ok....I think I could honestly say I would give a kidney, a thumb and perhabs my big toe to own and live in that house.

Does that make me a bad person?

OK so what kind of "restoration" did they feel was needed? Do they plan on taking out a loan to do the much needed sweeping? or maybe they are going all out and completely mowing the lawn.

I am so gald that there are apparently folks who are willing to take on a huge project such as this. It looks like a real fixer?

Don't know who did the Wilt house, but the large white house in the center of the image is by Ted Tanaka.

grh122,
Thanks for posting these great pics! Every time I review the set of pics I see an additional detail I had missed. Are those Terrazzo floors? It's hard to tell from the pictures. An amazing house from any angle or room! :D

Thanks for finding these additional photos. This house is on 5 acres, which is an almost unbelievable amount of land for the hills. Not sure how much of that is flat, but we can be thankful it wasn't demoed to make space for an oprah-style estate. I think it was on the market for 10 million?
Here's the sell-sheet, where it is looking slightly more loved and lived-in.

Yeah I think it was $6mil now that you mention it.. I recall that when it was for sale there was a CAD$10 million lottery and I realized that even with that I still couldn't afford it. Sigh. But it is sublime.

If you have to have a mansion, it might as well look like this one. There are some surprisingly intimate areas; the "back porch" eating area is one, the kitchen overlooking the entrance -- just like a suburban ranchette -- is another.

Dilettante, note knife-edge projecting battens, inside and out. . .

What's a "meticulous renovation" ?

Haven't seen it since before Sasoon bought it. At that time it was in almost perfect original condition.

I've heard that it's more like a meticulous remodel.

This house has been on the Flat Earth foods commercial lately, and can be seen here:

DELICIOUS chips, by the way.
