It’s hard to think of a better place to hang out for Matthew McConaughey than the Kaupulehu Residence—a brand-new $7,845,000 home on the big island of Hawaii.
Brimming with “barefoot elegance,” the home is part of the Kukio Beach and Golf Club community in Kailua-Kona, according to the listing.
The residence features six bedrooms and 6.5 baths, and the McConaughey family will be its first official residents after the purchase in December 2020.
Esperanza Residence LLC bought the 1-acre lot for $1.65 million in 2018 and invested nearly $3.8 million into the construction of the home. It was designed by Kona architect Paul Bleck.
High-quality finishes in the home include floors of La Paz stone and wide-plank oak, and surfaces of handcarved limestone, Italian Calacatta marble, and quartzite.
There is also extensive custom woodwork, including teak cabinets, oversized cedar sliding doors, and the cedar ceiling in the lanai.
The luxe home is full of doubles, including two primary suites, two pools, two outdoor fire pits, and the indoor and outdoor kitchens.
On the singular side of things, there is one wine cellar, one media room, one bocce court, and one office/bonus room.
One of the home’s most striking features is the 66-foot infinity pool complete with spectacular beach views. Those views can also be enjoyed from the great room with 63-foot-wide pocket doors, which allow breezes to flow through the house.
The home initially went on the market in July 2019 for $7,995,000. The actor strolled in with an offer in late 2020.
As a resident of this exclusive gated community, McConaughey will have the opportunity to join the Kukio Golf and Beach Club, which features two golf courses, two clubhouses, a sports complex, and an indoor and outdoor spa. The community is located near the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and Kona Village–Rosewood Resort.
McConaughey, 51, first blazed onto the scene in 1993, when he appeared in the coming-of-age comedy “Dazed and Confused.” He won a Best Actor Oscar for his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club,” and recently published a memoir, titled “Greenlights,” which debuted at No. 1 on the the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list.
