Cliff May was an architect practicing in California best known and remembered for developing the suburban post-war dream home — the California Ranch House. Also known as "Angie's Dream House" :)

If you have a spare 7.85 million kickin' around (and if you do we need to talk), you can pick up Sydney Pollack's Cliff May Traditional.  From the Huffington Post:
For the first time in thirty years, this Cliff May traditional, built in 1941 is for sale with a listing price of $7.85 million. Sydney Pollack and his architect wife, Claire bought the home in the 1980s and lovingly restored it. 
The Pollack's California shingle-roof cottage features four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Archetypal May qualities are highlighting throughout the home: "monolithic chimneys, thick walls, peg and groove oak floors, an oval dining room, acorn door hinges, and access to the gardens from every room," states the listing. The grounds include a saltwater pool and flora such as giant magnolias, birch and sycamore trees infuse the property.

You can find more information here.
unfortunately there are no pictures of the inside but I read there's a 2 story guest house and I'm kind of looking for a place soooo ... ;)
