This Northeast-inspired residence in the Post Office neighborhood of Beverly Hills is being offered for sale by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. The couple would like to see a return of $13.995 million on the sale of the property.
The house and lot are both substantial—the 7,351 square foot traditional sits on over half an acre of land. The property is also very private, and very charming; the landscaping is lush, varied, and intensely green, and the back yard is engineered to feel cozily familiar. It succeeds.
Inside the home, a somewhat less effusive mood prevails, but the emphasis is still on familiar design elements, and the comfort they provide. The living style has an overtone of formal traditionalism, with hardwood wainscoting and paneling, custom millwork, plank oak floors, a step-up dining room, and marble fireplaces in the living room and the office/library. But an alcove window seat in the master, a fanlight window in the kitchen, and built-ins in the family room balance out the rigidity with the comfortingly down-to-earth.
The home’s amenities offer a good survey of upscale living—the list includes a gym, sauna, and wine room—but the covered porch overlooking the backyard might sell the home as much as any other detail or design element. Mature trees, lawns, stone walls, paths and patios, and a pool and spa with a stone sunlounge complete this unusually fine escapist property in BHPO.
Kutcher’s latest projects include B. J. Novak’s Vengeance, and The Long Home, also starring James Franco and Josh Hartnett. Kunis’ latest work includes Breaking News in Yuba County, and Four Good Days, co-starring Glenn Close.
