Harry Gesner’s Raven’s Eye
When it hit the Malibu, Calif., rental market in March, this striking, Gothic-inspired affair known as the “Raven’s Eye” presented itself as the perfect interim hideaway for a modern-day Don Juan, a super-villain, or perhaps an Ian Fleming-inspired emissary. Fittingly, the daring domicile was designed by lauded architect Harry Gesner, whose life story reads like a script for a dashing, playboy spy. With its striking, arched-frame windows and prime vantage point overlooking the sea, you deemed this luxury rental more than worthy of its $40,000-a-month cost.
