$33.5 MILLION WILL MAKE YOU ROYAL
The former Prince of England and Duke of Sussex, Harry Charles Albert David, and his wife, Meghan Markle, made media headlines in recent years when they relinquished their status within the Royal family to live a “simpler,” more “private” existence in America.
A new Netflix documentary, Harry & Meghan, details that decision and their associated "struggles." And the gorgeous Montecito mansion, where the show was filmed, is now on the market for a cool $33.5 million.
Nestled in the Santa Ynez Mountains, the Mediterranean-style, six-bedroom home sits on over 2 acres of well-manicured land, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
With 13,600 sq. ft. of living space, the Montecito mansion marries beautiful outdoor elements of the California coast with an elegant interior, which includes exposed wooden beams, French doors, and floor-to-ceiling windows sporting views of the water and surrounding mountains.
Utilizing an open-concept, the main rooms are perfect for entertaining -- especially the Great room, which comes equipped with an oversized crystal chandelier and massive arched windows.
In the chef’s kitchen you’ll find custom-designed hardware sitting within Italian Carrara marble countertops, geometric lighting, and Sub-Zero appliances. The kitchen flows into a cozy family room with a built-in fireplace, and a circular wooden chandelier complimenting exposed wooden beams.
The primary master suite has vaulted ceilings and a private soaking tub and outdoor shower with a fireplace. The home also sports a full wet bar, a secret library, a home-gym, an expansive game room, and a private theater.
The grounds are filled with lush landscaping, and a paved, private driveway leading to a gated entrance. Romantic walkways and year-round flowers line the property, with soaring palm trees and ivy wrapping around the main house. A private, one-bedroom, one-bathroom bungalow guest house sits atop the three-car garage, and features vaulted bamboo ceilings and plantation shutters. You’ll also find, an outdoor pool & spa with cabanas, a vegetable garden, citrus orchards, and even a chicken coop.
Harry & Meghan moved to Montecito in 2020 after their break from the royal life. And after living in Tyler Perry’s home for a few months, they decided to purchase their own home for some $14.7 million. A notable California escape of A-listers, Montecito has also been the home to stars such as Oprah Winfrey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, and Ariana Grande.
Netflix’s Harry & Meghan logged more than 81 million viewing hours in the first four days, and that increased to 97.7 million hours for the entire series by week two; making it one of the most popular shows on the streaming-platform in 2022.
