Michael C. Hall's Hal Levitt-Designed Home
If you follow the real estate wheelings and dealings of the rich and famous, you've probably stumbled across the name Hal Levitt once or twice. A prominent midcentury architect, Levitt designed homes for several members of Hollywood's elite, including Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg, producer Walter Mirisch and talent agent Lew Wasserman. In more recent years, celebs Jennifer Aniston and Ellen DeGeneres have owned homes designed by Levitt.

Recently listed by actor Michael C. Hall (best known for his portrayal of blood spatter analyst by day, serial killer by night Dexter Morgan on the hit Showtime series Dexter), this Los Angeles home is particularly special because it served as Levitt's personal residence for four decades. The architect renovated the home -- originally built in 1933 -- when he purchased it in 1964, injecting his signature mod style.
According to listing information, the three-bedroom pad features a redesigned kitchen, a voluminous living room with massive windows and a light-filled dining room that opens to a patio and "dexterous" pool. (Get it?)
Count us among the fans of Levitt's sleek-yet-inviting style of architecture. Now where's a celebrity-level salary when you need one? Don't miss the photo gallery below to see more of this killer midcentury pad.
