Adam Levine Joins the Crowd in Montecito, Buys $22.7M Mansion

The Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and his wife, the supermodel Behati Prinsloo, have purchased a storied estate in the ever more crowded celebrity enclave of Montecito, CA.

The couple paid $22.7 million for the expansive compound, known as El Miraval, Variety reported.

The estate had been and off the market for years, and its asking price had never budged from $2reThe spread includes a total of nine bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms, in a series of buildings including a Spanish Revival main house, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a one-bedroom cottage, and an apartment over the detached, five-car garage.

The 12,000-square-foot main building features European-style interiors with wood beams and arched windows, and offers large living spaces built for grand entertaining.

The living room, with a fireplace and exposed beams, opens outside from French doors. Multiple al fresco options include a lovely loggia with a fireplace and seating, a picturesque terrace, patio, and garden.

A large kitchen contains a huge island, dark wood cabinets, and built-in storage shelves. The master bedroom features a fireplace, a balcony, and an en suite bathrooom with a separate tub. Other perks include a home theater and wine cellar.

In addition, the grounds include a tennis pavilion, pool, pool terrace, putting greens, and manicured lawns.

The listing also offers some renderings to suggest updates to the interiors—which could use a refresh. Suggestions include trendy light fixtures, a white palette, sleek furniture, and voilà!

Quite possibly, the longtime coach for “The Voice” will be tempted to put his signature stamp on the place.

The “Moves Like Jagger” singer does have some real estate moves of his own. After picking up a Beverly Hills mansion in 2018 for $34 million, and reportedly sinking $7 million into a remodel, he sold the updated estate to his fellow luxury real estate aficionado Ellen DeGeneres in 2019 for $45 million.

She and her wife, Portia de Rossi, then made some further changes, and recently listed the same home for $53.5 million. After a little more than two weeks on the open market, the property has already found a buyer. 

Levine also owns a resortlike residence he purchased in an off-market deal in 2019 for $32 million from Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, after their divorce.
