Well, almost immediately after putting up our little screed about Lauren Conrad, Your Mama heard from Junebug and Sweet Thing, both of whom have been in this house and who both gave us all the 411 about Little Miss Conrad's new home. We thought the children who care might like a little look see at what rich parents and reality T.V. paychecks can buy.
Well, in truth kids, Your Mama does not know if Little Miss Conrad is purchasing this property with her own money earned from posing for party candids at Roosevelts and Hyde, or if it's being leased for her television show by the production company. We suspect she's purchasing, but we've been wrong before. Although Junebug thinks 2.2 million clams would have been a better asking price, the house was actually last listed at $2,495,000 and property records show the Miss Conrad picked the place up for $2,360,000.
At any rate, the freshly renovated house measures 3,009 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. There is also a guest house out back with additional an bedroom and bathroom which will make perfect digs for a bodyguard or one of her less fortunate female friends who can't afford her own multi-million dollar house.
We confess to liking this house quite a bit. Of course, it is not blazing any new interior design trails, but it's a modestly sized, well appointed house Your Mama and the Dr. Cooter could easily call home. She may be a snooze on our television, but she can certainly pick a decent house, can't she?
Please note the floor in the sun room and the black and white tiles in the bathroom. We love that shit.
