Only a few months ago, the Harry Gesner-designed Malibu residence Ravenseye hit the open market at $14 million. The astonishing postmodern house remains an active listing—although its asking price was clipped to $11.95 million—and this week was joined by another Gesner house, which had only about a week’s sojourn on the market before it moved into contingent status. Now another gem by the famed architect is up for grabs.
The home is known as the Flying House, and it occupies a .82-acre hilltop lot in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood. It measures 4,543 sq. ft. across three floors, with the lower floor partially built into the hillside and containing a living area with an outdoor terrace that takes full advantage of its imperious position; the views are stunning.
An elevator trip to the upper levels reveals the main living area and a master suite. The living area is open concept, with glass walls presenting the city as panorama. There’s quite a bit of wood involved, with red brick and tile also prominent in the build; the wet bar is a beautifully designed mix of hardwood and marble.
The suite includes a home office; additional amenities include a recording studio, an outdoor patio, and a zero-edge pool.
