Current owner, architect Barry Berkus, gave the Alisal Ranch a complete overhaul recently, giving it a contemporary feel without disturbing May’s original vision.

Warm whites, creams and pale beiges add a welcoming feel to the bedrooms. The bathrooms themselves are luxuriously spacious. One striking feature is the Japanese-style Ofuro soaking tub. The Calfornia ranch home also features a pool and an outdoor barbecue.
