The San Francisco Bay area is home to some of the richest people in the world, and therefore, some extravagant real estate.

This home combines iconic design elements with modern amenities. Located in the Berkeley Hills, it was designed by architect Daniel Liebermann and built in 1980.

Liebermann was a protege of celebrity architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and the home bears some of his trademarks. For example, the building was clearly inspired by Wright's concept of "organic architecture," meaning that it fits into the landscape and features natural elements that occur in the area, in this case, stone slate fireplaces and wood beams.

This style principle facilitates indoor/outdoor living, which this home has by way of sliding glass walls and cutouts for water features.
