by Cha Miñoza

Model/actress Nicole Nagel,

best known for her roles in ER and Suddenly Susan has just listed her Brentwood home for $11.995 million. And it’s far from your ordinary celebrity home.

Dubbed Constellation 167,

the house is an architectural marvel that features a stellar design, standing out like a huge piece of artwork compared to the traditional homes that line the family-friendly neighborhood.

The dome-shaped structure

is the first residence designed by famed architect Eric Owen Moss, who is known for his daring and unconventional designs.

Its striking design

has attracted several big names in both screen and publication. The house has appeared in TV shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Star Trek. It has also been featured in The New York Times and included in the book 100 of the World’s Best Houses.

Why Constellation 167 is a “love letter to geometry”

From the outside, the house looks more like a contemporary art sculpture than a family home.

Its exteriors showcase edgy details, a stucco finish, tilted windows, and a curved, asymmetrical roofline.

But looks can be deceiving

and while its exteriors are avant-garde, the inside offers a lot of coziness.

The interiors boast vast living spaces,

with expansive white walls and lots of natural light coming in from its large windows and many skylights. 

The inside also showcases unique details, 

with unconventional staircase layouts spread over its levels, uneven pathways, and a jagged steel fireplace.

Throughout the generous 5,476 square feet of living space,

we find four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a large dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, and a dramatic 2.5-storey living room.

One of its most notable upgrades is the backyard,

which has been improved with a lagoon-like swimming pool and a lush forest garden featuring lime, lemon, peach, plum, nectarine, orange, fig, avocado, mango trees.
