Home of the Week: A tour de force in Trousdale Estates


This sleek, single-level home pulls off a contemporary design coup with its emphasis on horizontal lines. Wide walls of glass doors slide open electronically to connect open-plan indoor and outdoor living spaces. City and ocean views stretch to the horizon. Even the long, low gas fireplaces follow the linear cues.
