Matthew McConaughey is ready to live by the beach. The Academy-Award winning actor just said "alright, alright, alright" to a $7.8 million home on the Big Island of Hawai'i.
According to Realtor.com, the 5,328-square-foot Kailua-Kona property boasts “barefoot elegance." Situated in the Kukio Beach and Golf Club gated community on the luxury island of Ka‘upulehu, McConaughey’s new home is an example of classic refinement.
The 6-bed, 6.5-bath estate features high quality finishes from La Paz stone floors to wide-plank oak, handcarved limestone surfaces, Italian Calacatta marble and quartzite. The finishes are so beautiful, they rival the ocean view.
Filled with doubles, the home includes two primary suites, two pools, two outdoor fire pits, and both indoor and outdoor kitchens. Standing 63-feet-wide, pocket doors open to the great room which offers a stunning vista of the ocean, while the 66-foot infinity pool presents the perfect spot for a relaxing dip. The home also features a wine cellar, media room, bocce court, and an extra room that can serve as a home office or bonus room.
Prominent custom woodwork adds an added layer of coziness to the high-end home. Wood beams contrast the high white ceiling. Teak cabinets, over-sized sliding doors, and a cedar ceiling in the lanai round out the wood accents.
McCounaghey and his family are the first owners of the property. Esperanza Residence LLC bought the one-acre plot for $1.65 million in 2018, and invested nearly $3.8 million into the construction of the home, tapping architect Paul Bleck for its luxe design.
First spotted in the island in July of 2020, McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves, have been frequent visitors of the island. The Brazilian-American model and Dallas Buyers’ Club star were pictured on a boat ride by the Sun after donating 80,000 masks to first responders. From his visit in July, to his October memoir release and December home purchase, it’s safe to say McConaughey did as much as one could with 2020.
