Rob Lowe’s Extremely Gracious Mansion Is Back on the Market

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.


Bedrooms: Six.
Bathrooms: Eleven.
Size/Acreage: 10,000 square feet / 3.4 acres.
Price: $42.5 million.
Listing agents: It’s co-listed with Eric Haskell of the Agency and Luke Ebbin of Compass.


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.

The interior design, by Kyle Irwin, is traditional without being fusty.

This is presumably not the catering kitchen….

The main loggia looks like it belongs in a very fancy inn.
