Beverly Hills House

Taking architectural chances is not uncommon in the homes we feature on this site, but this spacious house on Oak Pass in Beverly Hills is perhaps one of the most creative – and most beautiful.Aside from its stark and stylish modern choices, the house is built with an upside down program.

Instead of ascending to the houses’ private spaces, bedrooms are hidden in the hillside and covered with a roof that grows edible herbs. This Walker Workshop home may not be the Beverly Hills opulence that you would expect, but it has its own brand of spectacular.

The property is home to more than 130 oak trees, which were an integral part of designing the home. Not only did the architect and homeowners want a space that could easily look out upon this spectacular private forest, but they wanted an exterior that itself did not draw attention away from the beautiful natural surroundings.

For instance, an infinity pool on the ground level rests just underneath a large oak. Perhaps not the perfect design for the pool filter, the aesthetics are truly amazing. A dip in this pool is a luxurious version of a backhills swimming hole, complete with modern concrete deck and stylish deck chairs

Updown Court

The epitome of luxury! Updown Court is situated only 25 miles from London, and through a pair of large sophisticated iron gates, one can see a palatial construction of immense scale and beauty.
Updown Court, a newly built mansion for sale outside of London, offers plenty of lavish amenities: five swimming pools, an eight-limousine garage, and mosaic floor made of 24-karat gold leaf in the downstairs study.

The property, however, is best known for its price tag: more than 85 million British pounds (+$150 million USD).
