There's something so delightfully odd about A-frame houses in Los Angeles. It's as if the architect is expecting a Day After Tomorrow-style apocalypse and we'll need to be prepared in case of heavy snows. This 3,868 square foot three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath is sited on a hillside, ans the listing notes it "display[s] a colorful pallet of rich hues." The house also features a "three tiered outdoor living/garden...anchored by a large stone fireplace" and "period detailing to include parquet floors, and a dramatic steel-rod suspended staircase." The master bedroom has its own enclosed patio. The last sale price was $460,000 in April 2003 (the prior sale price was $263,500 in Jan 2001). Today's asking price: $649,000 or $427 per square foot.
