It is three miles from Sunset Boulevard, putting it within 10 minutes of the Sunset Strip and the center of Beverly Hills, and within 15 minutes of the Los Angeles Country Club, where the U.S. Open Golf Championship was held last year.

The U.C.L.A. campus is also 15 minutes away. Century City is a 20-minute drive. Los Angeles International Airport is about 45 minutes away.

Size: 3,387 square feet

Price per square foot: $1,239

Indoors: The house, recently redesigned with an emphasis on natural materials, is at the top of a steep driveway surrounded by mature olive trees.

The main entrance is on the second level, reached by ascending two exterior staircases. The front door, imported from Turkey, opens into a living room with a stained cedar ceiling, an imposing stucco fireplace and doors facing a long, covered balcony. The living space flows into a dining area wrapped in large windows.

On the other side of the living area is a kitchen with custom-made oak cabinets, a long center island, an Ilve range, Marquina marble counters and a breakfast area with a built-in banquette. Off the kitchen is a powder room with an imported marble sink and walls finished in Venetian plaster.

The primary suite is reached from stairs in the living room and occupies the entire top floor of the house. The bedroom has built-in cabinetry, windows looking out onto the hills and more stained wood ceilings; the bathroom has a walk-in shower, a separate soaking tub and a wood vanity from Restoration Hardware.
