Oprah Winfrey has some famous new neighbors!
According to DailyMail.com, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently purchased a California mansion nearby the media mogul. And yes, the highlights of the $14.65 million property are definitely worthy of royal standards!
The media outlet reports that back in June, the royal couple snagged the luxe 14,563-square-foot home located in upscale Montecito, a two-hour drive from Los Angeles.
Built in 2003, the multi-million dollar estate boasts fabulous lawns, rose gardens, tall Italian cypress trees, century-old olive trees, a tennis court, a tea house, a children's cottage, and a pool.
Sitting on 5.4 acres of secluded land, the exterior of the home is said to also provide plenty privacy with a long driveway and a large gate.
Other notable highlights of the massive nine-bedroom and 16-bathroom mansion include a library, an office, a spa, a gym with a stripper pole, a game room, an arcade, a theater, a wine cellar, and a five-car garage.
The luxury property—also referred to as the “The Chateau”—also features a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house that is perfect for Meghan's mother Doria, who has actively taken on the nanny role for her 1-year-old grandson, Archie.
Daily Mail reports that the Sussex family purchased their dream home after securing a $9.5 million mortgage. If this is true, that could mean the couple made an estimated down-payment of $5 million towards the mansion.
A source told Daily Mail, that the couple “feel proud to have struck out on their own and they are saying they bought it without any help from his [Prince Harry’s] family.”
The source continued, “They do have a mortgage, but they see this as their own place, free from relying on anyone else – a proper family home.”
Estimated to be worth $43 million combined, we are quite positive the couple will be able to stand true to their goal of being “independent” of the royal family. Cheers!
