atla-073108-hg01.jpgThe Home and Garden section of the LA Times is moving to Saturdays with a variety of new features including lifestyles, DIY projects and lost LA homes. It'll be combined with neighborly advice and hot property from the Real Estate section. Here's a peek at this week's Hot Property, a breathtaking La Jolla house, listed at $39 million. "Designed to capture the magnificence of the site, to allow the owners to live as part of nature," it echoes the philosophy, if not the budget or the eco-conciousness, of what we've tried to impart during Green Month here at ATLA. More after the jump...

The 11,000 square foot multi-level estate was designed by architect Wallace E. Cunningham. With floor to ceiling windows, radiant heat in the outdoor spaces and unobstructed views of the Pacific, it takes full advantage of its California location and lifestyle. If you've ever visited the Getty Museum and dreamt of living there, this house is for you; the sea and the bluff are the art here, framed in every view.

And check out The Scout, the paper's weekly column which spotlights products and stores. This week, it puts the focus on items as disparate as a seemingly simple stainless and leather side chair that adjusts for proper lumbar support to a four foot high wicker pineapple that can be used now, by the pool to hold wet towels and, come cooler weather, find a place indoors corralling dirty laundry.
