Lauren Conrad Trades Hollywood Home for Beverly Hills Penthouse Condo

- — She's come a long way from Laguna Beach, CA where Lauren Conrad was a reality TV star on the MTV show "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County." And she has distanced herself from her days on "The Hills," preferring to publicize her clothing lines and fiction novels instead.

Now that there's a contract on her Hollywood home, the filming location of “The Hills," as well as her new purchase of a swanky penthouse, Conrad may finally be able to put the drama of reality TV behind her.

Conrad dropped $1.35 million on her new bachelorette pad in the highly prestigious 90210 area, although that was a nice reduction from the penthouse's original $1.7 million list price when it hit the Beverly Hills real estate market in September 2011.

The massive 3,200-square foot, two-story penthouse condo boasts 3 bedrooms, 4 baths and a 24-hour security system. Conrad's home also features a reverse floor plan: The master suite and second bedroom are on the main level, and the large family room, additional bedroom and deck are on the second floor. Amenities include a rooftop pool, sun deck, entertainment room and a gym.

According to Zillow’s mortgage calculator, a monthly payment on the home would be $4,995 a month, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year mortgage.
