Actor and local resident Rob Lowe has just put his 10,000 square foot Montecito home on the market for $47 million.

Lowe and his wife Sheryl have been long-time residents where they've raised their two sons. The home boasts six bedrooms and eight full/three partial bathrooms with a total of twenty rooms.

The "American-style manor" sits on 3.4 acres and was built with Architect Don Nulty and landscape architect Mark Rios, as well as input from feng shui master David Cho.

Views of the home show the best of both worlds in Santa Barbara County. Windows frame the ocean while the pool gazes back toward the Santa Ynez mountains. Many upper-level spaces benefit from balconies or access to an expansive veranda that overlooks the manicured gardens.

The Lowe's described it as a “house perfect for mud boots or high heels” when featured in Architectural Digest. 

The grounds also encompass a two-bedroom guesthouse with a kitchenette, an 800-square-foot pool cabana with a full kitchen and a bedroom, and a championship tennis court with two viewing areas.

Other celebrities owning massive estates in the Montecito area are Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. 

More information on the home is found at sothebyshomes.com

There are no railroad tracks near Lowe's house for homeless to build fires. The tracks are in lower Montecito and, yes, homeless do camp by them. During the Thomas Fire deputies had to tell them to move for their safety.

I wish I had 11 toilets at my house! Certainly would reduce the distance one would have to do the "Penguin Walk" when you have to go #2 really-really bad....you all know what I'm talking about.

And what exactly does this have to do with anything here except his address already given here today and more times than anyone could count by this obsession by Rex. Just give it up...and if you really don't know.... Google search is much quicker.

There does seem to be a higher than normal selling of celeb homes in SoCal lately. Has the Illuminati tipped them off of some impending event? ;-)

Taxifornia. The top 1% pay 50% of all taxes in this state. They are tired of getting ripped off and they know it will be even worse after Gov Brown soon leaves office. A tax and spend super-majority in the state legislature can "tax the rich" without even going to the people for approval. which they grant all the time anyway. The top 1% are leaving. They see no hope for the return of responsible government in this state. Health care for all with $400 billion dollar price tag along Gavin Newsom means it is time to pack up. Who will still want to buy into this state is the remaining wild card.

Even during the financial meltdown (remember that?) while the regular real estate market came to a screeching halt because of the abuses in the mortgage industry the luxury market plodded along as usual. People forget that the system is rigged to protect and enrich the already rich... and the attacks on immigrants is just a canard to take our eyes off the ball ( which is clearly working given the romper room shenanigans going on in DC).

LOL, one wealthy dude tipped off to sell, another wealthy dude tipped off to buy. Illuminati win either way. The Illuminati must be a realtor?

Maybe the $42M price tag is what has it long on the market. It's probably valued at closer to $32M with a $10M "But it was Rob Lowes' house" fee. Some wealthy perp will come around. I'm putting the over/under at $35M. I'm going for the under obv.

Rob Lowe was the whole reason for the Santa Barbara Newspress blowup. He asked the owner Wendy not to publish his address when he was filing city permit papers re: the neighbors concerns re: sight lines, edge too tall, etc., etc. The Newspress staff had always published addresses re: city permits, etc. It led to protests, multiple people getting fired, the Newspress spying on workers computers, a heavy handed depressing environment. Now he glorifies the firemen, the Bucket Brigade, "our community", followed quickly by selling his home in "our community" due to debris flow damage.

you are horribly mistaken, the newspress issue arose from "selective journalism" in not publishing stories of DUI's and other legal issues, being hidden rather than reported. lowes home address, was the least of McCaws infractions.

It may be a very hard sell as it is in the path of potential future debris flows and firestorms. Certainly close enough to all of the recent disasters to make someone who could afford such a home think twice about buying, or offering an extreme lowball offer for living in such a precarious location. There must be some reason it is not selling, and my guess is the location, location, location.

My first thought too. I always wonder when the pics were taken, as I often look at realty sites after hearing about celebrity or big properties. Like the Santa Ynez horse ranch (Arab breeding) that bankrupted a couple. I can't recall their name, and haven't found the property again online. It was/is a dream! Sheesh. No one needs a house that big.

When the house was to be built neighbors complained the size would be wrecking their views. But, as Rob said, it was their "dream house". The dream lasted 12 years. Onward and upward toward another dream!

So true. None of these environmental famous stars are anything close to that. They all pillage all they touch, treat their staff like slaves and run to Twitter and Facebook to be the victims of the fires and floods and the super stars by giving food out or whatever can make them look better. Work in the Serive industry in Montecito. You’ll understand. If you don’t work in this industry.. zip it.

Roger, I thought the same thing as he is well-known as an environmentalist. Reminds me a bit of Mr. Enviro Gore...the one who bought a Montecito "charmer" with five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, six fireplaces, fountains, pools, spas...you know, the kind of place people buy when they are concerned about the environment. Uncle Albert, the energy wasting water hog.
