Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts has officially sold her oceanfront home in Hawaii for $16.2 million, or roughly half of the original asking price of about $30 million.

Situated on 231 feet of beach frontage on the crest of Kauai’s Hanalei Bay, the two-house compound was most recently offered for $19.5 million, according to Pacific Business News. Roberts bought the property five years ago for $13.375 million, public records show.

Named the Faye Residence for former owner Hans Peter Faye, a prominent sugar plantation manager, the two-plus-acre estate includes a main house and a detached guest house. The two plantation-style structures combine to offer seven bedrooms and four bathrooms with nearly 3,800 square feet of living space.


The red-painted main house, built in the early 1900s, has beamed ceilings, a galley-style kitchen and walls of windows. Each structure has a covered porch that faces the ocean.

The 49-year-old Roberts won an Oscar in 2000 for her lead role in “Erin Brockovich” and garnered nominations for the films “August: Osage County” (2013), “Pretty Woman” (1990) and “Steel Magnolias” (1989).

This year she appeared in the films “Mother’s Day” and “Money Monster.”
