This is Estate of Play, a monthly rundown (with pictures!) of five of the most architecturally significant properties currently for sale in Los Angeles.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Malibu Manse
Three bedrooms, two baths and 1,765 square feet on a lot of 6,893 square feet, which is plenty of land for leggy models. It has two stacked porches overlooking the ever-encroaching Pacific, and it’s tastefully decorated in a casual, neutral beach vibe.

Johnny Depp’s Downtown Flat
Apparently Johnny Depp owns five lofts in the Eastern Columbia Lofts, which comprise the entire top floor and include a rooftop pool. You could buy them together or separately. It’s a landmark property with some incredible murals inside (see the video below).

The Wave House
The Wave House is named for its undulating aluminum exterior, and the motif continues in wood on the front and garage doors. The-five bedroom home also has massive sliding doors that open to a peaceful backyard, giving the place an indoor-outdoor feel.

Electric Palms is an eco-friendly contemporary home that just went back on the market. Made of concrete with French oak floors and soaring ceilings, the space opens nicely to the secluded backyard.
Listing: Halton Pardee Partners
This colorful Malibu ranch comes with a tennis court, swimming pool with a waterfall, and a gourmet kitchen that’d make a chef green with envy. It was once the home of Hollywood art director Lyle Wheeler, whose work includes Gone with the Wind and the King and I.
