Turns out the Beverly Hills penthouse that Lauren Conrad bought last April was just a stepping stone for her next big real estate purchase. The former reality TV star, and now budding fashion and online entrepreneur, just picked up a classic estate in the high-end Los Angeles enclave of Brentwood for $3.745 million. Conrad has successfully distanced herself from her days on MTV's "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County" and "The Hills," selling the Hollywood Hills home that served as the filming location for the show in early 2012. She bought the Beverly Hills penthouse shortly after, but it may have just been a temporary home base while she looked for her next house.
She chose well with this purchase. The Brentwood home was redesigned by Bravo favorite, designer and serial flipper Jeff Lewis. The two-story traditional sits on a quiet dead-end street behind gates. Inside, dark, polished wood floors juxtapose a nearly all-white interior. The kitchen has been completely updated to include white marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. An open floor plan leads to the outdoors, where there's room for a pool. Measuring 4,303 square feet, the home has six bedrooms -- which includes a staff suite -- and five bathrooms. Originally listed for $3.85 million by Nourmand & Associates Realtors, Conrad bought it for $100,000 less.
