Maroon 5 leader Adam Levine purchased former Rob Lowe’s californian house in Montecito, Santa Barbara. The property has multiple living-and-dining areas, eleven baths, professional theatre, wine room, tennis court, swimming pool and spa.
In addition to his singing career, Adam Levine has earned millions in real estate profits and does that often, at least seven homes since 2012. Married to South African supermodel Behati Prinsloo in 2014 and now with two children, the couple continues on their buy-and-flip homes projects and have purchased the house owned by actor Rob Lowe on its sprawling 3.5 acres (14,163 square meters) for $52 million.
After Rob and his wife, Sheryl Berkoff, sold their family home to healthcare executive Jack McGinley in 2020 for $44.5 million, McGinley sold the property to Levine and Prinsloo and made a $7.5 million profit in just two years.
The 10,000-square-foot (929,030 square meters) Georgian Colonial-style home was built in 2009 and designed by architect Don Nulty to resemble Lowe’s Charlottesville, Virginia birthplace. The decor is a bright-white interior filled with California sunshine and the Pacific Ocean views.
The home has six bedrooms, eleven baths, large open formal rooms, a huge white-and-cheerful family kitchen, a separate catering kitchen, wine room, multiple living-and-dining areas, professional theatre, and an expansive master suite.
Additional details like vaulted ceilings, handmade crown mouldings, custom millwork, and view-framing windows add architectural charm. Also included is an office, library-music room with bar, and a family room.
There are nine indoor fireplaces throughout the house, one in the master suite. Outside is a full outdoor living room with a wood-burning fireplace, koi pond, large swimming pool, a tennis court with a viewing area, rolling lawns, and gardens large enough for team sports with mature oak trees and a vegetable garden. Also on the grounds are a swimming pool and spa, a two-bedroom guest house, a one-bedroom pool house with staff quarters, and an outdoor kitchen.
Behati Prinsloo became famous in 2009 as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and often opened their fashion shows on the runway. She also appeared in Maroon 5’s 2018 music video Girls Like You with her husband, their oldest daughter, and many female celebrities.
Adam and Behati’s most recent business venture is a tequila company, Calirosa, which went on the market last year.
As frontman for Maroon 5, Levine has won numerous awards: three Grammys, three American Music Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, and a World Music Award. He has taken a break from almost ten years of work as a coach on The Voice.
