Drew Barrymore’s Former Montecito Home Is on the Market for $9.95 Million
The sprawling estate where Drew Barrymore wed ex-husband Will Kopelman has hit the market for a whopping $9.95 million. Tucked in the idyllic village of Montecito, where stars ranging from Rob Lowe to Natalie Portman have owned properties, the six-bed, eight-bath estate is a piece of architectural history.
Designed by Chester Carjola, a star of the Santa Barbara design community, the 1937 traditional-style home underwent a significant renovation in 2016. However, it still maintains the classic features it was originally built with.
Located on a quiet road between the Upper and Lower Villages, the 6,640-square-foot estate is set on a two-acre spread featuring stunning mountain views. Step into the foyer and continue into the huge living room, an ideal spot for entertaining guests. A large kitchen features a double oven, stylish black-and-white checkered floor and big center marble island with a breakfast bar and breakfast nook, perfect for busy families. There’s also a large formal dining room with oversized windows that allow light to stream in. A cozy library has a large fireplace and plenty of built-ins, while a sun porch is the perfect spot to enjoy the view of the Santa Ynez Mountains.
But perhaps the crown jewel of the estate is the main floor master suite, equally lavish and accommodating. In the bedroom, a comfortable fireplace sits in one corner alongside a seating area, while there’s also a spa-like bathroom, and expansive dressing room filled with storage. A wood-paneled home office is the perfect spot to get some work done during a hectic day.
Seeing as this is Montecito, the estate features exquisite outdoor areas as well, allowing residents to enjoy the natural beauty of the Santa Barbara area. Step outside to the large stone patio, perfect for enjoying a meal outside in the warm California weather. In the expansive backyard, rolling lawns feature lush, mature fruit trees and exquisite landscaping, complete with beautiful flowers and intricate walkways. There’s also a detached 382-square-foot guest house, as well as a six-car garage.
Barrymore, who bought the estate back in 2010 for $5.705 million, sold it in 2013, the LA Times reported.
