The personality of the television and specialist of the house Paige Hemmis, previously guest of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and for the last couple of years the expert of do-it-yourself in the "chat of the heart" of Hallmark Channel "Home & Family" paid $ 2.55 million for a spacious home in a supervised luxury development in Calabasas, California. Arranged around a protected entrance courtyard dominated by a gigantic stone fireplace, the 5,445-square-foot single-storey residence has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
Perfect for a smart girl with an expert propensity for home-made dandy improvements and DIY decoration, the interior spaces tiled with white and mostly beige walls are relatively uneven and largely unadorned. There is an undefined purpose room just inside the entrance door and the large formal living room features a pointed ceiling, carved limestone fireplace and four sets of French doors onto the back yard, while the adjacent formal dining room opens onto the entrance courtyard. Fitted with marble countertops, multiple sinks and stainless steel design appliances, the spacious central island kitchen opens onto an informal dining room and a family room with an angled gas fireplace, integrated entertainment unit and French windows to the rear.
All the guest rooms have a private bathroom, one of them with an external entrance that makes it suitable as a baby-sitter and, in a private position at the back of the residence where it opens onto the courtyard, the master bedroom offers a walk well-equipped wardrobe and a bathroom made in all-but-exact type of beige tumbled stone tile work and faux-distressed wood furniture that can be found in literally millions of medium-high and market-wide houses throughout the country.
A shallow, arched lodge outside the formal living room gives way to a rather wraparound paved terrace that surrounds an infinity pool. There is a built-in barbecue on one side of the pool and a small piece of grass and a circular spa paved under the shade of the trees on the other.
Hemmis, married in a special television show of 2015 on the set of "Home & Family" to the musician Jason Short, one of the singers of the not well known Australian pop music group ARIA, had a couple of years engaged to sell and buy prototype suburban homes in some of the furthest communities in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. In 2010, the do-it-herselfer, hard to die, paid $ 975,000 for a spacious, if ever insignificant, six-bedroom house and seven bathrooms in a gated development at Northridge that was sold for $ 1.35 million in April 2017 and, in the same period, paid $ 1,073 million for a tract of 4,830 square feet, a variety of home gardens in a fenced development, not far from Magic Mountain near Santa Clarita, which was divided into high school sold at the beginning of the year for $ 1.15 million.
