Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Vanderpump Sells Beverly Glen Estate
EXCLUSIVE: In real estate, location is everything. Sometimes, timing is, too.
Such is the case with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ cast member, Lisa Vanderpump, who sold her home when she received an unsolicited offer from a buyer.
According to an unnamed source, Vanderpump accepted an offer recently to buy her Landry-designed home in Beverly Glen. The deal was facilitated through high-end Beverly Hills real estate agent Mauricio Umansky, husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Kyle Richards.
According to reports, Vanderpump decided to sell the stately home because the 17,000 square feet of living space was too big for her and her husband, restaurateur Ken Todd and their four dogs, led by Giggy the Pom (pronounced “jiggy”) who holds court on his own Twitter page. The home was previously floated by Umansky as a very quiet pocket listing with an asking price of $29 million. The final sale price is undisclosed.
Designed by high-end firm Landry Design Group, the French Chateau-style home has not only been one of the filming locations for episodes of RHOBH, but was also the site for Vanderpump’s daughter Pandora’s wedding recently to her long-time boyfriend, Jason Sabo. With two acres of landscaped grounds graced with terraces, fountains and outdoor seating areas, the spot was ideal for the outdoor ceremony.
Vanderpump and her husband have reportedly already purchased a new home in Beverly Hills — a more modest 10,000-square-feet place for around $12 million.
In other real estate news, Umansky recently launched a new real estate company in Los Angeles called The Agency, which merges The Umansky Group with architecture and design team Rose + Chang. The new partnership’s goal is to create “a culture where agents collaborate in partnership,” according Umansky’s statement on the website.
