Looks like Hollywood heartthrob Matthew McConaughey has found a new place for him and his family to continue L-I-V-I-N in style. The breathy-voiced Lincoln pitchman recently purchased a dreamy Hawaiian estate sited on the western end of the Big Island in the small town of Kailua-Kona for $7.85 million, as was reported by Realtor.com.
McConaughey’s new digs are located within the private and oh-so-ritzy Kukio Golf and Beach Club community, which bills itself as offering some of the “finest luxury real estate in the State of Hawaii.” The family’s latest purchase — which is brand-spanking-new, having been constructed in 2020 — was designed by Kona-based architect Paul Bleck who seems to have built a number of homes within the gated community. Set on just over an acre of grassy, flat land, the estate does not have direct ocean access, but it does boast dazzling views of the Pacific. The peaceful residence measures in at a very roomy 5,328 square feet with six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. Listing materials describe the estate’s ambiance as being akin to a “tranquil setting reminiscent of the world’s leading 5-star resorts.”
The contemporary Hawaiian plantation-style home is decked out with all of the luxury amenities expected of a home at this price point and, interestingly enough, there are almost two of everything — two master suites, two kitchens (one indoor and one outdoor), two firepits and two pools — so there’ll be no squabbles over a lack of room in this house! The interiors of the home are characterized by impressive custom woodwork, hand-carved limestone and wide-plank oak floors and oversized sliding doors that let the tropical sunshine stream in.
