There will always be a deep curiosity about the private lives of celebrities. What do they do when they’re not in front of a camera? How do they act? And, most importantly, how do they live? Lucky for us, sometimes we are able to take a peek into the home of a well-known entertainer and get a sense for their lifestyle. In this way, us normal folks are able to live vicariously in the lap of luxury. In this instance, we are able to step inside the Montecito estate of Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman. The 3,991-square-foot home from architect Barton Myers is perched on a hillside near Santa Barbara and features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a stunning kitchen. Step inside, take a look around and see what else this estate has in store.
The interior of the home is, of course, gorgeously appointed. Unique coffee tables like this one are just piece of the luxurious design puzzle.
It’s no question that the ocean view and open design are the most compelling part of this 10.4 acre estate, but without comfortable reading chairs like we see here, it would be that much harder to truly enjoy the view.
The open concept home manages to have many welcoming places to gather, including this lovely indoor dining area perched underneath an oversized dining pendant.
A Harvard grad, Portman certainly wants a space in her house to relax with her books, and this library is the perfect cozy example of home decor for book lovers.
This breathtaking view of the Pacific could easily have been the deciding factor when it came to make the final sale.
