Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got a lot for the $ 14.7 million they spent on their new home in California.
Never-before-seen photos, from a now-deleted ad on the Giggster rental site, show a villa that has been appropriately advertised as an “Italian villa,” complete with stone-columned entry gates and sculpted hedges.
Lush vegetation is everywhere: manicured lawns, Italian cypresses, centuries-old olive trees, lavender in bloom and multi-level rose gardens. Also on the property there is a tennis court, a children’s cottage and a guesthouse.
Inside there is a library lined with built-in bookshelves, an office, a spa with a separate wet and dry sauna, a gym with a stripper pole, a game room, a game room, a theater, a cellar and a garage. for five cars.
A real estate agent who spent an hour there described the 5.4-acre estate as a place “designed for someone who never wants to leave the house,”
The guest house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms – an ideal accommodation for Meghan’s mother, Doria, who is Archie’s loving grandmother, one year old.
No one is quite sure who owned the house, but speculation swirling at the time of the August sale has tagged Russian tycoon Sergey Grishin. The purchase price was over $ 25 million in 2009.
Real estate agent Brett Buschbom told the Daily Mail: “I walked through this house and an hour later I am walking out like ‘Wow’, the whole bottom floor looked like a resort with steam room, massage room, sauna, Jacuzzi, full bar. , game room and one of the most amazing cellars and that was just the basement. “
