Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have been married for nearly six months, but the pair still does not live together — as per the Poosh founder herself. But that unusual situation may be changing, because property records confirm the newlyweds have together shelled out for their very first joint home. Us Weekly first reported the big buy.
The house of choice was Conan O’Brien’s oceanfront getaway in the low-key beach city of Carpinteria — just south of Santa Barbara and Montecito — which popped up for sale over the summer, to great fanfare. Kardashian and Barker paid $14.5 million for their casually cool new digs, a notable discount off O’Brien’s $16.5 million asking price but still well above the $7.9 million the veteran TV host paid for the premises seven years ago.
O’Brien gave the house a significant remodel (“down to the studs,” according to the listing) during his ownership. Equipped with two cozy bedrooms and just one bathroom, the 1950s beach shack offers roughly 1,000 square feet of living space, plus a lower level with a bonus room, ample storage and an attached carport. There’s a kitchen with granite countertops and premium stainless appliances servicing a combo living/dining room with a metal fireplace and unobstructed ocean views through walls of glass.
The living room opens to a big wooden deck perfect for al fresco dining, and both bedrooms share a balcony with ocean breezes and whitewater views.
In addition to the relatively modest main house, there’s also a two-story detached guesthouse with two separate bedroom suites, ideal for a live-in staff member or visiting family members, plus a living room and kitchenette with a breakfast bar. Attached to the guesthouse is a two-car garage with a Tesla charging station, and there are big driveway gates for privacy. The nearly half-acre lot includes 50 feet of ocean frontage, and the two structures are surrounded by a tropical jungle of lush foliage that includes upwards of a dozen mature palms and bountiful bougainvillea plants.
Some of the Kardashian-Barker clan’s nearest new neighbors include Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Kevin Costner and George Lucas.
O’Brien and his wife have upgraded to a significantly larger, $23 million estate elsewhere in Carpinteria, and they still own their longtime main residence in L.A.’s Pacific Palisades. As for Kardashian and Barker, they each own a big mansion in the same Calabasas gated community — “We’re only a block apart!” as Kardashian likes to remind her fans — and Kardashian also has a $12 million desert vacation home in La Quinta’s Madison Club.
