Katy Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom have snapped up an exquisite compound in the wealthy enclave of Montecito, California for $14.2 million.
The couple, who welcomed daughter Daisy Dove in August, purchased the stunning ocean view home from former Duracell and Chrysler CEO C. Robert Kidder, who owned the estate for over 20 years, according to Variety.
The couple’s gated property consists of multiple structures sitting upon 8.9 acres of land and will be situated among Hollywood’s elite and even royalty with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie, 17 months, as their neighbours.

The former royals bought a $14.7 million mansion in the secluded and leafy, gated estate outside Montecito, Southern California in June and joined an affluent town where homeowners include Ariana Grande, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey.
Orlando and Katy will join the exclusive neighbourhood, with their own sprawling property having its own gated compound, where visitors can access the gorgeous home through a long, oak tree-lined driveway that lands at the main house.
Katy and Orlando may have dropped a pretty penny for the property, but the complex has undergone a significant price drop since it was first listed in the spring of 2019 for $20 million in spring 2019.

After months on the market it was reduced to $16million, before the A-list couple snapped it up nearly $2million under asking price.
Inside, the home boasts multiple bedrooms and sitting rooms with sublime views of the ocean blue.
The office space embraces a vintage aesthetic with dark, wooden accents throughout the room.

Born in Santa Barbara, it’s no wonder Katy was keen on snapping up this breathtaking property by her hometown.
On top of this new estate, the couple are also attempting to sell two other homes.
Katy has put her Beverly Hills guesthouse on the market for $8 million, while Orlando has an $8.999 million bachelor pad in the same community that has been on-off the market for the last two years, according to Variety.

The new home is just the newest addition for the couple, who have recently welcomed their first child together.
Katy gave birth to their daughter Daisy Dove in August, and the new parents announced her arrival through UNICEF.
‘We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,’ the couple announced.
The couple will be near Meghan and Harry’s home which sits on 5.4 acres of land and immaculately clipped hedges border the estate’s stone-pillared entry gates.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are warned a wild black bear is prowling near their £11million mansion
- Officials say the black bear has a den on Ranchos San Carlos near the Sussexes’ home, which was disturbed when it was recently sold
- The animal is believed to have been attracted to the area by Harry and Meghan’s wealthy neighbours’ chicken coops in Montecito
- The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says the bear is looking for food and poses a significant risk to life
- Soon after moving into the California home in early July, the large black bear was reported yards from Oprah’s estate
- The animal, which can weigh up to 39st, now appears to be back, with California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman Tim Daly suggesting the bear is being attracted by the chicken coops
- Experts are hoping it will soon make its way out of the luxury estate

Property listings say the home took nearly five years to build and included a library, office, spa with a separate dry and wet sauna, a gym with a stripper pole, game room, arcade, theater, wine cellar and five-car garage.
The entrance to the property opens onto a wide lane paved with hand-cut Santa Barbara Stone that leads through a grand archway of trees to the main residence, according to Zillow.
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-bedroom, 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.
The home’s seller is thought to be Russian tycoon Sergey Grishin who bought the ‘palatial’ mansion for more than $25million in 2009 and had tried to sell the home for up to $34million before eventually accepting a loss.
