Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis purchased the perfect beach house last year in Santa Barbara for family summer getaways.
Located only 90 miles from their main Beverly Hills mansion, this classic California coastal property is well-suited for the celebrity family of four.
The home sits right on the beach, off a private gated drive, just outside of the pedestrian-friendly town of Carpinteria. It’s only a 15-minute drive north to Natalie Portman’s 10-acre Montecito estate. Movie trivia buffs will realize that Portman has the rare distinction of being the only star to have kissed both Kunis (Black Swan) and Kutcher (No Strings Attached).
Kutcher and Kunis’s six-bedroom, six-bath, beach house has an open kitchen with eat-in bar, high peaked ceilings in the living area, and built-in bunk beds in the kid’s room.
The full walk-up porch offers plenty of space to grill out or to get some sun, while the second-floor balcony provides relaxing waterfront views. A hot tub on the front deck gives the young parents a place to get cozy once the kids have gone to bed.
The home doesn’t appear to need any renovations, but if it ever does, Kunis can dust off the sledgehammer and hardhat she donned for her parent’s condo renovation on an episode of the reality show My Houzz in 2017.
The mile-long Carpinteria coast is a fun beach for families with ample places for tidepool exploring and surf-fishing on the mile-long stretch of sand.
With pleasant and sunny 70-degree weather this time of year, Kutcher, Kunis, and the kids should get some good use out of their charming beach cottage this summer. Chris Palme, a broker for Coldwell Banker in Santa Barbara who specializes in the marketing and sales of residential, luxury, and view properties, says this area is, “the ‘American Riviera’ – an upscale community tucked between the mountains and the ocean offering an ideal Mediterranean climate.”
He adds, “it is no wonder that those who can live anywhere in the world choose to spend much of their time in this idyllic environment.”
Kunis, playing Jackie on That 70’s Show, once said, “If I could run across the beach into my own arms, I would.” Fortunately, for her and Kutcher, neither of them will have to worry about being alone on this beach.
