Hollywood Hills Mansion - 9010 Hopen
Who would guess that what looks like a noninvasive skin rejuvenation clinic from the street opens into a panorama of contemporary cool with walnut floors, sultry lighting, and drop dead (literally, if you're not careful) views of the city?
The wonderland of opulence continues outside with a LED-lit infinity edge pool, plush turf lawns, and gargantuan floral art installations that add a bucolic elegance, and will turn anyone who can jump on top of them into fire Mario. And don't forget about the custom Renlita garage door, which weighs over a ton, and sports invisible motor mechanisms that are virtually silent during operation. Made, like all of the world's finest automobiles, in Australia.
At 3 bedrooms and 4,000 square feet, 9010 Hopen may not be a manse of Bill Gates proportions, but its sleek lines and open floor plan are still spacious enough for you and your choice of 5,333 Rubik's cubes; 3,555 hairless cats; or 2,857 kegs of Mike's Lite Hard Cranberry Lemonade. Sadly, the property recently sold for $8.65 million, but people with that much money are bound to tire of it within a year, so if you're in the area, be sure to drive by regularly and let us know when the "Free to a good home" sign goes up.
