The architect for this home, Hagy Belzberg, is also responsible for the some of the more controversial projects in this city in recent years (see: Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, the doomed Hotel Ray). According to the listing for this five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath completed in 2007, the estate consists of a four-bedroom open floor plan main house and a one-bedroom detached guesthouse. The architect's web site claims the house was built around a "Carbon Neutral Economics" philosophy - sourcing materials that were manufactured locally to save carbon emissions. The house also includes a pool, outdoor cinema, and a large motor court. The last sale price on this property was in 2002 for $370,000. Today's asking price (post house construction): $5.995 million.
