Everything to Know About Kyle Richards' Incredible Houses
She and husband Mauricio Umansky have houses in Encino and La Quinta, California and in Aspen, Colorado.
To say that Kyle Richards has lived in some fabulous homes might be an understatement: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member's current Encino mansion and former Bel-Air residence were expertly decorated and sit on sprawling properties. Of course, the estates have been also curated by a highly successful realtor and founder/CEO of the billion-dollar brokerage The Agency: Kyle's husband, Mauricio Umansky.
The couple and their four daughters — Farrah Brittany as well as Alexia, Sophia, and Portia Umansky — also have access to stunning vacation homes in both La Quinta, California and Aspen, Colorado.
Read on for all the details on Kyle's past and current homes in Bel-Air, Encino, Aspen, La Quinta, and Mexico.
Kyle's former Bel-Air house
In 2011, Kyle and Mauricio bought this stunning abode in Bel-Air for $3 million. The 6,229-square-foot home designed by Kyle’s bestie Faye Resnick boasts seven bathrooms, seven bedrooms, and a multi-purpose outdoor sports court, among other notable features. On RHOBH, the home was the backdrop to many iconic moments over seven seasons — including the no-air-conditioning dinner party outside and many glamorous white parties.
Eventually, though, Kyle and Mauricio were ready to move on and listed the property for $6.995 million in November 2017. They dropped their asking price to $6.3 million at the beginning of 2018, then to $5.995 million in the spring of that year while simultaneously listing it as for rent.
Renting was the solution for a while, and the Bel-Air pad saw some notable names on its leasing agreement over the years, including actress Jessica Chastain.
“I didn’t realize it [was Kyle’s house],” Bravo fan Chastain revealed in a January 2023 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “My husband had picked it out, and I showed up and I was like, ‘How do I know this place?’” Chastain only had lovely things to say about her former landlords: “At one point we had an issue with the movie theater, and Mauricio showed up.”
Another well-known renter from the Bravoverse was The Real Housewives of Miami’s Larsa Pippen. But perhaps the most talked-about occupant was Kyle’s fellow cast member Sutton Stracke, whose stint in the home was documented on Season 11 of RHOBH.
Although the home was, at that point, listed for $25,000 a month, Sutton snagged it for a cool $20,000 monthly (no security deposit required). "There was absolutely a friends and family discount,” Kyle joked on the show.
For Kyle, renting the place out to her bestie was a bittersweet experience: "I love this house. I'm so happy that you're in here," she told Sutton in an episode. But in an interview she added, "It feels so strange to be walking through my home and looking at someone else's things. I keep picturing how I used to have the house versus how she has it now. [It] makes me feel a little sad."
And Sutton’s year-long stay wasn’t without incident. "[Sutton] was a great tenant, although she did almost burn my house down," Kyle told Andy Cohen on Part 1 of the show's Season 11 reunion. "They just did like a walk-through and they're like, 'Um, the house was almost burned down.'"
After a photo of the fireplace damage was shown on screen, Sutton declared, "It is not my fault, I just turned the fireplace on."
After Sutton moved out (and into a newly redone Bel-Air manse of her own), Kyle sold the house for $6.1 million — thanks to some extra special realtors. Mauricio and the couple's daughters Alexia and Farrah were the listing agents on the property. Alexia announced the sale news in a January 2022 Instagram post, noting that the home sold after "just 10 days" back on the market.
"A bittersweet goodbye to the home I have countless memories in," Alexia wrote in the post. "A home that shaped so much of who I am today. It was an honor to pass it along to the next owners, who I know will love every moment here." In a comment, Kyle added: "Bittersweet for sure...good job."
Kyle's new Encino mansion
In 2017 —as they were first trying to sell their Bel-Air home — Kyle, Mauricio, and their daughters moved into a jaw-dropping abode in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley region. “We went into this house and I went, 'Oh my gosh.' I was completely blown away, because it's not like anything you would see in Los Angeles, normally. I just fell in love, and my husband did, too,” Kyle told Entertainment Tonight shortly thereafter. (Fun fact: The 11,000-square-foot home had been previously owned by Smokey Robinson.)
However, things quickly took a terrifying turn when the Encino house was burglarized while the family was vacationing in Aspen. Kyle spoke about the incident with The Daily Dish in January 2018. "We were completely shocked. And it was just devastating. I'm very grateful that we're all OK," Kyle said, noting that "everything" had been taken, including jewelry, watches, handbags, luggage, and even her passport, the total cost of which was over $1 million.
