A Santa Barbara Home on 160 Acres Lists for $12.9 Million
July 08, 2014 - Santa Barbara
Film producer John Lesher will list his contemporary Santa Barbara home for $12.9 million, Mr. Lesher said.
LA architect Barbara Bestor designed the home for Mr. Lesher, head of Le Grisbi Productions, and his wife, Christina Liao.
Completed in 2010, the house sits on about 160 acres in Toro Canyon, with mountain and ocean views.
The roughly 3,500-square-foot main house has three bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms, a media room and a yoga room.
A nearly 800-square-foot guesthouse has one bedroom, one bathroom and a "sleeping nook" with built-in beds. There is also an infinity-edge swimming pool and a cabana with a bathroom and outdoor shower.
The house is organized around a large central courtyard and two smaller interior gardens, one of which opens off the yoga room.
The living room has a roughly 25-foot-wide glass wall that retracts into the wall for an indoor-outdoor feel, Ms. Lesher said. On the pool cabana, a perforated metal awning provides shade.
While most of the property remains wild, just under 2 acres of the land are landscaped with olive trees, California oaks, agave and lavender.
The listing agents are Suzanne Perkins and Ronald Brand of Sotheby's International Realty and Billy Rose of the Agency.
