Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and his model wife Behati Prinsloo have plunked down a whopping $52 million for Oakview, a sprawling Montecito estate. According to
Dirt, the custom-designed 10,000-square-foot Georgian Colonial-style house was built in 2009 for actor Rob Lowe, and was designed to recall the homes in Rob’s birthplace of Charlottesville, VA. Adam and Behati are proving to be adept real estate flippers. In 2018, they sold their Beverly Hills mansion to Ellen DeGeneres, and the sprawling Pacific Palisades compound they bought from Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck in 2018 is now up for sale for $57.5M.
Set on 3.5 acres, Oakview contains six bedrooms and eight full baths — plenty of room to raise the couple’s two children, Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio, 4.

Set in the picturesque foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountain, Oakview boasts views of the bright blue Pacific and the Channel Islands. The grounds also include a two-bedroom guest house and a pool house. The back of the main house has porches that look out to the Pacific — while other outdoor features include a motor court, an outdoor living room with a fireplace, a pool and a sunken tennis court.
The clapboard house is a heady mix of East Coast trad and Southern charm. The exterior has classic touches like double-height Doric columns and a cupola.
Gleaming wood floors, intricate moldings and custom millwork give Oakview its traditional look. Both the living and family rooms lead out to the garden through French doors. The bright white interior captures a breezy, California vibe and the living room fireplace is one of nine in the home.
The formal dining room has a large fireplace and is accented by traditional dentil moldings and panelling.
A cheerful eat-in family kitchen is supplemented by a stainless-steel catering kitchen.
A huge island provides a spot to grab a bite or help out with the cooking. White cabinets, stainless appliances and mid-tone wood floors are a timeless combination.
The breakfast room offers views of the ocean and a cozy fireplace.
Architectural details like vaulted ceilings, handmade crown moldings, custom millwork and expansive windows can be seen throughout. The home’s second-floor games room does double duty as a casual library.
Glass doors to the terrace create an indoor-outdoor vibe in the family room. A musician like Adam may want to ensure the grand piano stays!
The principal bedroom has a deep window seat with loads of built-ins to hold favorite books and memorabilia. The room has its own terrace which overlooks the lawn and views of the Pacific on the horizon.
The principal bathroom is lavished with marble, especially the tub surround, for a classic, traditional look.
Models like Behati typically need plenty of space for their designer wardrobes, so a huge walk-in closet adjacent to the principal bedroom is a must-have. A pretty bird’s eye window lets in sunlight, while glass doors protect clothes from dust and offer a clear view of what’s inside.
The generous wine room houses special vintages in floor-to-ceiling shelves.
The home theater is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment including a super-wide screen.
Broad covered porches extend along the back of the house and offer ocean views as well as plenty of comfy seating.
A full outdoor living room with a wood-burning fireplace keeps things toasty when the temperatures drop at night.
In addition to a large swimming pool, the property boasts a koi pond, tennis court, and vegetable garden. A two-bedroom guest house, one-bedroom pool house and outdoor kitchen accommodates guests and are ideal for entertaining.
A prairie-sized expanse of lawn is large enough for team sports. The house no doubt draws its name from the striking mature oak that makes the home look like it’s been there for generations.
At night the water in the pool and spa glow like emeralds. Pergolas shade lounge chairs when the sun shines.
