According to its listing, this mid-century time capsule in Bel Air has been "maintained by the original owners who picked the lot and commissioned the architect." That would be Paul Wuesthoff, whose firm Pearson & Wuesthoff designed movie theaters in the West and Southwest during the 1960s and '70s. It's fair to say that Wuesthoff got a bit theatrical with this 1964 residential commission as well -- the 3,583-square-foot residence boasts a sensory-overloading array of textures, patterns, and materials, starting with its (literally) groovy front doors. Sited on a .38-acre lot, it features four bedrooms, five baths, wood-paneled walls and ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, an interior atrium, heated swimming pool, and "Queen's Necklace" views. Asking price is $2.995 million.
