Fanny Brice was a comedienne and Ziegfeld Follies star that was played by Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl. Brice lived in a home on North Faring Road in Hollywood from the time it was built in 1938 until her death in 1959. The home has been featured on multiple covers of Architectural Digest.
In 2001, Laura and Richard King bought the property. They wanted to rehab it, redesigning the interior layout to better fit their family, and expand the footprint about 30 percent. They were quite keen on keeping the original integrity of the building intact.
When it came time to renovate, they discovered that the rehab would mean removing almost the entire structure. However, they were able to keep the front facade intact, and build the remaining exterior with windows and bricks that matched the original 1930s structure.
The renovation took five and a half years.
But after living there for about seven years, the Kings put the house up for sale. They were asking $65 million.

I think this house-shaped dinner plate set would be loved by all kids.
But not just kids, also the architect, designer, or real estate agent (etc.) in all of us!
The sun-cup, house-plate, cloud-bowl, and tree-utensils are removable, but also fit snuggly into the landscaped background to keep your Little One’s meal all in one place.

This custom Lutz, FL home was designed by TOTeMS Architecture.
It’s on a large lake and near wetlands, which gives it the feel of a tropical oasis. The house itself contains many large expanses of glass, allowing residents to fully experience the beautiful natural setting, even when inside.
The exterior of the house includes cypress lap siding inspired by local cypress trees and a roof made of anodized stainless steel shingles. The cypress theme carries into the interior of the home with cypress beams.
The U-shape of the home allows for 6,000 sq. ft. of living without removing any of the significant trees that were on the lot. And the landscaping is pristine, like something straight out of a magazine.
Here are some of my favorite photos of the house and gardens:
