If you’ve always dreamed of living like a diva, this luxe Pacific Palisades jewel box might be the home you’ve been waiting for—as long as your bank account has the wherewithal to match your fantasy.

On the market for $4.9 million, the Mid-Century Modern remodel belongs to tastemaker Philippe Rousselin, owner and partner of the artfully named Diva Group furniture showrooms.

Built in 1966, the home got a complete makeover in 2003, making it a perfect stage for Diva Group’s Italian modern interiors. A tour of the home gives potential buyers a peek at the gorgeous furnishings in every room in the house, all selected by the “gifted eye” of the owner.

Trust us, you’ll want to leave your things behind and move in as is—the furniture is also available for separate sale. Put on your poker face and negotiate it into the deal.

Aside from the fabulous furnishings, the four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home takes advantage of its Mid-Century Modern origins and mixes in tasteful 21st-century updates.

The floor-to-ceiling walls of glass open up to a patio and pool with Pacific coastline views. The stark white interior is a minimalist backdrop that shows off the luxury furniture. The orange sofa just pops, doesn’t it?

The seamless space comes equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen and breakfast bar, and family and dining areas that blend easily with the outdoors.

There’s plenty of room to host an alfresco event. Heat lamps, an outdoor living room, and a dining table make for a great entertaining area. And the stylish décor can’t compete with those premium Pacific Ocean views out back.

Or simply keep the views to yourself as you splash in your pool and lounge around with your family.
