Instead of moving to the East Coast, Jessica Alba purchased a home in Beverley Hills that mimics the aesthetic of the Hamptons. For $9.9 million, the actress and cofounder of
The Honest Company scored a stylish 8,829-square-foot mansion with seven bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, plus a charming one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest cottage.
Click through to tour the sprawling 1.85-acre property with envy-inducing backyard views.
With the beige panelled exterior and gambrel roof, the home’s Hamptons influence is evident from the exterior.
Upon entrance, it’s easy to see why Jessica fell in love with this space. A formal two-storey foyer makes a grand first impression with high ceilings and black and white tiles underfoot.
Arched walkways and half-panelled walls add a stylish architectural note inside.
Two sets of double French doors flank the fireplace in the main living area, flooding natural light into the space and making indoor-outdoor entertaining easy. Panelled ceilings create a country vibe.
Despite the adjacent kitchen, the main living space features a built-in bar for entertaining guests.
The kitchen is classic with white Shaker-style cabinets and marble countertops. A wrought-iron chandelier and industrial benches offer a bistro feel.
A breakfast nook tucked away by the window with slip-covered chairs plays into the East Coast aesthetic.
Here’s another sitting room with expansive French doors.
Many fireplaces can be found throughout the home, including this one in the dining room. A crystal chandelier formalizes the rustic table and linen chairs.
Since the dining room is closed off, a mirror placed at the end of the table makes it seem larger in size.
The library features interesting architectural detail, plenty of windows and a fireplace, making it the perfect envelope for Jessica to add her own style.
Up the stairs, a tall vertical window lets natural light in and bounces off the crystal chandelier.
An airy master bedroom features a private terrace and dual walk-in closets.
Oh, and a massive ensuite with a double shower.
Although not a full private terrace, this bedroom lets the outdoors in thanks to double French doors.
The guest cottage boasts one bedroom, one bathroom and a three-park garage.
The cottage bedroom boasts a narrow balcony perfect for letting in the fresh California breeze.
The backyard is a dream, with a pavilion that has an outdoor kitchen and barbecue.
There may not be a nearby beach like in the Hamptons, but this luxurious pool will do.
Just look at that Beverley Hills sunset.
