Gwyneth Paltrow's Greenwich Village town house). The house sits on a 12,371 square foot promontory and features "high ceilings, large windows, sliding glass & a mezzanine style master bedroom. The sliding glass doors of the living room opens to reveal flat, rear grounds complete w/ private pool, spa & large outdoor dining area." The house is owned by a successful video director, and apparently, the brother is an even more famous movie director. The house was originally listed in December at $1.7 million, a substantial premium over its May 2005 sales price of $1.5 million. Today's asking price: $1.45 million. Listing is here.
