For anyone looking for a mid-century home in the Hollywood hills that they can put their own thumbprint upon, here is your chance.

They’ve done everything from Googie restaurants, such as the windmill-topped Denny’s in arcadia (originally a Van de Kamp’s Holland Dutch Bakery), to spaceship-like homes, such as Huell Howser’s volcano house in Newberry Springs, to beautiful Spanish Colonial Revivals.

 With the view through these huge walls of glass one might think they were at a mountain retreat far from the city.
