This modern showplace, set on a hillside where “Diamonds Are Forever” screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz once made his home, exudes a sexy, understated vibe right out of a James Bond movie.
On the ground floor, massive glass doors open to a three-story chandelier-topped foyer with a modern floating staircase. White plaster walls show off colored lighting and art installations throughout three floors of living. Opaque portholes in the floor filter light into a custom wine cellar.
