Location: La Jolla, Calif.
Price: $12,500,000
The Skinny: Designed by San Diego-based "architectural designer" Wallace Cunningham in 1990, this sprawling hilltop compound in La Jolla last traded hands two decades ago, for $2.5M. Now it is finally back on the market, showing off its attractive facade, stunning views, dated furnishings, and huge, $12.5M price tag. The glassy design houses five bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 6,800 square feet, plus a courtyard swimming pool, a master suite with fireplace and sunken seating area, and a glass elevator that connects the terraced levels. Since the '90s, Wallace Cunningham has built dozens of creative modern homes in Southern California, including a giant Egyptian-inspired mansion across the street from this property and "The Razor," a striking, 11,000-square-foot megamanse listed for $32M.
