[box] Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo recently tied the knot and didn’t waste any time settling down, as they quickly purchased a sensationally beautiful Spanish style mansion located in the hilly Encino district of Los Angeles, California to celebrate their nuptials.[/box]
After years of unmarried bliss, Nick Lachey, the once Mr. Jessica Simpson, now host to “The Sing Off” and Vanessa Minnillo finally made their relationship official and tied the knot. With that move out of the way, it was time to buy a new home, the next step in the Hollywood lifestyle (First you live together, have a baby-optional-get married, then purchase real estate.)
The two opted for a house in the San Fernando Valley by purchasing a $2.85 million dollar Spanish style home located near the Encino Reservoir. There’s plenty of room in this 8,000+ square foot, 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom Spanish flavored mansion, just in case they want to start a family. There will be plenty of extra space for a plethora of little rug rats, and perhaps even an in-law or two.
The interior of this tastefully decorated and dramatic home has vaulted beamed ceilings, fireplaces galore, hardwood floors and lots and lots of stone to make it look like the home of a Spanish viceroy in early America. The intricate arching design set atop stone columns, sets the house apart from the rest, making it a particularly interesting piece of architecture. With a diversity of geometric designs and both rectangular and arched doorways, there’s an abundance of eye candy in this delightfully airy home.
However, the couple needs to purchase new draperies for those dazzling windows. The ones that came with the house look a bit like bed sheets or plain muslin, hung to hide the contents of the empty house from the peering public eyes. While the color and maybe even the material befit the house, the design is less than desirable. The draperies not only have no style, but they dangle and crumple along the floor. Someone needs to call a decorator for some emergency window treatment. Unless of course Ms. Minnillo has an silk thumb for decor.
The kitchen is to die for and the outside sitting areas make you believe there is greenery in heaven. The master bathroom is also just as dazzling as the rest of the house, with a glass enclosed shower and soaking tub clad with the traditional stone that lines the walls of the house. Of all the celebrity homes in this price range, it’s obvious this couple got the most for their money in this exceptionally fabulous , fit for a king (or Spanish Viceroy) home.
