Price: $1,950,000

Just in time for the release of Go Set a Watchman, Harper Lee's much-anticipated follow-up to her classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird, a Modernist-inspired new-build called the "Scout Residence" has come on the market in Los Angeles. The 2,087-square-foot dwelling shares an exterior stairway and garden with its "brother," a similar-looking pad named the "Jem Residence"—and yes, this dapper pair of spec houses completed last year seems to reference Scout and Jem Finch, the brother and sister characters central to Lee's books. Like "Jem," which sold in March for $1.8M, "Scout" offers more of the same clean lines, huge collapsible glass walls, luxe finishes like Bisazza tiles and German white-oak flooring, not to mention unobstructed views of L.A.

Designed by L.A. based firm Fung + Blatt Architects and built by local developer Ground Up, the home has three bedrooms, three full baths, and multiple terraces. It's now asking $1.95M.
