Natalie Portman’s House
Posted in: Celebrity Houses

Without a doubt Natalie Portman is the new “It” girl in America. She’s not only in a huge movie, Black Swan as a ballet dancer, but she also just got engaged with the choreographer for the movie Benjamin Millepied, and she’s expecting her first child! I’m pretty sure Natalie feels that 2010 has been a great year for her.

A little more than a year ago, Natalie moved from a trendy Manhattan condo (which she sold for almost $ 7 million) to this beautiful home in Los Angeles suburb Los Feliz. The house that she paid $3.25 million for was built around 1930 with exquisite craftsmanship & detail, has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a charming courtyard entry to the main foyer, beautiful wood floors, not one but two guest houses (ideal for when her parents and family come over from the East Coast), 4,866 square feet, spectacular stone loggia, gorgeous swimming pool and 18,000 square feet of lushly landscaped grounds.

Here is where Natalie Portman currently lives (photos are a bit small since I wasn’t able to find bigger ones but I really wanted to show this house):

Backyard

Sparkling pool in a romantic setting.

Courtyard

Very welcoming.

Foyer

Beautiful millwork.

Formal Living Room

Old-world charm. Very sophisticated.

Den

The older owners used this room as an office.

Kitchen

Wonderful windows and that range is for a serious cook!

Cabinets

This kitchen is very solid and I really appreciate the beautiful wood used here.

Media Room

I love this room! The windows are gorgeous and that seating area is so inviting!

Sunroom

It’s a little bit too dark, but the beams and windows are fabulous.

Master Bedroom

Nice arched door.

Master Bathroom

Very charming with the arches.

Loggia

Peaceful and private, a must for any celebrity.



As you can see, these pictures were taken when the house was on the market, just before Natalie bought it. I’d love to see what she has done with it since she purchased the place. I think there was  room for improvements and I am sure Natalie added her own personality and style to this lovely house.

Let me know your opinion. Leave a comment! :-)

    I’m like you I wonder how she changed it up. It seems a bit sparse furniture wise but the original owners may have already moved out when it was on the market. I like the architecture. Hope life is being good to you Luciane.

    I so appreciate the craftsmanship in this house. It would not be mine if I had the money, but it is lovely.

  3. Hi Luciane, some days ago I saw Natalie Portman in “Closer”. Beautiful house and location. Hug

    Bom dia, Luciane!
    A arquitetura é linda, mas acredito que a Natalie Portman, tão jovem, não combina com tanta madeira escura, talvez tenha reformado a casa e dado mais leveza aos espaços internos.
    A fachada é fora de série.

  5. Beautiful home!

    My little sister’s best friend is a Natalie Portman look a like. She gets mistaken for her all the time in restaurants. It’s pretty funny.

  6. I wouldn’t have pictured her in a house like that! It’s so “brown” with all that woodwork and looks so formal. I guess I imagined her in a more modern place. Interesting!

  7. Hey Julia,

    So nice to see you here! I totally agree! It’s shocking! This house doesn’t seem to suit her because she seems to be so delicate, so feminine. But that’s very interesting to me.. maybe she’s totally different than we think… :-)

    This house has magic I think, and the pool is exactly what I would want–so natural in its setting. I would seriously lighten up the interior, but that millwork is fabulous.

  10. Beautiful home for a beautiful girl! I love the formal living room and the kitchen especially. You always find beautiful images, Luciane.
    Have a wonderful day, friend.

  11. Love the house, especially that large great room! I think the master bedroom needs some sort of a “pop” though, because that’s the only room without a really spectacular feature.

    AND she is now the face for Dior. I think this is a beautiful classic home with great bones that clearly needs work. She has fabulous style and taste and I’m sure will find innovative ways to make her own. The big question is who she will hire to decorate! Will she hire a west coast decorator like Ruthie Somers or Windsor Smith or will she sign up an east coast classic – we’ll see!!

  13. It is a gorgeous house – beautifuuly put together – but I hope she doesn’t find it too imposing for her. She’s still quite young and it must be daunting to have to decorate a place wiht its own mark so firmly on it already.

    Thank you sooooo much for your gorgeous email. It totally made my day with your thoughtfulness.

    I’m not ashamed to say that it made tears well up in my eyes…..or was that just a speck in my eye? :-)

    I agree, when I was first scrolling through the pics I thought it was very dark and almost too “old” for her. But when you said these were taken while it was on the market, that made a little more sense. I hope she has put some “cheer” into it!

  15. What a big home!! I love the backyard, stunning.

    Thank you for your sweet comments…

  16. It does seem dark…for California and for a young woman. But great bones. And it must have “called” to her. Fun post!

    Wow. What an incredible home. It looks a bit like a castle!

    I think it has lots of character, but needs a little tlc. I feel certain it has been transformed into a beautiful space – would so love to see what she has done! Hope your weekend is wonderful!!

    With a young son the POOL needs a fence around it for sure ! The house is nice but not a HOME yet !!. Natalie will need Two large guard dogs , well trained ,German Shepherds. They will keep the unwanted out !
