When Clive Wilkinson—whose firm is best known for designing Google’s Silicon Valley headquarters—first purchased the West Hollywood property in 2003, he sought to create a transition from the bustle of Melrose Avenue to a small residential neighborhood.

Once inside, you enjoy a full view of the site from the glazed living room to the rear courtyard and its 48-foot saltwater swimming pool. The open-plan living, dining, and kitchen spaces benefit from double-height ceilings that grant the home its airy feel.
