When the angular Skyline Residence sold for $5.6 million back in 2009, it set a record for Laurel Canyon. Now the house—designed by Belzberg Architects and once home to the firm's principal Hagy Belzberg—is back on the market, looking as good as ever, and asking for a lot more. For the eco-conscious wealthy person, this house has used locally-sourced building materials and exploits the sunny hilltop location with energy-saving solar cells, say our friends at Curbed National. The gated, five-bedroom abode has received multiple awards and features a detached one-bedroom guest house, a fireplace that hangs from the ceiling, and a truly extravagant outdoor theater. The asking price is $8.995 million.
