Design guru David Kelley is selling his California home for almost $15 million.

Set on five acres of lush woodland in the exclusive Silicon Valley town of Woodside, this house is regarded as a post-modern masterpiece.

It was co-designed by Italian architect Ettore Sottsass and Kelley, who is the founder of design consulting firm IDEO — best known for designing Apple’s first computer mouse — as well as Stanford’s design school.

8,000 square foot in total, the property consists of six separate and unique pavilions. It comes with a working equestrian center with an arena, stables, and a tack room.

Michael Dreyfus of Dreyfus Sotheby’s International Realty and Sean Foley of Coldwell Banker have the listing.

Take a look around:

Six-foot-tall detached cabinets, installed at various angles, break up the large space between the kitchen and Living areas. “Not only are they handy conversation starters, but they’re damn convenient,” Kelley told the Wall Street Journal.(credit: Bernard Andre)
Sottsass also designed some of the furniture in the house. According to Dreyfus Sotheby’s, the potential buyer will have the option to buy this furniture, but it is not included in the price. (credit: Bernard Andre)
