If nothing else, you have to appreciate this house's flair for the dramatic - a sweeping staircase, a pink exterior in the back, and amazing views. Built in 1937, this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath house sits on a 18,562 square foot lot in Silver Lake. The property includes extensive gardens, 13 fruit trees (someone counted!), a gym, a music studio/screening room, a pool/cabana and a small fish pond. The house also features a "gracious sweeping art deco stairwell complete with a nickel plated banister" and "vintage custom mahogany walls with custom built shelving" in the den. Last sold in May 2007 for $1.8 million it looks like the current owner (a local restaurateur) is just trying to recoup her sales price. Asking price: $1.795 million.
