The listing for this home in Encino invites us to "image yourself living this desirable life style," but mostly we're too busy being confused. Between the 87 different kinds of wood used on the floors, walls, and ceilings, an English country/Mission revival/grandfather's office/is that a cowskin rug? mashed-up style, that indoor spa, and wondering what goes on in a "commercial pool", we're struggling to get a handle on this place. But here's what we do know: the four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 4,000-square-foot house was built in 1938 and sits on nearly two-thirds of an acre. In addition to that pool, the property includes a detached office, guesthouse, and giant Buddha sculpture. It's on the market for $2.195 million, if this is a lifestyle you'd care to image yourself living.
