Home Tour: Photographer Jill Greenberg's hillside escape

October 7, 2011 |  5:30 pm

Jill Greenberg bathroomThe house that Beth Holden designed for photographer Jill Greenberg and producer Robert Green takes cues from some of Greenberg's best-known photos: a cool (at times frosty) palette, a layer of glam and flash, a touch of playful surrealism -- all of which seems fitting once you've seen the hillside house's unbelievable view.

The homes we profile often fall into familiar categories: modern innovators, restoration wonders, budget remodels, small-but-smart spaces. This one? File it under L.A. fantasy, a live-work escape complete with artificial turf on the rooftop playground. 

Story and 360 panoramas

Traditional photo gallery

We have been tracking progress of this house for about two years, most recently so photographer Jill Greenberg panoramaBryan Chan could complement our article and traditional photography with 360-degree interactive panoramas that allow you to pan and zoom inside various rooms. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
