This Montecito view home is about as far as you can get from the vice beat in Miami. Actor Don Johnson bought this sprawling California farmhouse last year for $12.5 million but decided to sell it when he and his wife found another property with space for their horses.

The home they are selling -- it comes on the market for $14.9 million today -- is set on 2.5 acres but requires them to board their horses. The property has a pool and meandering trails, all with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean.

Previous owners remodeled and updated the original 1959 property, which had also been expanded by the previous owners before that. Each renovation seemed to come with more amenities. The home has a one-bedroom, one-bath, two-story guesthouse, a reverse-osmosis pool, an organic vegetable garden, a gym, a media room and a glass solarium where Johnson liked to drink his coffee in the morning.

"They really love this house," said listing agent Kathrin Nicholson of The Agency. The children's bedrooms open up to view terraces, and the property includes an in-ground trampoline, a music room and an open family room that connects by glass doors to the patio by the pool.
