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.

"H.P. Faye had the vision and the finances to purchase not one but two lots in the best part of the Bay," according to the listing, which is held by Neal Norman of Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers.

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.
