Home of the Week: An exotic vibe in Hollywood Hills West

This modern-style home features rich wood panels, textured stone and walls of glass. Exotic flora, drought-tolerant landscapes and a koi pond lend a tropical vibe to the outdoor living spaces.
(Simon Berlyn)

Tucked within a pocket of canyon wilderness, this wood-paneled and glass-enclosed residence is visually dramatic, with a switchback design that lifts the master suite and media room above the main level. Walls of glass and multiple wood-lined balconies take full advantage of hillside and city lights views.
