House of the Day: L.A. Contemporary Lists at $23 Million

June 6, 2011

There is much to commend this house on Los Angeles' Westside listed at $23 million, so forgive us for getting hung up on the Zen-like grounds. It's just one of those places where they could have stopped there and still would have had us.

The midcentury contemporary sits on about 1.67 acres of serenity and includes a six-bedroom main house of more than 9,000 square feet. There is a detached guest house, a pool house with kitchen and bath, and a detached state-of-the-art gym.

The walled and gated compound has parklike grounds that include an outdoor courtyard complete with fountain and a resort-style pool. The master suite has his-and-hers baths. The gourmet cooks' kitchen has a breakfast room with vaulted ceilings and fireplace. There are formal living and dining rooms, and a library with built-in, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates, Beverly Hills, has the listing.
