Just off the Sunset Strip, this Hollywood Regency-style mansion, originally built in 1936 and "inspired by Paul Williams," has a fantastic green garden and a koi pond before you even reach the front door. The nearly 2,900-square-foot residence holds a formal entry hall, a dining room, a den with a marble-topped bar, a screening room, and a large kitchen with checkerboard flooring. The house's three bedrooms—each with its own en suite bathroom—are upstairs. (The house has five bathrooms in all.) The master bedroom features a coved ceiling, as well as a long balcony overlooking the backyard. Sited on a 10,151-square-foot lot, the estate sold just last year for $5.25 million. (It was decorated in considerably more pastel hues back then.) It's now asking $6.995 million.
