Prince Harry and Meghan Markle bought a lavish 18000 square foot property which is spread across 5.4 acres. They moved into the house last month after spending the lockdown period in Beverly Hills Mansion. Taking such an expansive property as their first home is big news for the couple and their fans. In recent times, they sued the paparazzi who took pictures of Archie without their permission.
The new home is perfect for their son Archie. As a source told Page 6 that, “Harry has been looking for intimate homes with character” it can be said that they have found a very quiet community. Santa Barbara is one of the wealthiest communities in the U.S. and that is why the pricing of its houses cross the $100M mark at times. One of the spokesperson for the couple has confirmed that, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July of this year. They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbors, as well as for them as a family.”
What is so special about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new Home?
Santa Barbara is where most of the popular celebs live. It is situated in a non-public area. Talking about the mansion bought by the couple, it is a nine bedroom and 16-bathroom mansion. According to Zillow, an American Real Estate Database company, the doorway opens onto a large lane paved with hand-cut Santa Barbara Stone that leads by way of a grand archway of timber to the principal residence. The fundamental home features a library, workplace, spa with a separate dry and moist sauna, health club, recreation room, arcade, theater, wine cellar and five-car storage.
What’s more interesting about this place and location is the fact that now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have neighbours Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres. This mansion was built in 2003 and stands rock solid as one of the most luxurious properties in the entire neighbourhood. There are claims all around that the couple has bought the house with an assist from Prince Charles’s pocket. However, there is no official statement released related to it.
