Rob Lowe’s estate is back with a price reduction after a little over a year on the market. The property known as ‘Oakview’ was listed initially by the brat-packer back in June of 2018 for $47 million. It is now listed with a $42.5 million ask.
The house is located in Montecito, and dates to 2009. It’s a Georgian manor, with a façade that culminates in a dramatic two-story neoclassical portico entryway which is supported by a quartet of columns. The front door is crowned by a leaded glass panel, with a neoclassical pediment above.
The interiors are comfortingly classic, with dentil moldings, crystal chandeliers, wide-plank oak, coffered ceilings, and tongue-and-groove accumulating into a living style that is nicely balanced between formal and cozy. Built-ins, period light fixtures, and neoclassical fireplaces enhance the feel of the home.
The home’s footprint is considerable: it extends to about 10,000 square feet, with six bedrooms and 11 baths throughout its two floors of living space. Bedrooms feature private balconies, and there is a second-floor veranda that surveys the Santa Ynez mountains.
The property exterior is a rolling expanse of lawns and carefully manipulated landscaping. A pool with fountain jets, a poolhouse with a guest living space, a competition-grade tennis court, and a two-bed guesthouse are all incorporated within a lot that’s large enough to provide extraordinary seclusion: 3.4 acres.
