Though it was built in 1924, it's the first time this fantastic three-bedroom house has ever been on the market. This Westwood house by architect Robert Byrd—known for rustic farmhouses, working a birdhouse into the roofs of his designs, and designing the Cielo Drive house that Sharon Tate was murdered in—features brick walls, beamed ceilings, stained glass, a curving brick staircase, an upstairs loft with a spacious balcony, and an indoor jacuzzi that overlooks the garden.
An equally cool back unit contains a bedroom, a bathroom, and a kitchenette. It's located just across Wilshire from UCLA, but would be perfect for a Hogwarts professor, or, more realistically, an "architectural preservationist." It's listed for $1,999,900.
