The Real Estalker Blog, which is like a sophisticated online version of MTV Cribs, is my new bff. They are up on all the latest celebrity home listings and I occasionally go there to see the houses I can’t afford to buy, but can afford to drool over. This week, I learned that Giuliana and Bill Rancic are selling their beautiful Los Angeles rental property. And you can totally have it! For the small asking price of almost $2.4 million :) Deets and pretty pics inside.
As you may have heard, Giuliana and Bill are expecting their first child (it’s a boy!) and, thus, have plans to continue construction on a newly purchased home while this home (used primarily for filming their reality show on E! Guiliana & Bill) is on the market.
Now the exact asking price for the rental property is $2,395,000 and for that amount, you’ll get to live in Los Angeles (in the upscale Brentwood neighborhood), in a 2,272 square foot home with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The home also boasts a front garden, pools, and a hillside view. Nice! And some of your neighbors? Arnold Schwarzenegger, Julie Andrews and Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Not bad.
Here’s a lovely introductory description of the Rancic’s property from The Real Estalker:
It takes but few steps on a brick path to get from a compact driveway at the end of a short cul-de-sac[e] to a puny (but properly-scaled) portico entry. A glass and wood Dutch door—and who does not love a Dutch door?—opens in to a spacious center hall entry where a petite den/office to the left of the entry has built-in book shelves on either side of a bay window. The living room runs along the back of the house and features a red brick fireplace, a full wall of built-in cabinets and book shelves, and chocolate-colored hardwood floors that run throughout both floors. A row of multi-paned windows and French doors lead out to a cozy covered porch that spans the full width of the back of the house.
See, this is the problem with these sites! Suddenly, I find myself craving a Dutch door and chocolate-colored hardwood floors– having never considered either of these a necessity in life. Thank you Real Estalker.
Anybody got an extra $2.4 milli lying around?
