Classic 1930s design meets 21st century style in this traditional hillside estate originally designed by architect Wallace Neff.

Refurbished by previous owner Jeff Lewis, the interior designer and “Flipping Out” star, the interiors were transformed using a contrast of hues, various high-end finishes and modern fixtures. In the formal dining room, abstract black-and-white marble floors serve as a focal point for the circular space.
