Buying real estate in Montecito is no small deal. The Santa Barbara, California neighbourhood is home to some of the most beautiful stretches of coastline and mountain views. It’s no wonder celebrities like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Ariana Grande and Ellen DeGeneres have bought homes in the idyllic region.

Jennifer Aniston is the latest A-lister to join the clan. The Friends star recently bought media titan Oprah Winfrey’s house in the area for a whopping US$14.8 million, according to the New York Post.

So, let’s take a peek inside the new abode …
