How now, brown house? This mid-century in Laurel Canyon was put on the market last summer at an asking price of $999,000, where it hung around for a couple of months and a couple of pricechops, finally changing hands in November for $730,000. Five months later, it's been transformed from rustic hippie-type pad to austere executive-style living quarters, as you can see from the attached photo gallery (first six pix are from previous listing). Per the current listing, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath residence features "all new electrics & plumbing, all new kitchen with Caesar stone counter top & new Viking Designer series appliances," as well as "travertine floors throughout." Its new asking price is a bold $1.875 million.
