We’ve all seen actress Julia Roberts on the big screen. Now you have a chance to go behind the scenes and peek at her beautiful Hawaiian estate. Roberts just listed for sale her seven-bedroom, four-bathroom home in Hanalei, HI, for $29.9 million, according to Pacific Business News.
Walking up to the home, you’ll know right away you’re in the Aloha State—and not just because of the magnificent views of Hanalei Bay and the lush, green mountains of Kauai. The home’s tropical design and laid back island vibe are enough to make you want to bust out your grass skirt. Under the classic Hawaiian gabled roof there is a large covered porch, perfect for watching the sun set over the Na Pali Coast.
Inside, the home has spacious rooms under impressive open-beam ceilings, providing a soothing ambiance that will allow you to unwind after a day of surfing the waters of Hanalei or hiking the Powerline Trail. If you prefer being cozy indoors, the home has wide wall-to-wall windows to let in all the island sunshine.
The home sits on one of the island’s last remaining large double lots. In case you find the home’s 3,792 square feet a little cramped, it is approved for expansion up to 9,000 square feet.
While it’s not a global A-lister, the home has achieved a bit of local fame. Known as the Faye Property, it was purchased by sugar cane magnate Hans Peter Faye in 1915. The businessman also purchased adjoining lots to expand his own little slice of the beach. The lots were never broken up, and owners of this property will enjoy twice as much beachfront as their neighbors.
The surrounding neighborhood is no slouch either. Roberts may be moving out, but the new property owners will have plenty of opportunities to rub elbows with other famous folks. The home sits on Hawaii’s celeb-laden North Shore, where Pacific Business News reported Chuck Norris and Mark Zuckerberg have recently purchased property.
And although she’s paring down her real estate portfolio, Roberts has no intentions of slowing down. She recently wrapped up filming “Secret in Their Eyes,” which is scheduled for release in October 2015. Roberts is currently filming “Money Monster,” a thriller about a Wall Street TV personality.
