This Beverly Hills traditional owned by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher is back on the market this winter with a substantial price chop. The property’s most recent trip to the open market began last spring, when it appeared at $14 million. Its ask currently stands at $12.3 million.
The charming estate offers a fine sense of cohesion, with the house sporting a stone and clapboard façade, and the rear developing beautifully into a leisurely and very private backyard packed with cozy design elements—a stone patio with a freeform pool and a stone bar, a set of steps rising to a plateau of lawn, a double staircase rising in turn to a covered porch, and another set of steps following the gradient of the property amid what is an intensely green and leafy landscaping style.
The back of the house is marvelously expressive, but controlled, and that design sensibility translates to the interiors, where warmth and period details are tempered with an understated hand. Hardwood paneling and wainscoting, keystone arches, French doors, oak floors, fireplaces—one with a dandy green marble surround—and the occasional ornamental flourish all strike the eye on a visual tour. The dining room puts the formal into the house most forcefully—it’s a neoclassical-inspired room.
The house contains five bedrooms, including a master with a fireplace and a lengthy window seat.
Kutcher’s upcoming projects include The Long Home, with James Franco, and Vengeance, with B. J. Novak. Kunis’ coming releases include Breaking News in Yuba County, with Allison Janney.
