For another envy-inducing look at how the other half live, here's a gorgeous Paul Williams Tudor on the market for $12 million.

This 7-bed, 6.25-bath Tudor at 915 Amalfi Drive in Pacific Palisades was build by architect Paul Williams in 1937. It sits on an acre lot and has hardwood floors, three fireplaces, a music room and a master suite. According to the listing, "the sprawling rear yard includes a sculptured boxwood rose garden and views to the canyon and beyond."

Paul Williams was a notable black architect who worked frequently in SoCal, designing homes from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball and Lon Chaney. He also designed La Concha Motel and the Los Angles County Courthouse.

The La Concha Motel was opened in Las Vegas in 1961, but shut down in 2003. Its surviving lobby can be found at the Las Vegas Neon Museum.
