This sophisticated-looking contemporary — high on a knoll in the Hollywood Hills area defined by its use of bird names for streets — is visually dramatic with offset rooflines, irregularly shaped rooms and retractable walls of glass. Designed for entertaining, the two-story house features a sunken living room, a lower-level lounge with a bar and subterranean parking for up to six vehicles.
