Finally, after months of house hunting in LA’s most beautiful neighborhoods, the ex-royals, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, have settled on a mansion in Santa Barbara for $14,650,000.

It may be a surprise to some that they didn’t choose Beverly Hills or Brentwood, but there is a considerable amount of privacy to be had in Santa Barbara and it’s a far quieter community for the two to raise their 1-year-old son, Archie.

Santa Barbara is just 90 minutes north of Los Angeles and many celebrities seeking to avoid the attention that LA seems to give them, are coming to places such as Santa Barbara.

The home is allegedly in the neighborhood of Montecito. It’s an 18,000 square foot home with 9 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms. It boasts beautiful rose gardens, an olive grove and a teahouse.

Celebrities like Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Rob Lowe and others currently reside in Santa Barbara.
