Who said that being a recluse doesn’t pay? In the case of eccentric aviator, aerospace engineer, inventor, filmmaker and philanthropist Howard Hughes, that means a beautifully constructed Mid-Century home deep in the heart of Trousdale Estates. Designed by architect Samuel Wacht in 1960 and recently renovated in 2007, this 4 bedroom/ 5 bath party-pad has all the trappings a young bachelor could need including panoramic views, Smart Home audio & security amenities, and private indoor gym. The house’s  mid-century glamour is captured by its classic materials  including teak, glass, and terrazzo as well its focal sunken living room and its three linear travertine marble fireplaces. Yet the true spirit of the home is reflected in its clever use of outdoor space which features a rare rooftop deck, BBQ area, and a pool which seems to have been purpose built for l stylish entertaining. The estate also is being sold with a planning permit for a 900 sq ft subterranean addition and a four vehicle carport.
