Rob Lowe Montecito House
The Rob Lowe Montecito house is absolutely one of the most beautiful Celebrity homes. The house is called Oakview and is a classic Georgian-style home on the market for $47 million. Lucky new owners will be neighbors with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Oprah Winfrey.
I like Rob Lowe and have followed him since his St. Elmo’s Fire days to West Wing, Parks and Recreation and more. I just read that Rob Lowe is returning to television in 2018. He will produce and host a cool new competition series. “Mental Samurai.” It is like American Ninja with mental challenges.
In 2013, I featured another Celebrity Montecito home- Drew Barrymore’s Estate in Montecito where she and Will Kopelman got married in the backyard. Sadly the couple got divorced in 2017.
Rob Lowe’s estate is gorgeous and is very different from the general Mediterranean architecture in the area.
The house sits on just over three acres. The main house was designed by architect Don Nultry, built in 2009 and encompasses 10,000 square feet. There is also a two-bedroom guest house, one bedroom pool house with staff quarters, an outdoor kitchen, pool and spa, and a tennis court with observation areas.
Two beautiful terraces overlook the lush landscaping and from almost any location one can enjoy sunsets over the Pacific.
A nice close up of the veranda that stretches across most of the length of the home.
The house is stunningly beautiful inside and out.
Montecito is a favorite retreat area to live, away from Hollywood. It is 80 miles northwest of Los Angeles, between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains in Santa Barbara County. It has spectacular hillside views, nearby whale watching, and beautiful weather.
The more we see the better it gets. The floors are reclaimed oak.
An enviable walk-in pantry with floor to ceiling storage.
A laid-back coastal style family room with board and batten walls and a large bay window seat!
Gosh, this is kind of a screened-in porch type place that is a morning room with a table and fireplace.
French doors from the kitchen open to this outdoor living area.
An elegant and dramatic his and her powder room.
Dramatic and graceful staircase continues the black and white theme seen throughout the home.
The library with entertainment area opens to the upper veranda.
One of two baths in the master suite has this oversized tub tucked into a bay window. I want it all including the white lounge chair too.
This is one of the nicest walk-in closets with glass doors, a window for light and beautiful marble top island.
Rob Lowe and his wife Sheryl think of everything it seems. This is a fun guest area with views of the ocean and a door to the upper decks.

Luxurious Screening Room
Oh gosh, there is even a commercial kitchen for a team of cooks.
Wine, Yes Please
An elegant powder room with a floating vanity!
We have to see the pool again and then the pool house that is a beautiful architectural mirror beauty of the main house.
The pool house living area and completely charming dining room and kitchen plus the bedroom.
In addition to the main house and pool house is a guest house living area with a fireplace, two bedrooms, and a kitchenette.
Rob Lowe’s home is tastefully done and is one of my favorite Celebrity Homes. I really love all 6 bedrooms, 11 bathroom, inches of this house.
