Will Arnett lists award-winning home for $11 million

There’s always money in the banana stand, to borrow from the show “Arrested Development.” But it might take a few more frozen banana sales to afford the Beverly Hills Post Office-area home of Will Arnett, who plays Gob Bluth on the show.

Listed for $10.995 million, the actor’s steel-framed house is a reimagining of a design by the late modernist architect Ray Kappe known as the RK2 model.

The L-shaped residence consists of six modules that were designed and built off-site by Succi Reddy in collaboration with LivingHomes, the design subsidiary of Rialto-based builder Plant Prefab.
