Ever come across a home for sale that you might actually be willing to kill for? No? This one may get you to consider risking capital punishment. It's a modern Hollywood Hills Nirvana. The amazing home, which includes an outdoor cinema, just went on the market (update: it has since sold).
Completed in 2007 and for sale at just under $6 million dollars*, this 5,800 square foot modern architectural masterpiece (which sits on a 67,041 sqft lot) by architect Hagy Belzberg includes astounding view of Los Angeles from every direction, an infinity pool, an outdoor theater and enough windows to necessitate purchasing cases of Windex from Costco.

Designed by internationally renowned architect, Hagy Belzberg, The Skyline Residence is a rare example of world-class architecture—representing one of the most important pieces of contemporary architecture built in Los Angeles in the last decade.
Published extensively and the recipient of numerous architectural awards, this gated modern compound, comprised of a 4-bedroom, open-floor-plan main house and a 1-bedroom, detached guest house (upon which one can project movies for the outdoor cinema), is widely recognized by its distinctive single-folded plate roof.
Expansive floor-to-ceiling walls of glass capitalize on the property’s ridge-top location and afford vast valley, downtown and city lights views. Classic appointments include poured white terrazzo, polished concrete and low-sheen walnut flooring; a 65-ft infinity pool & spa; large motor courtyard; and outdoor cinema.
