Designed by Case Study architect Thornton Abell, the 1965 Siskin House in L.A.’s posh Brentwood neighborhood is an International-style beauty distinguished by glass-and-steel pavilion-like living spaces and private, meandering gardens. It’s also been owned by bigwig Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer since 1985.

Bruckheimer, who purchased the home for about $1.9 million, first listed the seven-bedroom, 9,030-square-foot house in July 2015 for $14.5 million. At the time, Curbed LA commenters thought the place was “amazing,” “exquisite,” and “a never-ending orgasm.” But now, a year later, it’s still lingering on the market.

In January, the property lowered its ask by about $1.5 million and had a brief pending sale in June. For whatever reason, that deal did not work out, so the Siskin House is up for grabs again. Full gym, pool, four fireplaces, ponds, and of course, the designer midcentury retreat—who wants it?
