built in 1997 and located in las flores canyon, the ravenseye house by american architect harry gesner is composed of 4,500 square feet. the vast open plan, together with the floor-to-ceiling windows, soak up the space with sunlight while offering spectacular views. inside, the home is defined by the massive great room which visually recalls frank lloyd wright’s wayfarers chapel. this probably because gesner was in fact, a wright-apprentice.
surrounded by lush gardens, the property also includes multiple deck and patio areas with pool and jacuzzi. three bedrooms and four bathrooms ensure the comfort of those who inhabit it. adding to the allure of this estate is a vintage 1957 airstream trailer that rests amongst the foliage and offers a fun additional space.
according to public records, the house was last sold in 2008 for USD $3.9M to english businessman gavin cain. the price augmentation is due to the fact that he collaborated with gesner himself to remodel the property. last year the property was first listed for USD $14 million and it has been resisted with a price deduction.
