This French Country-style residence on the Carpinteria coastline once served as a retreat for President-elect Bill Clinton following his victory in the 1992 election. The Clintons would return to the park-like confines the following year for another family vacation.

The estate, built in 1986, sits behind gates amid old cypress and eucalyptus trees, meandering trails, orchards and a putting green. Ocean panoramas and 350 feet of beachfront form the backdrop for the 4-plus-acre setting.
