Halle Berry’s $5 Million Beverly Hills Hideaway

by hookedonhouses on February 3, 2010

Halle Berry-Gabriel Aubry

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry (shown here with Gabriel Aubry, her French-Canadian boyfriend and the father of her daughter Nahla) bought this Mediterranean-style home in Beverly Hills for $2.275 million back in 2001. It’s small by Hollywood standards–only 2 bedrooms and 2 baths–but I can definitely see why it appealed to her. The home sits on a lovely and secluded 1.3 acres and looks like a sweet little hideaway to me.

The house is currently on the market for $5 million. Rumor has it that Halle Berry’s mother has been living here recently.

According to the listing:

One-of-a-kind rustic & private Old-World Mediterranean graced by magnificent gardens, fountains, al fresco dining & seating areas, fire pit and sumptuous stone spa in a verdant canyon setting. The vibe is majestic, yet casual with vaulted heavy wood-beamed ceilings, wide-planked wood floors, detailed custom-made ironwork, stone-carved fireplaces, a dramatic staircase, banks of French doors/windows & a master suite tub carved out of stone. Cook’s kitchen.

The kitchen may be a little too narrow for people who cook a lot:

How many throws can you spot? I think at least 3 of them may be the same one moved strategically around the house for the photos. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that. We all appreciate an agent who makes an effort!)

If you buy this house, then actress Amy Adams might be your neighbor. She reportedly purchased a renovated ranch down the street.

Hi Julia, Well, the staircase is lovely, and it is unique, but not my cup-o-tea. The ranch house in the neighborhood that was linked to this post was wonderful though.

Oh Julia, I love this house and I could definitely live there…LOL! Don’t think it’s quite in my price range though! It is so different than the norm for a Hollywood star. Thanks for showing it.

That front door! I just can’t get over it. Though the rest of the home is not my style, it works and it is nicely done. The kitchen may require a makeover but perhaps I am too persuaded by the white kitchens of the moment! Marija

Beth@The Stories of A2Z February 3, 2010 at 9:27 am

I laughed out loud when you commented on the throws. I was thinking, “hmmmm, that looks like the exact same throw in each pic,” and then you spoke my thoughts :). It’s gorgeous and I would gladly take it if I had an extra 5 mil to blow.

Gerry February 3, 2010 at 9:45 am

I really like this house. I can see why it might be a little small now with no nursery for her daughter but definitely a cute house. Actually, I loved the kitchen. We might think it is small since we actually cook for our families, but in Hollywood I don’t hear of that many stars who actually eat at home anyway so anyone interested would go in and see the beautiful counter tops and top of the line stainless appliances and would be very pleased. I’m glad to see that, even though at the time she bought this she could very well have afforded a huge mansion, she opted for a really pretty and cozy home.

Lou Cinda February 3, 2010 at 9:57 am

I LOVE this house, though it may be better suited to a single or a couple….but still…I would take it in a hearbeat!

Love that view off the balcony!

I think you’re right–looks like the same throw in those pics.

I love your blog. I’m fascinated with spaces and how people use them. Thanks for sharing your eye on these amazing structures!

Oh, I love this house. I like smaller, cozy houses. Looks like a happy house.

Amy February 3, 2010 at 10:41 am

I sooo love this house. I feel like I could curl up on the couch and go to sleep. And for 5 Mil, I would expect a bigger kitchen- but it’s probably more realistic that I’d be eating at fabulous restaurants every night :D

Christine February 3, 2010 at 11:29 am

What a beautiful home! I love that it’s small and secluded. That white throw definitely makes the rounds in the photos! I would’ve thought the kitchen would have been more open, but it’s functional.

It’s an absolustely beautiful home–I could very easily live there. And I do love the front door as well. Maybe I could do that on my house! Very, very pretty.

It would be perfect for moi!! I love the old world charm, and the light streaming in!

Morning T February 3, 2010 at 12:10 pm

I absolutely LOVE that house and could even handle the narrow kitchen! The front door, huge entry window and stone/brick surround, fireplace in master and that light fixture- OMG so much to love. The crystal chandie in the bathroom and that tub- wow.
Thanks for sharing.

