Moving Up With Kim Kardashian

Reality television personality Kim Kardashian has purchased a furnished home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area -- that is, within the 90210 zip code. She paid about $3.5 million for the two-story, gated home, reported the Los Angeles Times. (What's with all the gates in L.A., anyway?)

The Tuscan-style 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home has fireplaces in the dining room, family room, living room, master bedroom and kitchen as well as outdoors. The zaftig star will turn one bedroom into a giant walk-in closet, according to the L.A. Times. But we're more envious of the kitchen that opens up to the outside, and the outdoor massage room.The 4,000-square-foot property was listed originally for $4.8 million and previously sold in 2005 for $1.3 million, according to various reports and public records. See more photos at TMZ.

Kardashian, 29, daughter of the late Robert Kardashian who was OJ Simpson's attorney, stars with her sisters in the reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

Late last year she listed her 1,720 square foot condo in West Hollywood for just under $1.1 million, reported the Realestalker. She bought that 3 bedroom and 2.5 bath condo in 2005 for $850,000, according to Berg Properties. No word as to whether or not it sold, but we no longer see it listed on the MLS. Given that she bought her new place furnished, there's a chance the condo hasn't sold and is still sitting staged. Maybe it will reappear on the market again soon. Either way, Kardashian is definitely keeping up with the Jones's!
