When it comes to the "Real Housewives" franchise, the drama isn't limited to only the television screen. The various cast members often provide fodder in other walks of life, even in real estate news.
In Venice, Stephanie Hollman of "The Real Housewives of Dallas" has sold a newly transformed home for $5.61 million. That's $625,000 over the asking price and nearly $4 million more than what Hollman and her husband, Dallas-based businessman Travis Hollman, paid for the property two years ago.
The 4,572-square-foot house, renovated by Venice-based homebuilder Kim Gordon, makes the most of indoor-outdoor living. Towering steel-framed windows bring in views of various outdoor spaces and leafy grounds, while a rooftop patio tops the multi-story home.
Other features of the five-bedroom home include custom woodwork, modern fixtures and a lavish kitchen with an island/bar. A glass-and-wood staircase — a signature of the designer — connects each level.
Switching to "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," personality Lisa Vanderpump has made a move on a smaller scale. Vanderpump, whose credits also include the spin-off series "Vanderpump Rules," has paid $630,000 for a condominium in West Hollywood.
The two-bedroom unit has a sophisticated vibe with vibrant hues, decorative wallpaper and a range of tilework. An updated kitchen, a living room with a fireplace and two renovated bathrooms lie within nearly 1,000 square feet of living space.
Two parking spots were also included in the sale.
Shokoh Nasab of Keller Williams Realty held the listing for the condo. Jeffrey Hobgood represented Vanderpump in the sale.
Justin Alexander of Halton Pardee + Partners had Hollman's listing. Tami Pardee, also of Halton Pardee + Partners, represented the buyer.
