Badass architect Harry Gesner is known for his dramatic and pointy structures, and the Triangle House in the Valley fits right in. The compound is made up of a 4,600-square-foot main house, a guesthouse that's a tiny replica of the big one, a pool, and outdoor entertaining areas all share the property's secluded 1.3-acre lot, which is surrounded by trees and hills in suburban Tarzana. There's also a "futuristic carport," a sunken living room, with a fireplace, a huge wine cellar, and the massive gate at the opposite end of the house's long driveway. Last sold in 2011 for just $935,000, it's now asking $1.997 million.
