Gwyneth Paltrow and her second husband Brad Falchuk are nearing completion on their 14K-square-foot eco-friendly mansion in the celeb-favorite neighborhood of Montecito, CA.

The 48-year-old Goop founder and the 50-year-old producer originally bought their four-bedroom, four-bathroom home for $4.9M in 2016 before beginning renovations.

The showbiz couple reportedly purchased the property from Nigerian businessman Kola Aluko after his bank accounts were seized due to his nefarious business practices.  

Finishing touches: Two stairways leading to the body of water have been finished along with a retaining wall around the main home

Aerial images taken Thursday of their two-acre estate reveal their buildings and Olympic-size pool are complete and surrounded by fresh grass and more trees since July 14.

Gwyneth and Brad’s compound was spared from the January 2018 mudslides – which left 17 dead, eight missing, and hundreds trapped inside their homes.

In 2017, Paltrow and Falchuk’s neighbor Michael MacElhenny complained to Page Six that the extensive renovations ‘created an uproar with neighbors on all three sides.’

The neighbors were said to be especially outraged over the property only being ‘lowered a foot’ rather than ‘eight feet’ – blocking their views of the ocean and skyline.
