Just last August, this nest atop a private promontory in Laurel Canyon hit the market looking a lot less striking. But as the entryway's statement concrete-block screen suggests, its homely past is long behind it now. From the circular, sunken living room with its rotating bar wall to the stellar backyard (pool, patio, lawn, views), this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom 1960s estate is a brand-new house (figuratively). Sold last year for $1.85 million, the dwelling and the .79-acre of land it sits on are now listed for $4.695 million.
