Like her The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ cast mate Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards is slowly but surely whittling down the price of her former home in an attempt to sell it ... and as of last month, she’s even willing to rent the gorgeous abode out for a mere $30,000 a month.
If you’ve been paying attention to Kyle’s every real estate move, then you know the TV producer settled into a sprawling San Fernando Valley estate last year for which she paid $8.2 million. Yes, this is the property that was also scene of a terrible burglary, and no, Kyle is not moving because of that invasion.
But, whatever happened to her previous home? You know the one! The backdrop to oh-so-many RHOBH scenes — from Kyle chitchatting with her husband Mauricio Umansky in the kitchen to the infamous no-air-conditioning dinner party outside — the home was designed by Kyle’s bestie Faye Resnick and it was where she filmed seven seasons of the show.
Here’s the backstory on the property: Located on a quiet cul de sac in Bel Air, California, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house was purchased by Kyle and Mauricio for just over $3 million in 2011. The couple listed the property for $6.995 million last November, then dropped it to $6.3 million at the beginning of the year, then again to $5.995 million in the spring — all while simultaneously listing it for rent. The asking price for that? While they were originally looking for $50,000 a month, Kyle and Mauricio dropped that ask to $40,000 earlier this year, and as of last month, they’re officially willing to accept a renter for $30,000 a month. Ya know, chump change!
Got that kind of dough to spare? Well consider the place yours … but check out the property images below before signing the dotted line. And because the Richards/Umansky clan keeps it all the family, you'll have to go through Kyle's daughter Farrah Aldjufrie, who is the broker for the property.
The 6,229-square-foot home is located on a charming, tree-lined street in Bel Air.
Black-and-white checkered tiles greet guests at the front door.
The wood-paneled pub room is where Kyle typically hosted pre-dinner drinks, before heading to an al fresco meal through the French doors.
The all-white chef’s kitchen has not one but two sinks and overlooks a cozy den and fireplace.
Intimate and sophisticated, Kyle’s dining room was the backdrop to many a girls-only dinner parties on the show.
Vaulted ceilings, a fire place and a whole lot of natural light sell the master bedroom.
The site of Kyle’s annual white party, the home’s backyard includes a swimming pool, a grassy sports court and a putting green.
