Here's a listing you don't see the likes of every day. Per its description, the four-bedroom, three-bath Beverly Crest residence was "inspired by the Catalan architects like Antoni Gaudi." Public records tie the late-'70s house to Byron Vreeland, a noted art collector and former movie studio carpenter, who, we're gathering from his excerpted interview in this 1999 New York Times story, designed and built it himself. We wouldn't be surprised if Vreeland also penned the copy for the listing, which is exceedingly carpentry-centric, to wit: "Home sits on a massive foundation of 9 caissons, stems of 3' diameter, flaring to bells of 5' diameter secured 3' into bedrock; connected with a grade beam crib of steel and cement ..." et cetera, et cetera. Other features of the 2,603-square-foot house include oak cabinetry, a fireplace, copper plumbing, a new roof, and a two-car garage. Located on rustic Hebron Lane, west of Beverly Glen, it's listed at $1.375 million.
