Even a surfer dude needs to lay down roots eventually, and actor Matthew McConaughey has laid his down in his home town of Austin, Texas after buying a beautiful 9-acre estate.
The Lincoln Lawyer star, fiancée Camila Alves son, Levi, and daughter, Vida, are expected to soon be moving into the three-story, 10,800-square foot home, which, with 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, has plenty of room for more pairs of little feet.
Built in 1997 and located in the Rivercrest area of the Lone Star state’s most cosmopolitan city near Lake Austin, the McConaughey mansion was originally listed at $6,600,000, according to Zillow.com, but the Tropic Thunder star is thought to have picked it up at the bargain price of $4,000,000.
Described as “Spanish Mediterranean,” the extensive outdoor area boasts a long, oak tree-shaded gated drive with two circular motor courts, garaging for at least 4 cars and, for water enthusiasts, 7 consecutive boat slips down the hill on the lake.
Inside, the Texas influences are evident in the rich wood details, marble counters, spiral staircase, and beige tiled floor.
Even though he is creating a stable family home in his new purchase, McConaughey’s signature Airstream trailer has been spotted parked in the driveway so he won’t have any trouble hitting the road if he needs some alone time.
