If you are in the market for a new home and would like to take your talents to California, have we got a deal for you! Rob Lowe and his wife, jewelry designer Sheryl Lowe, have listed their estate in Montecito for $47 million. It’s a very, very nice estate.
Not sure? Okay, take a look at this description of the estate given by the listing agent at Sotheby’s…
In California’s treasured community of Montecito, this sweeping American-style manor feels as if it has always been here, amid towering oaks on 3.4 pastoral acres. Architect Don Nulty, landscape architect Mark Rios and feng shui master David Cho combined their considerable talents to create the peaceful estate, sparing no expense and overlooking no detail or amenity. Lines are clean and clear, details eye-catching, and proportions generous. The result is a home that shows equal appreciation for history, modernity, sophistication, and comfort.
The overall aesthetic tips its hat to traditional East Coast style and the legacy of the Virginia countryside, yet this is a stage for creating one’s own history, a destination for family and friends. The main residence accommodates both the formal and informal under one roof, or as the present owner described it to Architectural Digest, it is a “house perfect for mud boots or high heels.”
Views are integral to the estate: windows frame the ocean, while the pool gazes back toward the Santa Ynez mountains. Many upper-level spaces benefit from balconies or access to an expansive veranda that overlooks the manicured gardens.
Outdoors, alfresco meals can be prepared in the outdoor kitchen and barbeque area overlooking the rolling lawn. The grounds also encompass a two-bedroom guesthouse with a kitchenette, an 800-square-foot pool cabana with a full kitchen and a bedroom, and a championship tennis court with two viewing areas.
Yo, where do you prepare YOUR alfresco meals? Bet it’s not in an outdoor kitchen! (Note to self: find out what an alfresco meal is.)
Lowe spoke to Architectural Digest about the estate back in 2010, saying, “I’ve always been drawn to a historic, East Coast American aesthetic. But a house also has to be comfortable, able to withstand the simultaneous traffic of teenagers playing football on the lawn, barbecuing on the patio, me slipping off to write.
Yeah… those teens and their football. No wonder he lives in a $47 million home.
Speaking of that home, it has 20 rooms including six bedrooms, nine-and-a-half bathrooms, nine fireplaces, a cinema, a wine cellar, a den/music room with a bar, an office, a gym, a swimming pool, a spa, tennis court, two outdoor fireplaces, a koi pond, vegetable gardens, a two-bedroom guesthouse (with a kitchenette), a one-bedroom poolhouse (with a kitchen), and staff quarters. You simply have to have staff quarters.
