OKAY, just admit it! We have all watched it... The Bachelor. Curling up in the sofa with some diet coke and ice cream watching a handsome guy pick and chose between 25 gorgeous women. Mmm... that's entertainment. Why do the women sign up? I have no idea! Why do the bachelor sign up? Duh! It is just what a man needs to keep him humble, 25 women fighting and making fools of themselves just so that one can end up with the ring and get dumped a few months later.
Well, you can say what you want about the show... but I have always LOVED the house! And it turns out it's for sale! So here you go, take a look at the BACHELOR house and be a judge for yourself. Is it as beautiful in real life or does everything look better on TV?
This is were the rose ceremony takes place. Cheesy, but oh so fun to watch!
This recently built hacienda of approximately 8000 square feet is truly unparalleled in design and construction. Also on the property sits a separate 4000 square foot accessory building/studio, complete with A/C, restroms and internet capability; perfect for a home office or studio. (Yeah, an "accessory building" bigger than my house!)
This estate is filled with many one of a kind architectural elements and details from all over the world. There is no detail left overlooked in this 6 bedroom, 9 bath estate; from the hand carved stone fireplaces and fountains to the state of the art chefs kitchen adorned with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.
Remember the "mustard-on-his-hotdog-scene"? This is where it happened!
The owner of the six-bedroom Agoura Hills, Calif. mansion where TV’s “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” are filmed has lowered his asking price again to $6,750,000, meaning that his listing price now is almost half his original, nearly $13 million asking price.
Owner Marshall Haraden built the house in 2005 and used materials for the house from Mexico, India, China and Morocco, according to an October Wall Street Journal article on the house.
Features in the house include nine baths, hand-carved Cantera stone fireplaces, imported fountains, a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, electronic skylights and dual pane windows.
Outdoor features include a separate, 4,000-square-foot accessory building, a solar-heated, saltwater swimming pool, a swim-up barbecue and bar, arched aqueduct spillways and two spas. The house sits on 9.8 acres.
Haraden calls the property Villa De La Vina, and he also rents it out. Take a look at his website for the house – with lots of photos.
