The Santa Barbara Design House and Gardens is a philanthropic showcase home project developed by actor Dennis Franz of "NYPD Blue" television series fame, and his wife, Joanie in conjunction with the Junior League of Santa Barbara.

The home is open to the public for tours now through October 7, 2012. Proceeds support youth literacy in Santa Barbara.

The 6,000 square foot Hampton’s style estate is nestled on 1.62 acres of prime gold coast land anchored by majestic California Coastal Oak trees, some over 250 years old.

The property features a private tree-lined drive, an outdoor gourmet kitchen, outdoor wood-burning fireplace, loggia, swimming pool, authentic bocce ball court, an exquisite two-bedroom cabana and a detached two-car garage.

These carriage house style garage doors look like old-fashioned swing-out doors but operate with the convenience of a modern overhead opener that can be controlled by a smartphone.

The architect selected Clopay Reserve Collection custom wood carriage-house style garage doors handcrafted in Western Red Cedar with a grooved panel design for the home’s two-car garage. Cedar withstands the natural elements making it an ideal wood species for a garage door in any climate.

For more information about the project, visit Santa Barbara Design House and Gardens.

Garage doors installed by Consolidated Overhead Door. Garage door openers donated by LiftMaster.
