Julia Roberts' Simple Yet Spectacular Kauai Home is for Sale
Julia Roberts has listed her Hawaii estate on the garden island of Kauai for $29.85 million, Pacific Business News reports.
The actress bought the Hanalei property with more than 200 feet of beachfront for $13.4 million in 2011. It is called "The Faye Estate" for the sugar plantation manager who bought it in 1915, four decades before Hawaii became a state.
The two-acre property has views "mauka and makai," meaning toward the mountains and seaward.
The 3,792-square-foot home was built in 1946 and has seven bedrooms and four bathrooms. Building may be permitted for up to 9,000 square feet for more buildings and a pool.
"Today, almost all of the lots on Hanalei Bay have been subdivided, and many of the original large estates are gone," the listing says. "The Faye property is one of a few parcels that retain the large, open feel and the only one that is available for sale."
Chuck Norris and Mark Zuckerberg bought in the area recently, as did a hedge-fund partner, according to Pacific Business News.
