Location: Los Angeles, Calif.
Price: $4,995,000
The Skinny: There's a reason this Hamptons-style home in the hills above Brentwood features an eclectic mix of design elements that includes a Wire poster (the post-punk band, not the HBO show) and an Eero Aarnio Bubble Chair: fashion designer and socialite Minnie Mortimer makes her home here with her screenwriter husband Stephen Gaghan. The home, which has been featured in Vogue, successfully combines tastefully arranged clutter, midcentury modern furniture, and an extensive art collection with the traditional look and feel of the 1946 home, which features ocean, city, and mountain views. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home also comes with a screening room and a guest house, and seems priced exactly right at $4.995M (a rarity in a market where ambitious brokers routinely over-reach on the asking price for homes with any sort of celebrity connection, though how many non-pros could cite Gaghan as the writer of Traffic and director of Syriana is an open question), meaning the couple will have to be satisfied with an 11 percent premium over the $4.5M they paid for the home in 2009.
