This laid-back, split-level house on a hilly side street in the Garvanza area of Highland Park has been the recipient of "well over $100,000" worth of upgrades, including brand new copper plumbing and central air conditioning. Eco-conscious features like double-paned windows and bamboo floors mingle with Caesarstone countertops and stainless steel appliances. The terraced yard holds a "yoga platform," multiple decks, and, of course, that 16-foot-wide yurt with French doors and its own bathroom. Last sold in 2012 for $430,000, the house is now listed for $599,000.