I love, love, love the little balcony off the master bedroom! It’s a beautiful home. I like it better than the giant ones that seem like you would need a GPS to find your kids.

Thanks for another great post!

Such a sweet house. I love it!! It’s a little to small for my crew though. I like how open to the outside it is. I crave outdoor space with trees and growing things.
.-= Rachel´s last blog ..Yeah Right =-.

devil February 3, 2010 at 1:24 pm

This is lovely except for the bathroom. It’s hideous and I’d redo it completely five minutes after moving in.

I like the kitchen…but PLEASE get rid of the stainless steel :) Small kitchens are easier to cook in, so I think it’s just the right size.

Lori-Anne February 3, 2010 at 1:28 pm

I don’t usually like celebrity homes, but this one has sure got my covetous juices going! Oh for $5 million extra dollars just kicking around!

Halle’s house is adorable. It’s details are incredible. I checked out the house Amy Adams purchased. The inside is charming and has so many details. I would have never guessed it looked like that from the outside photo of the home.

Kim February 3, 2010 at 3:30 pm

When I saw the front, I didn’t think the rest of the house was going to be all that nice, but I was wrong. It isn’t my style, but I like it. This house is really cozy and I could see myself curling up on the couch in the greatroom. I wouldn’t want to live here, but wouldn’t mind it being a vacation home.

Polly February 3, 2010 at 4:33 pm

Well I love it! It isn’t “just” my style, but I so appreciate homes that are tastefully done, no matter what style it is! I loved the front door and floors in the entry … and lots of other things too!

Thanks for picking this one to share Julia! :)

Hi Julia just when I thought it can’t get any better You Did It Again thats it I have to win the lottery and move in my dreams…. I love the stairway the kitchen the bathroom the everything (did I leave anything out?) Thank you Julia you made my day and I thought looking at the groundhog yesterday was fun anyway must go back to my daydreamin….. Regards Esther from Sydney…..

Melanie February 3, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Just a fun FYI….When Halle Berry married David Justice of the Atlanta Braves my uncle married them in David’s home. He said that she is more beautiful in person than on tv or pictures. I knew that they were getting married before everyone else did. I wonder if I could have sold that to the tabloids? I’m joking. I wouldn’t have done that. My uncle wasn’t suppose to tell anyone. That was a long time ago but still a fun story.

I adore this. I’ve been offline for a bit – blogoverwhelm – but I just had to reach out and say thank you for finding and showing us this one. It reminds me of my godmother’s house on a lush green mountain in Greece; same courtyards, wood, terracotta, light and details – even a kitchen that’s small at one end but has a table at the end out of camera shot. We helped her build it, from the foundations to the stone walls in the yard. I don’t do envy, but my goodness if I won the lottery, it would be very tempting to buy a dream home like this. It’s good to be back, Julia; your blog is one of those that feels like home.

Halle Berry’s house is so gorgeous I could cry. What a dream! I love all the vines outside, like a fairytale cottage. She probably has a gardener………………. I’d love to wake up in that bedroom with the birds singing, swing open the window and see that view. Almost as pretty as New Jersey! Thanks for the fun, Julia and I love your new chest. Could your Mom adopt me?

Ivan W. Berry March 5, 2010 at 5:38 am

I had always been wondering if Halley Berry ever live in Canton, Ohio because I had family there long time ago, and also my father had lots of brothers which could had been her father.

Penny March 31, 2010 at 10:42 am

During an interview recently I heard Halley say that if she was not an actress she would be an Interior Designer. I wonder if she designed this home. I love it. Who says a house has to be a mega mansion to really enjoy it. I came from a family of 8 and we lived in a 1500 sq ft house with one bathroom. Somehow it worked. Times as certainly different now. In many ways I’m glad of that but I do miss the good old days at times.

I must convey my affection for your kindness in support of men who really need help on your concern. Your special dedication to passing the solution all around came to be incredibly functional and have consistently encouraged regular people much like me to achieve their pursuits. Your important suggestions signifies a great deal to me and somewhat more to my peers. Thank you; from everyone of us.
