The owner of this 1926 house just below Runyon Canyon tells us it was designed by MGM/Paramount art director Harry McAfee, whose handsome work we've also seen in Whitley Heights. This specimen comes with seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, stenciled ceilings, a courtyard, a dining room with city views, a two-room staff wing, "oversized custom period windows," a tower room, a "large guest apartment w/ kitchen," a pool and a "path to unobstructed view terrace w/ pergola." Plus at least one spot that looks perfect for a human sacrifice ritual or some other variety of extreme debauchery (in a good way!). Asking price is $4.995 million.
