Actor Cameron Diaz and musician Benji Madden are the new owners of a six-bedroom, nearly 11,000-square-foot mansion in Montecito, California.
The deal closed last week for $12.67 million, and the buyer was a trust tied to the star couple, according to records with PropertyShark.
Sitting on 1.77 acres in the gated community of Ennisbrook, the estate boasts both ocean and mountain views, according to the listing, and has extensive outdoor amenities including a pool and spa, a pool cabana, an outdoor barbecue and grounds landscaped with hedges for added privacy.
The home itself is designed for indoor-outdoor living with French doors opening up interior spaces to the property’s extensive grounds, according to marketing materials. There are multiple primary suites, including one on an upper level with dual bathrooms, walk-in closets, a bar and a private balcony.
In addition to a gourmet kitchen with a large island and a separate “butler’s kitchen” with a walk-in pantry, the home is designed with a media room, a dining area and a variety of “flex rooms,” per the listing.
The home was listed for $15.75 million in March of this year, according to records, and closed on May 13, listing records show.
