Could there be a better time for a house designed by and for renowned art director and Oscar statuette designer Cedric Gibbons? No, there could not. This Sunday is the Oscars, so maybe try to lock this place down before then. Chop chop! Seen on LA Home & Style, Gibbons's former Santa Monica lodgings hold four bedrooms with private balconies, box beam ceilings, a fancy modernized kitchen, an attached gym/office with separate entrance, and a balcony reminiscent of Gone With the Wind that wraps around the front of the house. (Gibbons art-directed Gone With the Wind, by the way.) Located about a mile and a half from the beach, the 1933 house is asking $3.695 million.
