In an alternate life, the one where I am fabulously wealthy and own several homes in cities across the globe, I always imagined my (fantasy) LA pad to be perched high in the Hollywood Hills with panoramic views of the city, from which I could enjoy the smoggy, purple-hued sunset over the downtown core. Yes, I did have something specific in mind. Yes, I do like to browse real estate websites daydreaming about it. Which is how I came upon this amazing Hancock Park home, with a plush, elegant take on contemporary design and a hotel-style pool + bar so fantastic I might be tempted to forgo the hills.
