Chinese filmmaker Peter Chan has put a dramatic contemporary-style in home in Hollywood Hills West on the market for $6.295 million.

Built in 2007, the gated two-story sits on a secluded drive and has 270-degree views of the Sunset Strip and the downtown Los Angeles cityscape.

Through glass entry doors, the home opens to a living and dining room area with vaulted ceilings, stacked-stone accents and retractable walls of glass that span the entire length of the room.


Other common areas include a lofted office/bonus room and a modern-style kitchen complete with custom cabinetry, floating range hood and center island/breakfast bar.

A floating glass staircase leads to the second level, where the master suite features a bathroom done in vibrant marble, a soaking tub and a rain shower. There are three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in all.

Outdoors, a wide patio has a fire pit, a built-in barbecue and a covered dining area. An infinity-edge swimming pool and spa with a cascading waterfall feature completes the setting.
