Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney List LA House – DIRT


It’s no secret in the reality TV world that OG “Vanderpump Rules” couple Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney have split.

Not only has their sometimes rocky relationship played out on national television over the past nine seasons of the hit show, but in March they did what so many TV personalities do when they have a big announcement. ; they took to their individual Instagram accounts to reveal to their more than two million combined followers that they would be divorcing after a dozen years as a couple and three years of marriage.

The following month, while walking the red carpet at the opening of Lisa Vanderpump’s typically decadent new restaurant and bar in Las Vegas, Maloney told Page Six that she and her soon-to-be ex-Bubba help each other out. to find new homes because their common home was too big for either of them to stay alone. Then, last week, she posted a heartfelt goodbye on Instagram that showed her sitting on the floor of the empty dining room at their once-beloved home that she loved to “dress like a Hallmark movie on Christmas.” .

It was only a matter of time, then, before the estranged couple’s happier home in the Valley Village area of ​​Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley came up for sale. And indeed he has. With all of its Hallmark holiday badges removed and staged for the sale process along with a bunch of generic furniture, the 3,600 square foot home is now listed at nearly $2.75 million.

If it sold nearly on demand, the former couple will make a handsome profit on the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home they snagged just over three years ago for $1.925 million . Interestingly, tax records show they purchased the house from showbizzers Mark Duplass and Katie Aselton, who had owned the property for less than a year and likely never lived there.

Trimmed with unusable black shutters, the unassuming white clapboard home was built in 2016 in the ubiquitous “Modern Farmhouse” style that blends familiar and cozy architectural design motifs with modern features and creature comforts. Like so many homes built in this style over the past decade across Los Angeles and beyond, the home’s airy, open-plan living spaces are ideal for casual entertaining and a relaxed indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

The front door opens informally into an entrance hall, lounge and dining room with wide planks of natural-coloured white oak flooring, a fireplace, traditional moldings and a double-height ceiling above the central staircase. The scene of numerous parties and a few booze dusts filmed for “Vanderpump Rules,” the Great Room’s open gourmet kitchen is set around a large island with a spacious butler’s pantry and designer-grade appliances. In the adjoining family room, full-height glass slides open to a small loggia with an outdoor fireplace.

Each of the three guest bedrooms has a private bathroom, as does the master suite, which offers a fireplace, a balcony and a fitted dressing room. Not particularly large but well surrounded for privacy, the backyard squeezes into a patch of grass and a plunge pool fed by a waterfall and spa.

Listings held by Stephen Apelian of Coldwell Banker Realty, which describes the property as “celebrity owned”, say the home also offers enhanced security features and built-in surround sound.

Outside of their roles on “Vanderpump Rules,” which Bravo recently renewed for its tenth season, Maloney hosts the “You’re Gonna Love Me with Katie Maloney” podcast, while Schwartz co-owns West Hollywood hot spot TomTom and prepares to open a new bar, Schwartz and Sandy’s, in Los Angeles’ Franklin Village with best friend and castmate “VPR” Tom Sandoval.
