If you like giant concrete walls and having to walk through a water feature to get into your house, you're going to go nuts over this four bedroom, four bathroom house in Sherman Oaks. It's been on and off the market since last December and is now a short sale; the listing says it's under contract and that it's "About to be STOLEN!" but also "BUYER FLAKED." So who knows what's up with the sale. But as for the house: a developer built it for himself in 2003, it's 3,165 square feet, and it has two kitchens, a pool with waterfalls, and a "tropical indoor entry with running water stream." Asking price is $949,000.
