Santa Barbara property documents show the sprawling nine-bedroom and 16-bathroom mansion in upscale Montecito was bought on June 18 for an eye-watering $14,650,000. The 18,000-square-foot home sits on 5.4 acres of land and immaculately clipped hedges border the estate's stone-pillared entry gates. 

According to Zillow, the entrance opens onto a wide lane paved with hand-cut Santa Barbara Stone that leads through a grand archway of trees to the main residence. The main house includes a library, office, spa with a separate dry and wet sauna, gym, game room, arcade, theater, wine cellar and five-car garage.

The estate has sweeping lawns, tiered rose gardens, tall Italian cypress trees, blooming lavender, century old olive trees, a tennis court, tea house, children's cottage and a pool. It also boasts a two-bed, two-bath guest house, perfect for Meghan's mother Doria, who is acting as one-year-old Archie's nanny. Doria has already been to the house, TMZ reports.

According to Zillow, the house has been updated with the latest Lutron lighting systems and Crestron, including iPad control. 

The property is located on a private road in a luxury and secluded estate in Montecito. Almost every house in the multi-million dollar neighborhood is designed for privacy, with long driveways and large gates. 

Royal insiders say Harry and Meghan purchased the home with help from Prince Charles. 

A source said: 'Charles had been keen to help out and put his hand in his own pocket to assist. He is devoted to both his sons and any time he can assist them he always will'. Clarence House declined to comment.
