Nestled into Santa Barbara’s seaside mountains, this modern retreat is the stuff of California dreams. Designed in 1985 by Cliff Hickman, an architect inspired by all things Frank Lloyd Wright, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom home was once the getaway for pop star George Michael. Now it’s on the market for just under $6 million.

The 4,840-square-foot house makes the most of its surroundings with a hexagonal shape that grants views onto the mountains, ocean, and city below. In the center of the home, a stone chimney rises to the ceiling like a tent pole, separating the great room and a large kitchen that’s custom built for entertaining.

Large windows wrap around the exterior of the house and peer onto an expansive terrace that hovers above a pool patio below. The property also includes a guest house, sauna, and a private tennis court for taking advantage of the city’s perpetually perfect weather.

Located at 2211 Mount Calvary Road, this home is listed now at $5,995,000.
