Oh, if only all McMansions could be McMakins instead. And if only we could afford this 1920s Spanish in Santa Monica that Roy McMakin's Domestic Architecture team overhauled with delightful results. Situated on a 17,500-square-foot lot, the property features six bedrooms, seven baths, a library, basketball court, pool area and guest house. Asking price for the 4,100-square-foot house: $6.95 million.
