CelebrityEnvy: Lauren Conrad’s Pacific Palisades Home

Reality star-turned-fashion designer sells Spanish-style home for $4.995 million

The world fell in love with Lauren Conrad when she was a fresh-faced teen, caught in a love triangle on MTV’s Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, a reality documentary series that chronicled the lives of Lauren and her friends in the posh Orange County suburbs. Conrad later graduated to star in The Hills in 2006, another reality series that showed her move to Los Angeles and the romances, friends-turned-frenemies and work woes, including her regrettable decision to turn down an offer from Teen Vogue to spend the summer in Paris in lieu of renting a beach house with her then-boyfriend.

Fast forward to 2018, and Conrad has left her career in reality television to achieve great success in the business world. She has two clothing lines: upscale fashion line Paper Crown, and the more affordable clothing and home goods collection, LC by Lauren Conrad, available at Kohl’s as well as online free trade shop, The Little Market. She has penned seven New York Times bestselling books and serves as editor-in-chief of her lifestyle blog, LaurenConrad.com featuring fashion, beauty, cooking and design tips.

What she didn’t leave behind was her love of the beach. In 2016, Conrad opened the doors of the Pacific Palisades home she shared with husband William Tell to MyDomaine in 2016, before selling the property for $4.995 in 2017. The 5,871 square foot, five bedroom, five and a half bathroom home is in a gated community and set on 1.5 acres. The home is described by Variety as “flawlessly remodeled,” and features “wood-beamed ceilings, white walls and wide-plank floorboards.” The four guest bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, while the master bedroom has a circular dressing room with arched French doors that open to a Juliet balcony.

The home is anchored by the nearly all-white kitchen, Conrad’s self-described favorite room in the house, which she completely renovated to feature natural timber open shelves in lieu of cabinets, white subway tile, and white marble countertops.

Conrads tells MyDomaine, “When you have people over, everyone just ends up in the kitchen...so I thought that [this space] was great not only for entertaining but also for food preparation,” she said. “It’s so great to spread everything out. It’s a nice way to prepare a meal. I really love how open and spacious it is -- and the storage in this kitchen is incredible.”

Conrad’s other residential properties have included a $2.8 million Beverly Hills condo, a $3.651 million Brentwood residence, and two properties in Laguna Beach. As far as where the future will take Conrad and her family, the rest, they say, is still unwritten.
