Home of the Day: 007 digs in the Trousdale Estates
Designed by the award-winning team at XTEN Architecture, this sleek modern home in Beverly Hills looks like something out of a James Bond film: sexy, sophisticated and intriguing. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls retract to blur the boundaries between the open-plan interiors and the infinity-edge swimming pool just beyond. With unobstructed vistas of downtown L.A. and the Santa Monica Bay, the view is to die for.
