If at first you don’t succeed, lower the price and try again. A year after actor Rob Lowe and jewelry designer Sheryl Lowe listed their Montecito mansion, Oakview, for $47 million, they’ve switched brokers and cut the price by $5 million.
Located on prestigious Picacho Lane, the compound was designed by Don McNulty and completed in 2009. From the 2018 Los Angeles Times article about the first attempt: “The main house is comprised of 20 rooms, including a den/music room with a bar, family and commercial kitchens, an office, a screening room and a gym. The master suite has one of nine indoor fireplaces and a lavish bath for a total of six bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms. […] The manicured grounds, which include two outdoor fireplaces, fountain features and a koi pond, were done by landscape architect Mark Rios and feng shui consultant David Cho. The guesthouse adds two additional bedrooms plus a kitchenette. Staff quarters, a bedroom and a full kitchen make up the pool house.”
A long driveway—the lot is off the street—leads to the impressive entrance.
