Location: Santa Barbara, Calif.
The Skinny: This new-to-market listing in Santa Barbara, Calif., offers an embarrassment of riches for its $12.9M asking price: breathtaking ocean and mountain vistas, a beautiful residential design by hot L.A. architect Barbara Bestor, and 160 acres of rugged wilderness land. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 4,330-square-foot home takes advantage of the ocean breezes, as well as the lot's elevation with telescoping glass walls, which let the cool air in and provides views stretch (on a clear day) all the way to the Channel Islands. Even the presence of the normally egregious infinity pool can forgiven when it provides such an awesome opportunity to kick back on your luxury floating lounger (the cup-holder stuffed with an unbreakable plastic carafe of Cab Sauv, natch) and watch the marine layer roll in with the sunset, filling the valley below and turning the city lights of Santa Barbara into a glowing orange smudge on the horizon.
