Rob Lowe, who you know and love from his teenage heartthrob days in The Outsiders, and his more recent roles in The West Wing and Parks and Recreation, recently listed his home in Montecito, California, for a whopping $47 million, Elle Decor reports. The expansive property sits on 3.4 acres of land and offers delightful views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains.
Designed by architect Don Nulty, landscape architect Mark Rios, and feng shui master David Cho, the home exudes both East Coast traditionalism and West Coast modernity. Many aspects of the massive home would lead you to believe it was located in the southern countryside, rather than the beachside city of Montecito, located in Santa Barbara, California.
Among the 20 rooms that are found in the home, there are six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a home gym, multiple dining and living areas, sprawling patio spaces for outdoor entertaining, and a covetable wine cellar. A pool house with a full kitchen and bedroom, alongside a separate two-bedroom guesthouse makes this home a haven for overnight guests. With a championship tennis court just outside, it's safe to say they'll always be entertained. It's hard to imagine why anyone would be tempted to leave such a stately, luxurious home, but Lowe and his wife believe the timing couldn't be better. “With our boys now out of the house, we’re looking forward to our next real estate adventure,” he said.
