Don Johnson’s House (sold)

875 Knollwood Dr Montecito, CA 93108


Don Johnson, best known for his role as James “Sonny” Crockett in the top 80’s TV show “Miami Vice” and lead role in “Nash Bridges”, is selling his gorgeous French country style estate in Montecito, California for the reasonable price of $14,900,000. The 11,229 square feet celebrity mansion home spares no luxury detail. From the quality of construction to the thoughtful design, this home is an entertainer’s dream. This celebrity dream home is an extreme mega mansion and one of the most awesome ones in the entire world.

In 2002, Johnson was mixed up in some pretty shady stuff. Stopped on the German border with a Swiss financial advisor in tow, the customs officials allegedly found $8 billion in notes — yes, BILLION in the trunk of his car. Perhaps he was living a dream from his former life on Miami Vice, where something like this would resemble a plot from the show. This thing got pretty hairy and later in 2003 there was an investigation by German customs, because you know, it’s totally legit to be crossing European borders with $8 billion of notes in your trunk. Tabloids quickly picked this up and the thing led to Johnson going on Larry King Live to profess his innocence.

From the listing: “Set amidst a grove of mature oak trees with sweeping vistas of the ocean, mountains and channel islands, this magnificent French Country estate presents an uncompromising lifestyle where casual elegance meets sophisticated charm in an idyllic natural setting. Hidden away on a cul-de-sac behind a private gate, this exquisite home was masterfully rebuilt with the utmost attention to detail and with no expenses spared in quality and craftsmanship.

Enclosed by the hillside and facing out towards the sea, “Shack des Chênes,” as the home is known, fosters a nurturing sensibility for both family and the surrounding nature. Sunlight and views pour in through huge windows throughout the home and nearly every room flows gracefully to the outdoors. As if turning a page in a storybook, the children’s bedrooms open out onto beautiful verdant gardens.”
