By Loren Ro

Location: Camarillo, California

Price: $3,049,000

This modern home was custom-designed for the Daily family by award-winning architects Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman (aka Buff & Hensman) in 1979 and has been largely untouched since then.

Combining broad horizontal lines and square volumes, the 4,328-square-foot five-bedroom sits on over three acres in Camarillo, California, and includes a one-acre boutique vineyard producing Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay grapes.

The step-down great room is the focal point of the residence and boasts a double-height ceiling with expansive glazing and clerestory windows that usher in sunlight while creating a connection to the landscape. A towering fireplace anchors the living space, which is located on one end; a dining area is found on the other.
