This pedigreed post-and-beam in Santa Barbara draws inspiration for its lofted, tree-like design from the surrounding oaks, sycamores and redwoods of Mission Canyon. Designed by architects Edwards & Pitman, floor-to-ceiling glass on the main level centers on tree top and mountain views. The master suite overlooks a flowing creek below.
