Dr Laura Schlessinger – the popular and controversial talk show host – has listed her serene oceanfront estate in Santa Barbara for $ 22.85 million.
Schlessinger told Mansion Global that his reason for selling this magnificent property is simple: it is downsizing.
âYou’ve heard of the movie ‘Honey I’ve Shrunk the Kids’, well, I’m shrinking my world,â Schlessinger told Mansion Global.
The Main House is a nine bedroom, 8.5 bath estate spanning nearly 8,800 square feet of elegance. There is also a pool house and a tennis pavilion.
âStunning resort grounds with ultimate entertainment areas and ocean view patios surrounded by natural beauty and ubiquitous views,â wrote the list on Terry Ryken, the agent holding the list. âYour own private sanctuary with pool, spa, lighted north-south tennis court, pickleball court, putting green and plenty of lush green lawn space for playing badminton, croquet or volleyball.â
Inside the main house, the amazing elements include a formal dining room, a refurbished gourmet kitchen, a first floor with four bedrooms, a game room with a wet bar and a media room.
The master suite is on the second floor and has a private patio that overlooks the scenic Pacific Ocean. There is also a secondary suite with its own balcony.
Above the garage is a one bedroom guest apartment with a separate entrance.
Dr. Schlessinger has an internationally syndicated radio show, “The Dr. Laura Program” which can be heard on XM Satellite Radio. The relationship guru was struck by controversy after he repeatedly said a racial slur on the air in 2010, CNN reported.
