If you’ve been on the hunt for a home designed by a well-known architect, check out this four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath house designed by the iconic architect Cliff May. Often known as the “father of the California ranch,” May wanted to blur the lines between indoors and out and this home is no exception.

Custom built in 1974 in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant about an hour north of San Diego, the 5,740-square-foot ranch is on the market for the first time. May is remembered for combining the western ranch house and hacienda styles with modernism, and his skills are on full display.

Long horizontal lines combine with large windows and a courtyard design. Interiors boast wood ceilings—with skylights—and every room invites the outdoors in. Other details include impeccable tile work, spacious patios, and an inviting pool.

17538 El Vuelo is on the market for $6,450,000.
