The 14,000-square-foot home of designer Steve Hermann, set in a secluded oak grove near Santa Barbara, Calif., is almost entirely transparent. The house, which took more than six years to build, has five bedrooms and six baths, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
The unique master bedroom features a wall of book-matched marble from Italy and a panoramic view of the landscape. The house sits on four acres and is surrounded by 20 additional acres of estate. Remote-controlled blinds, which can be operated via smartphone, provide additional privacy when desired, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
Like the master bedroom, the master bath is designed to provide a virtual outdoor experience, creating the impression that the space is open to the outside. The seamless glass windows that form the outer walls are made of Starfire glass, a highly specialized glass that is actually clearer than ordinary glass and typically reserved for such purposes as building jewelry display cases and high-end aquariums. The cost of upgrading from clear glass to Starfire glass was more than $1 million. The master bath's freestanding tub cost more than $20,000, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
