Kevin Costner lists Home for Sale

Kevin Costner’s sprawling Southern California coastal estate is on the market for $60 million. The 10.25-acre property is on a bluff in Carpinteria, approximately 10 miles outside of Santa Barbara. The property features unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean, the Santa Barbara mountains, and several nearby islands. Residents also get exclusive access to a quiet beach and a path for horseback riding.

The property’s sole structure is a “modest house,” according to Tim Hoctor, co-listing agent for the property and a friend of Costner’s, as reported by Mansion Global. Costner reportedly ditched past plans to build a bigger residence, a guesthouse, and a pool; the existing home has just two bedrooms and one bath. Still, the breathtaking photos of the estate more than make up for the mystery of the Padaro Lane house itself. ¬†Judging by the sweeping pictures provided, the grass seems to go on forever, and the ocean and mountain views are stunning.
