Designed by architect David Lawrence Gray and recently remodeled, this steel, glass and concrete structure in Los Angeles is also known as The Fortress or King of the Hill -- Sunset Plaza. Originally, it was an art gallery, which makes sense when you see how high the ceilings are. The home was built on a promontory, a big, peninsula-like plot of land high in the Hollywood Hills. The 180-degree view lets you look out over downtown LA and all the way to the Pacific Ocean. It's a luxurious property with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a guest house, a huge spa, a pool, a Koi pond, a gym and a home theater.
The Fortress is also state of the art in terms of technology. Security-wise, there are cameras inside and out and electronic door locks. The house also has touch lighting systems and a professional steel kitchen designed by Porsche Design Group. The best in LCD and plasma screens are all over the house. The home theater has a 130-inch projection screen and built-in THX surround sound. It's a futuristic-looking home with the best of everything, and as of this writing, it could be yours for about $9 million dollars [source: Trulia].
