Natalie Portman recently purchased a new home just outside Santa Barbara.
Celebrities are just like us. They shop for groceries, put their pants on one leg at a time, and buy sprawling modern homes on acres of land on the California coast. To be honest with you, I haven’t actually purchased any sprawling modern homes yet, but I feel like this is my year.
Portman’s new home, located in Montecito, California sits on 10.4 acres of land, and fills out an impressive 3,991 square feet of living space. The home is super modern, designed by California architect Barton Myers using glass, concrete, and steel.
The four-bedroom, five bath home sits nestled in dense landscaped vegetation on a hill that leads down to the ocean, and features a retractable roof, floor-to-ceiling windows, a swimming pool, rock garden, outdoor fireplace, and several patios with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean.
Portman owns another home in Los Feliz where she lives with her husband and children, so this house was likely intended as a getaway home.
Maybe celebrities aren’t just like us. When I want a getaway, I go sit by the Hudson river and watch trash float by.via ]
