From above, this 8,150-square-foot home looks like an exquisite, contemporary dollhouse. From inside, it looks exhilarating—though maybe too much so if you're afraid of heights or sweeping vistas.
It was designed by local mainstay Dick Clark Architecture, which gets its share of side-eye. This is partly because it has been around so long and designed so many commercial buildings in town (South Congress Hotel, Capital Studios) as well as several metric tons of housage in the western/Westlake parts of town.
Most of them are not as hot as this one, it must be said. It has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and terraces and balconies everywhere—all of them with stunning views in all directions. It has motorized glass pocket doors in its living room (with its 17-foot ceilings), a gourmet kitchen designed by celebrity chef Tim Love, and Scott & Cooner Interiors by Karen Kopicki. It's not entirely a glass house, but it's close.
Originally listed for $10 million, the house dropped in price to $8,500,000 about three weeks ago, according to a representative of Kuper Sotheby's, which appears to have the exclusive listing.
