Listings held by Rodeo Realty’s Joe Babajian and Timmy Woods indicate the mullet-style residence — the low-slung, single-level street profile drops to three full stories at the back — has three bedrooms, five bathrooms and several fireplaces, including one in the master bedroom that incorporates a see-through fire box and uniquely frames a glittery view over the city.

A couple of bedrooms, including the master suite, are located on the middle level and open to small private balconies, while the third is nipped down on the lowest level along with a family room that features a party-sized sunken wet bar. Greenish-tinted floor-to-ceiling glass sliders open the lower level rooms to a stone-tiled entertainment terrace with an infinity-edge plunge pool that cantilevers out over the hillside.