"I keep telling myself, these are just things, they are. But it still really hurts a lot," she added. "My mom left me things she had collected her whole life, passed those on to me, and I wanted to pass those things on to my four daughters. And every time I buy something or I've been given something, I think, 'Well, these are gonna be for my daughters one day.' Really, every gift I've ever been given, everything my mother left me, everything that I worked my butt off to buy for myself, all of it has been taken."
Understandably, the situation made Kyle question whether she’d ever feel comfortable in the house and weigh the possibility of moving again, but ultimately, she and her family decided to stay.
"There was one point after our house was burglarized that I thought, you know, I might have to sell my house," Kyle says in the video above, which shows the home’s backyard. "But then I look at my dogs and see how much they love this house and I think, I could never leave. They’re so happy and it makes me so happy sitting out here in the morning having my coffee on the porch in my rocking chair, watching my dogs."
Part of the decision to stay came with a total facelift for the property. “I’m actually changing kind of everything,” Kyle told BravoTV.com at NBCUniversal’s upfront presentation in May 2022. “When I first bought the house, I was like, ‘Oh, it looks great like it is,’" she said. "Then, once we were burglarized, I thought I was going to sell my house. I was like, ‘I’m over this. I don’t want to live here anymore.’That’s why I kept my house in Bel-Air, the one that Sutton was leasing from me.”
“But then, once I spent some time and I was comfortable again, I sold the Bel-Air house, and now I’m just changing everything in the house to make it exactly the way I want it because I think it really is our forever home,” she added.
The changes included redesigning her living room and upgrading her (already impressive) backyard with a pickleball court.
Kyle's dreamy La Quinta vacation home
Kyle’s La Quinta vacation house in the Coachella Valley area is about a 2-hour drive from her primary residence. “It’s an easy place to hop in the car and get away,” she explains in the video tour of the property, above. “It’s been a really great place for us to escape.”
The beautiful home overlooks a lush golf course and majestic mountains, and it has a breezy indoor-outdoor vibe, which capitalizes on the scenery. “We relax, we entertain. That’s why we have this open floor plan,” Kyle says. The main living space is outfitted with a grand fireplace, lots of stone and tile work, an oversized kitchen with a large center island, and an ultra-comfy white sectional.
“We really just wanted a space where the kids can hang out and have fun because this is a family house,” she shares. On that note, each of her four daughters enjoys their own bedroom in the abode.
Still, there are changes on the horizon. “I really want to completely redo [the house],” Kyle shares, adding that she’s going for a “light and bright” and “more modern” feel, as opposed to the current warmer color scheme. “I was just trying to go against all that dark Tuscany vibe that you see in this area so much because it was a thing at that time when this house was built.”
Kyle's current and former houses in Aspen
When they want a change of scenery and of climate, the Richards-Umansky family heads to their Aspen vacation abode; they've had two.
Kyle and Mauricio bought their first Aspen house in May 2019, but we didn’t get our first look inside until 2020 when the family was enjoying a dreamy vacation. They made many memories there, including outdoor movie nights with jaw-dropping views, “lit” New Year’s Eve parties, and an unforgettable RHOBH cast trip.
However, in June 2022, Architectural Digest revealed that the 2,400-square-foot rustic retreat was on the market for $9,750,000. “Our family is growing [and] we simply need more space,” Kyle explained in an Instagram Story that month, adding that she is “never leaving Aspen.”
Two months later, the family was already in their new Aspen house. Although we’re still anxiously awaiting the full tour, Kyle and her family have been generous with sharing social media peeks, including the rustic decor and sweeping views and their festive Christmas decorations.
Kyle once planned a Mexico vacation house
Kyle’s family has close ties to Mexico: Her husband was born there and his real estate firm, The Agency, has an office in Punta Mita (which is 10 miles north of Puerto Vallarta), so they’re jetting back and forth constantly.
So, Kyle and Mauricio bought property in Punta Mita with the intention of building a house — but a scary incident thwarted the plans.
“We wanted this property here. We bought it, we were going to build on the beach,” Kyle shared during the episode. “My husband’s dream was to build a home, [but] my friend lived right near us [and] they had an alligator in their pool. We got offered a lot of money over what we paid for this piece of beachfront property, so I was like, 'Take it, take it, take it!’ because of the alligator.”
