Adam Levine pays $52 million for Rob Lowe’s former estate

Rocker Adam Levine and his model wife Behati Prinsloo have forked out US$52 million for Rob Lowe’s former mansion.

According to The Dirt, the sprawling Montecito estate was designed by Don Nulty and built in 2009 for Lowe and his family.

Lowe sold the nearly 3.5-acre estate in 2020 for US$44.5 million to private equity executive Jack McGinley, who has now sold it to Levine in an off-market deal.

The mansion boasts 929sq m of living space, with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, plus three powder rooms. The property also includes a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse, as well as a pool house with another bedroom and bath.

The interior of the home features gleaming wood floors, intricate moldings, and custom millwork throughout with the living and family rooms spilling out to the yard through French doors.

There’s also a stainless-steel catering kitchen, a second-floor games room that doubles as a casual library, and a home theatre with state-of-the-art technology.

Outside, the covered porches extend along the back of the house, offering stunning views of the ocean.

The grounds include a cobblestone-accented motor court, an outdoor living room with fireplace, a prairie-sized expanse of lawn, a meditative water feature, an elegant swimming pool, and a sunken tennis court overlooked by two viewing platforms.

Levine and Prinsloo have been busy flipping properties in recent years, having sold a Beverly Hills mansion to Ellen DeGeneres for US$42.5 million and currently listing their US$57.5 Million Chic Palisades Compound, which the pair purchased from Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.
