Farm house

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis make their debut at a gorgeous rustic LA farmhouse

The term “Hollywood power couple” is used quite liberally, referring to two public figures who receive more attention than their actions actually warrant. In the case of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, it’s just for the money…beyond the acquisition of their bucolic farmhouse in Los Angeles.

Ashton Kutcher distinguished himself in the world of venture capital through his company A-Grade Investments. He has notably financed a few little-known start-ups such as Uber, Airbnb, Spotify, Shazam, Soundcloud, the “insurtech” service Lemonade, and many others. According to his team, the biochemical engineering student-turned-model-turned-actor-turned-serial-entrepreneur has seen US$30m / AU$35m in investments grow to US$250m / AU$320m in assets.

It also doesn’t hurt the bank account when you were earning US$20m/Aus$26m per season for two and a half men. As of today, Ashton Kutcher has an estimated net worth of over US$200m / AU$257m (conservative considering he gave away some assets after divorce from Demi Moore).

Mila Kunis is not really outdone either. As a pop cultural item on the big and small screen, the Ukrainian transplant’s main form of income today revolves around Seth McFarlane’s long-running Fox animated series, family guy. Voiced by the ever-unlucky Meg, Kunis would take home a hefty $225,000 / AU$288,000 per episode.

Family Guy has been on the air for over twenty years and is fast approaching its 400th episode. As of today, Mila Kunis has an estimated net worth of over US$75 million / AU$96 million. Suffice it to say, both parties have come a long way since their days as cast members of That 70s show, in more ways than one.

“We wanted a house, not an estate”, explains Mila Kunis to Architectural Summary.

“We wanted the house to feel like an old barn, something that had been there for decades, then turned into a house. But it also had to feel modern and relevant. Building a house from scratch is not It was going to make or break us.

“When we looked at each other’s paintings, 90% of the images we selected were the same, and most of the houses we pinned were designed by [Howard Backen]says Ashton Kutcher.

“Howard is like a great software designer, someone who approaches design as an emphasis on function. A software designer wants to get people where they want to be with the fewest clicks.”

“Howard wants to take you where you want to be with the fewest doors and obstacles. He also knows that there are certain places where you want a barrier to mark a threshold and create a bit of friction.

Nicknamed KuKu Farms by Kutcher and Kunis – who obviously takes “Ku” from both surnames – this French-inspired neoclassical residence is a thing of great pleasure. From the reclaimed wood, floor-to-ceiling windows, to the freestanding barbecue pavilion by the pool, this is the kind of place where life is allowed to move a little slower; and that’s okay. Unlike the simpler aspects of vernacular design, with the help of Vicky Charles of Charles & Co., the details are very luxurious. Like an extravagant 10-foot-long crystal chandelier commissioned by Kutcher on a trip to India.

“We thought it would be fun to have this incredibly opulent thing hanging in a barn… It sort of takes the piss out of the property,” Kunis says in direct reference to “the improbable crystal confection.”

At Ashton Kutcher with Mila Kunis also happens to be a durable compound. Here are some of the features that make the green rug beautiful in addition to chic:

  • well on the property to irrigate the land
  • cornfield planted + harvested
  • soil prepared for agriculture
  • house powered entirely by concealed photovoltaic panels (“the house’s solar panel produces much more energy than the property needs”)
