This Santa Barbara County backyard is pretty fancy. Fit for royalty you might say. From the tiered rose garden, you can see the manicured grounds and century old olive trees. The waves of the ocean roar just a few yards away. It’s the perfect place for a young boy and his younger sister to play and grow up, far from politics and the pressures of public life.
They will teach the kids, Archie and Lilibet, to swim in their large lap lane swimming pool. They will share the outdoor children’s cottage and an expansive play area. Mom and Dad can hob-knob with the rich and famous.
The former royals bought the Santa Barbara County home a few years ago for $14.7 million. It’s in the city of Montecito, California, 2 hours north of Los Angeles.
The home was built in 2003. It has 9 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms and sits on 7 acres.
The Backyard Bay includes a large pool, a tennis court, a chicken coop and rose gardens, as well as a roomy terrace with a wood-fired stove and barbecue.
