When he bought himself a $1million luxury home in the Hollywood Hills, Ashton Kutcher was still a man about town, enjoying his bachelor life. Less than a year later he met Demi Moore and embraced married life and playing stepfather to her three daughters.
Now, six years on, Ashton has finally let go of the last few ties to his pre-Demi life by putting his home up for sale. The 32-year-old actor just listed the Hollywood Hills house as for sale with an asking price of $2.6million. The home was originally 2,002 sq ft and was expanded to 3,235 sq ft during renovation. The modern two-story design utilises an open-floor plan and contains four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Woods used on the floors, stairs, wood beams and trim are made of mahogany, Brazilian cherry and recycled old redwoods.
All new: The custom built kitchen has sliding doors that open out onto the pool area. Open plan design: The house also has four bedrooms and five baths. To make the most of the agreeable California weather, it was built with plenty of outside access points through large glass sliders. Out back is an 'inviting and private', tiered water escape as water from an infinity-edge spa spills into the infinity-edge pool and lastly, into an infinity-edge waterfall. Beyond the pool and spa is lush, exotic greenery with walkways and stairs throughout the nearly one-acre property.
Other fun amenities for any bachelor include a wine tower room, which holds 210 bottles, plus a temperature-controlled wine cooler and a professional home theatre. During his rise to fame in his role as Michael Kelso on That 70s Show, Kutcher purchased this Beverly Hills-area home in 2004 for $1 million, but then he and his father, Larry, extensively renovated and remodelled the property from the ground up. The father-son duo hired Duncan McIntosh to design the craftsman contemporary.
A portion of the sale price will be donated to the Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA), a non-profit organization set up by the couple that raises awareness about child sex slavery and helps in the rehabilitation of the victims.
However, it turned out to be the bachelor-pad-that-never-was because soon after, Kutcher got married. Kutcher revealed: 'This house is close to my heart, since my dad and I spent a lot of time planning, visualizing and renovating the entire property.'
The home has been staged by five Los Angeles designers for the tours and all proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit DNA. Additionally, items from the decorated rooms will become available for sale on Gilt Home February 12 through the 14, with a portion of these proceeds also benefiting DNA.
