Lauren Conrad buys $3.7 million Brentwood home
Reality TV star turned designer and author chose a traditional home remodeled by TV personality Jeff Lewis. She owns two other properties.
Lauren Conrad, whose latest projects are designing clothing and writing books, has just bought a house in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles for $3.745 million.
The 27-year-old TV personality, who starred in “The Hills,” is no stranger to real estate, despite her youth. She sold the home that appeared in “The Hills” in 2011 (for $360,000 less than she paid in 2008) and bought a Beverly Hills condo for $1.3 million. She also has a house in Laguna Beach.

Her latest acquisition was remodeled by Jeff Lewis, who remodels and redecorates on two Bravo shows, “Flipping Out” and “Interior Therapy.”
Conrad’s new two-story traditional home, built in 1959, has six bedrooms and five baths in 4,303 square feet, which includes maid’s quarters. According to the listing, it has a new chef’s kitchen and master suite, dark hardwood floors, white marble countertops and an open floor plan. You can see photos at the Trulia Luxe Living blog.
Surprisingly for Los Angeles, the house does not have a pool but the listing notes there is room for one on the 11,692-square-foot lot. It’s in a gated community.
The home last sold for $2.27 million in December 2010. It was on and off the market a few times last year, but was most recently listed Feb. 1 for $3.85 million.
Conrad won’t have to go far for decorating tips. She has her own blog with a decorating section, plus she is guest editor this month for E! Online’s The Trend blog.
Her latest three tips by the way, are to hang photos and artwork, use throw pillows and make your space your own. She writes:
Like I've said before, a space that reflects your taste and personality is one that will feel livable and cozy. Make your space your own by adding unique treasures or pieces that are important to you — whether that means items you have collected while traveling, pieces you have picked up at flea markets, or vintage finds you've discovered at antique stores. You can even refurbish an old piece of furniture to put a one-of-a-kind spin on it. Always decorate your home so that it feels like you.
