I know you saw this home in 2009 when it was being built and asked yourself, WTF are they doing? Turns out, this is Silicon Valley living in Highland Park for the investor who watches The Street 24/7.

Travis and Travis created an incredibly modern, clean-lined box with 4,015 square feet on a 50-by-169-foot lot. When you walk in, you are greeted by a video wall of nine 28-inch LCD TVs, setting the tone for the high-tech feel that permeates throughout. In fact, a flat screen hangs on nearly every wall in the house.

The home, at 3436 Mockingbird Ln., has formals — but they ought to be called “informals,” because there is a zero tolerance for stuffiness here. The house also has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and a carport for two.

The kitchen is European appliance central, with brands like Gaggenau and Miele. Another huge plus is the crisp and sunny downstairs master bedroom with sitting area and fireplace, not to mention a full spa bath and tons of closet space.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and baths, a sitting area with flat-screen TV, and a deck. Asking price is $1,500,000 with Emily Durante of Dave Perry-Miller.
