You could be Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's neighbor if you have $30M to spend on California's 'Palace of Versailles'

YOU could end up living next to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry if you manage to snag the $29.5million “Palace of Versailles.”

The incredible five-bedroom, 10-bath mansion is located in the Birnam Wood community in Montecito, which has become popular among other celebs such as Oprah, Ellen Degeneres and Adam Levine.

The mansion spans 12,000-square feet and sits on two acres of land.

The home comes with imported French marble countertops in the kitchen and all throughout the estate as well as gold bathroom fixtures and chandeliers. 

The marble alone is worth millions of dollars, along with brickwork from Italy. There is also a woodwork design inspired by the Titanic movie for the lower-level large closets.

Snagging this estate also means being the owner of a Swiss bank vault in the butler’s pantry to protect valuables. There is also a wine cellar that can hold 200 bottles of wine that you can get to via an underground tunnel.

Other amenities include a full-service bar, a large home gym, sauna, steam room, swimming pool and putting green.

Outside the property is a formal garden with a 1,000-year-old Carrara fountain.
