A home fit for a duchess! Meghan Markle may now reside in Santa Barbara, but her old house in Los Angeles is also nothing to scoff at.
The Suits actress’ former pad, located in the San Fernando Valley, hit the market for $1.8 million — later dropping to $1.75 million in January 2020 — and the interior is as chic as we would expect. The 2,000 square foot abode is filled with gorgeous granite, trendy neutral tones and a lush backyard space.
She’s now living like royalty (literally) with her husband, Prince Harry, and their son, Archie, after previously fleeing the U.K. for Canada and then L.A. A source told In Touch the mother of one has “no regrets” about taking a hop, skip and a jump across the pond. “She looks and feels amazing.”
The couple also share daughter Lilibet, whom they welcomed in June 2021.
Not to mention, it sounds like they’ll be living just as large. An insider told Closer Weekly the abode is “perfect” for their 15-month old and is “much more private” than Tyler Perry‘s mansion, where they previously resided. “The house has a Mediterranean vibe to it — French doors and archways and a pool,” the insider revealed. “It’s beautiful and spacious, but not too over-the-top.”
Though the pair — who moved to their new location in July 2020 — are still “settling in” and haven’t “ventured out much,” they’re looking forward to checking out the “local hotspots,” a separate source previously dished to In Touch.
The couple announced the groundbreaking decision to step back as senior members of the royal family and become “financially independent” while still working with Queen Elizabeth and the palace in January 2020.
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” they expressed in a lengthy caption on their now-defunct Instagram, adding that they would split their time between North America and Great Britain. “It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.”
Though Meghan may miss her gorgeous L.A. home from time to time, it sounds like she’s living the high life in Montecito!
