MONTECITO – Jeff and Susan Bridges’ Tuscan-style estate in Montecito, Calif., has sold for $15.9 million.

There’s sentimental value here as the home is where the Bridges raised their three daughters. The empty nesters no longer need such a big home, at 9,593 square feet, it’s one of the most impressive mansions in the Santa Barbara region.

The home boasts a remarkable view of the Channel Islands, a strand of island gems in the Pacific ocean.
