McCaw bought the property for $8.3 million exactly 10 years ago, and made plenty of renovations in that time. The 5 bed, 6 bath is subtle in all ways aside from its location right outside of Santa Barbara California.

If you aren’t already aware, McCaw is a cellphone pioneer and telecom Billionaire who has set the record for most expensive car ever sold when he paid $38.1 million for a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO.
