Known for his modern designs, Los Angeles- based architect Steve Hermann finished his latest project in Montecito, California, about four months ago.
Mr. Hermann considers the home, called the Glass Pavilion, his “opus.”
When he builds in the Hollywood Hills or Beverly Hills, Mr. Herman says he is usually restricted to a small lot.
This lot measures about three-and-a-half acres and gave him the space he needed to create a home featuring walls of glass.
“Here I have complete privacy,” Mr. Herman says.
“It allows you to be one with nature inside the house.”
The 13,875-square-foot home features five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a kitchen with a wine room and an art gallery that displays the architect’s vintage car collection.
Mr. Hermann, who has a passion for mid-century modern furnishings, also designed some of the home’s furniture, including the benches in the hallway.
He originally built the home for himself, but while the six-year project was underway, he says, his plans changed.
Among those changes, he notes, was the birth of his daughter, now 10 months old.
Mr. Hermann says he will likely rent another home for awhile before embarking on another project for himself.
The home is now listed for $35 million, and the furnishings are negotiable. Suzanne Perkins of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
