$1.649m via Unique California Property
Designed in 1958 for his family, this Robert Malinoff-designed 2,377 sq ft post-and-beam home sits in the shadow of the Hollywood sign and has been refurbished by HabHouse.

$9.5m via Occom Group, Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty
Studio Rick Joy designed Woodstock Farm – a 200-acre estate with a duo of barn-like properties built with stone and timber. Riffing on the traditional agrarian architecture found across the East Coast, the volumes have pitched roofs and timber-lined interiors. Ceilings and walls have wrapped glass windows that frame views of the Vermont property’s pond, while amenities include an indoor basketball court and ice rink. Go inside.
