Academy Award-winning actress, Natalie Portman has recently purchased a serene and relaxing estate home in Montecito, in the Santa Barbara County on the California coast. The marvellous compound was designed by locally-based architect Barton Myers and features a glass, steel and concrete structure.
The 10-acre home is billed under $6.5 million and is comprised of a series of ultra-modern accommodations, including a state-of-the-art kitchen, four bedrooms and five luxurious bathrooms. Another fascinating aspect is its location seeing that is nestled in a green oasis along the Pacific coast.

The massive property was built into the side of a hill that gently leads the way to the ocean. Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millipied, as well as their two children, will be able to enjoy mesmerising views over the Pacific Ocean due to the striking floor-to-ceiling windows. The house also contains a backyard with a swimming pool, a rock garden, plenty of tree cover as well as a generous entertainment area with an outdoor fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, a protected bar and dining area and several patios. A truly special and well-appointed scenery fit for an acting legend like Portman.
The Montecito area is renowned for housing many celebrities due to its low crime rate and prestigious schools. Jeff Bridges, Gene Hackman, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are a few of the celebrities who have lived in the county. Oprah is actually a current resident of the community, having bought, in early 2016, one of the most valuable estates in the area.
The starlight thespian was recently nominated for yet again another Oscar for her stellar performance as Jacqueline Kennedy, in the motion picture Jackie, directed by Pablo Lorraín. If you are looking forward to seeing the actress in action, Portman is set to star in Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller Annihilation as well as in Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John Donovan, both features scheduled to premier in 2018.
