1. Here’s some celebrity real estate news for my younger readers (including my daughter Lily). Ariana Grande, who plays Cat Valentine on the popular Nickelodeon show Victorious, is selling the house she grew up in for $2.49 million. She’s relocating to L.A. for her new spin-off show Sam and Cat. Check the listing with Coldwell Banker for photos and info.
2. A reader named Kim added a mudroom to the back of her house and made it look like it’s always been there. See how she did it on her blog Living Vintage.
4. A reader named Sarah owns this charming historic home in Franklin, Tennessee, called Jefferson House. You can rent it on your next trip to TN–details at VRBO.
5. This week marks 5 years since I started blogging (anyone remember that header from ’08?). In that time I’ve written roughly 1,500 posts, which have gotten 75,000 comments and over 45 million views. I’ve learned a lot, mostly by making a lot of stupid mistakes along the way!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart for being a part of this community of fellow house
snoops addicts. The only reason Hooked on Houses is still around 5 years later is because you are.
