Location: Santa Ynez, Calif. Price: $15,900,000 The Skinny: Designed by architect Michael Palladino, a design partner in Richard Meier & Partners Architects, this sprawling modernist mansion occupies a prime hilltop site amid 218 private acres of Santa Barbara wine country. Completed in 2005, the five-bed, five-bath spread is now listed for $15.9M, along with the aforementioned acreage, a separate guest suite, a two-bedroom cottage, a ranch manager’s house, an eight-stall horse barn, and extensive equestrian facilities. Though the current owner’s identity is disguised by a blind trust, the house is said to have been commissioned by Nancy Englander and Harold Williams, both former executives at the J.
