Montecito's 'Glass Pavilion' By Steve Hermann For Sale

The 'Glass Pavilion,' a massive modernist estate in Montecito, is on the market. True to its name, the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath mansion utilizes a stunning amount of glass to create an open and refreshing relationship with the surrounding 3.5 acre grounds. Aesthetes will likely enjoy the 2010 building's stylish kitchen and bath fixtures designed by celebrated Italian firms such as Poliform and Antonio Lupi. More astounding, though, is the home's gallery space capable of holding 32 cars--a feature that we see is well-used by the current owner.

Steve Hermann is the mastermind behind this sleek property. The designer and developer enjoys a Beverly Hills pedigree and has built abodes now inhabited by the likes of Christina Aguilera and Courtney Cox, according to Realtor.com. One of his Hollywood Hills projects is also for sale.

Potential buyers who are willing to sacrifice some privacy for style will be pleased to know that the architecturally impressive estate is currently listed at $19,995,000, down from a previous asking price of $35,000,000.
