The Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed on Instagram Stories that she and Rick are currently building a home in Palm Springs, Calif. In May 2020, the two purchased a home in Newport Beach, Calif, ahead of their October 2020 wedding, per PEOPLE.
The couple toured their property with architect Gorden Stein and builder Nate Rucker and documented it on social media.
“We just bought this lot. 2.32 acres,” Kelly said in the clip.
Rick added, “We’re gonna build it, and they’re gonna come.”
“That’s right. And it’s right next to Elizabeth’s,” Kelly said, referencing RHOC co-star Elizabeth Vargas.
Kelly continued, “We got a very, very famous architect, Gordon Stein. And a very, very famous, famous builder. He does all the people at The Madison Club.”
This home seems to be replacing the couple’s Hamptons home. Surprisingly, Rick and Kelly are currently selling their Hamptons home as it’s where they first met. Two weeks ago, Kelly and Rick listed their Westhampton home for $1.395 million.
“This is where Kelly and I met, so it will always hold a special place in our hearts, but we are on the West Coast now,” Rick previously told PEOPLE. “One day, if and when we move back East, we hope to buy or build another home for ourselves in the Hamptons.”
Clearly, Kelly is set on making Rick a West Coast man for good, lol.
This is wonderful news for Kelly and Rick. Who knows if we will ever get to see the home on RHOC, as Kelly’s future on the show remains up in the air, but I’m curious to see what type of home they build.
RHOC will return for season 16 in mid-to-late 2021.
