Celebrity chef Bobby Flay spent the last few months looking at a Midcentury Modern–inspired home in Los Angeles, but it was missing something he dreamed of: a chef-worthy outdoor kitchen.

The owners of the home happened to be designers. They agreed to work with Flay to build an outdoor kitchen to Flay’s specifications, including a pizza oven and an Argentinian-style grill.

That sealed the deal: Flay bought the home, on Rising Glen Road in the hills above Sunset Boulevard, for $7.6 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The sellers, Michael and Arya Martin, designed and built the 5,800-square-foot home. They run the design-and-build firm OSKLO.

The boxy house has floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a largely open floor plan. It was recently featured in Architectural Digest.

The Midcentury Modern inspiration is clear in the built-in floating shelves and interior glass atrium. Each of the four bedrooms opens to a private terrace and pathway connecting to the rear of the home.

The small, fenced-in back yard centers on a patio area and the pool. There are lawns, sculptures and landscaped trees.

L.A.’s residential market, particularly the top end, remains hot nearly

10x Genomics buys big site for Pleasanton campus

PLEASANTON — 10x Genomics has bought a big Pleasanton site where the fast-growing biotech company intends to establish a major hub for its local operations.

The life sciences company plans to bulldoze a long-time retail center that once was packed with merchants but is now riddled with vacancies and replace it with a modern office campus next to Stoneridge Shopping Center.

The just-purchased redevelopment site is a few blocks away from the 10x Genomics headquarters, located at 6230 Stoneridge Mall Road.

10x Genomics paid $29.4 million for the shopping center site, according to documents that were filed on Jan. 25 with Alameda County officials.

The transaction was an all-cash deal, the county records show.

10x Genomics seeks to build three office buildings and a parking garage on the future development site, which is at 1701 Springdale Ave. and is bounded by Springdale Avenue, Stoneridge Mall Road, and Stoneridge Drive, county assessment records show.

The purchase is an indication that 10x Genomics plans a long-term presence and dramatic growth in Pleasanton.

In its annual report for the 2019 calendar year filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, 10x Genomics sketched out some of the factors that are fueling its need to

Peter Thiel buys $18M Miami estate once featured in MTV’s ‘The Real World’

Billionaire entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Peter Thiel, nabbed a Miami estate featured on MTV’s ‘The Real World’ for a hefty $18 million.

The 10,041-square-foot compound, which consists of two properties on E Rivo Alto Drive within Miami’s Venetian Islands, is now home to the 53-year-old PayPal co-founder, the latest to leave Silicon Valley, according to Business Insider.


The estate was previously owned by former Ford CEO Jacques Nasser before it hit the market over the summer, the outlet reported. However, after sitting on the market to the tune of $19.9 million, Nasser dumped the property in September to Atlantic View Holdings LLC, according to property records obtained by FOX Business.

Inquiries to Thiel’s office were not returned.

The property was built in 1995 and has nine bedrooms and a dozen bathrooms, according to a property listing. However, one of the homes on the sprawling two-lot property was also used as the former set of the MTV reality show, “The Real World” in the late 1990s.

The four-bedroom, three-bath home had housed seven cast members of “The Real World: Miami”
