Another go in Montecito luxe market for Adam Levine, Behati Prinsloo
Singer, model bought flipped another manse in toney Santa Barbara County enclave last year
Musician Adam Levine and model Behati Prinsloo have spun the real estate listings – again – with the purchase of a $52-million estate in Montecito.
The Grammy winner and producer and his supermodel wife bought a 10,000-square-foot compound near Santa Barbara from Jack McGinley, a healthcare-focused private equity executive, and his wife, Julie, in an off-market deal, Dirt.com reported.
The 3.4-acre Oakview estate, designed by architect Don Nulty, was built in 2009 for “9-1-1: Lone Star” actor Rob Lowe, who sold it to the McGinleys in October 2020 for $45.5 million.
The six-bedroom, 11-bath main house has 20 rooms, a koi pond, rose gardens, 800-square-foot pool cabana and views of the Pacific Ocean. It also comes with a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house, and a one-bedroom, one-bath pool house.
The Georgian, East Coast-inspired manor has gleaming wood floors, intricate moldings, and custom millwork throughout. It includes elegant rooms with French doors, a huge-eat in kitchen, a stainless-steel catering kitchen, plus a games-room/library and home theater.
Broad covered porches line the back of the white clapboard home, with ocean views.
The grounds include a cobblestone-accented motor court, an outdoor living room with fireplace, a large lawn, water feature, swimming pool, and a sunken tennis court overlooked by two viewing platforms.
The Montecito purchase comes one week after Levine and Prinsloo listed their 16,000-square-foot estate in Pacific Palisades for $57 million.
That first Montecito purchase came just a few days after luxury real estate flippers Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi listed Levine’s former mansion in Beverly Hills for $54 million. Levine sold them that property in 2019 for $42.5 million.
