Maroon 5 Star Adam Levine has just purchased a stunning colonial style Montecito home for the grand total of $52 million.
The singer and his wife Behati Prinsloo, a Victoria Secret model, have acquired quite a large Californian estate. Spread over 3.5 acres, the home is a whopping 10,000 square feet.
Nor are they the first famous owners of the house called Oakview. Actor Rob Lowe previously owned the property in 2020 before selling it for $44.5 million.
Levine’s new six-bedroom, eleven-bathroom Santa Barbara County residence was designed by architect Don McNulty during Lowe’s tenure as a tribute to the actor’s antebellum-style Virginia home.
Originally sold by Lowe through The Agency, the apartment is a chic mix of modern and traditional decorating ideas. Crisp white walls and dark hardwood floors give it a rich, luxurious feel.
The space soon opens up to numerous formal living areas decorated in crisp white paint and trendy vaulted ceilings.
Paneling ideas also adorn the walls, skillfully framing the colonial-style artwork and leather and wood furniture. Many of the lower rooms have stunning views of the garden and the sea in the distance.
Perhaps the most striking room on the ground floor is the enviably large kitchen. The oversized island immediately steals the focus – although there’s still room for eight and a separate walk-in pantry.
And there is not one, but two kitchens in this house. A stainless steel catering kitchen is also available to the family.
Handcrafted crown molding and custom woodwork feature throughout the home, along with a whopping nine fireplaces.
And upstairs, white marble and dark wood floors dominate, especially in the bathrooms and the spacious walk-in closet.
Some of the more striking features of Levine and Prinsloo’s new abode are a huge alfresco living room, a charming (and fully equipped) wine room, a cinema room, and a koi pond at the foot of the expansive grounds.
Inside the cinema room is a cozy mix of dark furniture and walls and lighter ceilings to create just the right atmosphere for a night snuggled under the (Hermès) covers.
But when the Levine-Prinsloo family wants to venture outside, they have enough to keep them occupied.
A wraparound deck wraps around the home on the lower level and offers stunning views of the vast gardens and LA mountain ranges.
Behind the porches lies a sunken tennis court with not one, but two viewing platforms. And of course next to the outdoor living area is the Californian essential – a swimming pool, perfect for cooling off.
Despite its majesty, there’s a chance this won’t be the forever family home for the famous couple. Levine and Prinsloo are fans of flipping houses – they recently bought and sold several houses in Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades and another house in Montecito.
