Santa Barbara Contemporary Home, Estate of the Day
This gorgeous home is currently on the cover of Unique Homes and has been features in a wide variety of television shows and magazines. This California beauty is a four-bedroom home on six acres in Santa Barbara. This is not the home for those who find angular design offensive. There's not a curve in sight. Instead it is a dramatic play of rectangles and squares in stone and slate that give this home its stunning good looks. The architect Richard Landry has created a home that has a variety of water features and has a wide open floor plan that is broken into different functional areas for formal and informal living situations. There is a gourmet kitchen with multiple sinks and dishwashers as well as a wine cellar. The master bedroom has a black granite bathroom and a private terrace which includes a spiral staircase to the lower gardens. The owners built the home, which was designed in 1993. It is listed at $8.85 million.
