Can Snapchat Specs Sell a $15.9 Million Mansion in L.A.?

When it comes to selling an expensive home, agencies and brokers will do whatever it takes to find a buyer.

As such, pricey marketing videos have become a new fad—and a dime a dozen. Typically, these glamorous trailers are packed with shots of expensive cars, models lounging by the pool and curated art on the walls. It’s all in an effort to create the perfect fantasy of what your life could be like, if you resided in an eight-figure home.

When 28-year-old developer Patrick Fogarty completed The Origami House—named for its “folding paper” architectural design—in West Hollywood, he hoisted the home onto the market for $22 million in 2017 but saw little movement using traditional marketing methods. So he figured it was time for a new approach and a price chop; the home is now on the market for just $15.9 million.

Does the Origami House Have the Best Views in Los Angeles?

The 7,000-square-foot West Hollywood home has five bedrooms, an infinity pool, a movie theater, a wine-tasting room, and more.

Situated on a promontory above the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, the Origami House gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “million-dollar views.” Thanks to its coveted vantage point and south-facing walls of glass, the 7,000-square-foot home offers views from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean. Designed by the award-winning firm Belzberg Architects and developed by Patrick Fogarty, the haute building displays an angular design, clean lines, and intersecting walls of glass.

The two-story home is outfitted with five bedrooms—including a 1,200-square-foot master suite that is perched over the pool deck below and a to-die-for deep soaking tub—and five-and-a-half baths. A floating staircase leads to the second floor, where all the guest suites are equipped with private balconies. Downstairs, the basement has a backlit, glass-encased wine-tasting room with space for up to 750 bottles and a 12-person screening room with a built-in wet bar and plush seats.
