“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Teddi Mellencamp has carved out a niche for herself as a fitness influencer and accountability coach. So it follows she is now accountable for the sale ($3.2 million) or lease ($17,000 a month) of her former home—a residence Bravo watchers are very familiar with. Located in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood known as Olympus Cove, the home is camera-ready.
“RHOBH” watchers already know Mellencamp and her family are already ensconced in their new $4.07 million home. The reason for the move to a new residence?
“My husband (Edwin Arroyave) has been stalking [the new home] for years because of the view,” Mellencamp said on “ROBH.” “And, well, it went on the market, so guess who had to buy it?”
Here’s the tea though—the house now on the market also has a spectacular view overlooking Hollywood and the rest of Los Angeles. Some might even prefer Mellencamp’s former house over the new one, because the one she’s selling has a grassy, tree-filled backyard with Zen gardens, decks, a koi pond, bubbling brook, and infinity pool and spa.
Mellencamp and her husband bought the contemporary-style home in 2011 for $1.8 million. Built in 1978, it has been substantially renovated and updated with all of the modern conveniences.
Perhaps the most famous room in this house is the light-filled kitchen bedecked with striking turquoise tiles. It features modern appliances, including a show refrigerator, and opens to the outside via a huge window right behind the sink.
Outside, there’s also a well-equipped kitchen protected by a spacious deck overhang. A teak ceiling with recessed lighting provides an elegant covering, while cool breezes flow through the space on three sides. There’s also a suspended flat-screen TV, for watching Bravo alfresco.
The master suite is a showstopper. Not only does it offer views of the city, but it also has separate closets and a private deck.
The 2,918-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three baths. The children’s rooms are decorated for fun and style—we especially love the room with a chalkboard wall.
The spacious family room centered around a large fireplace makes for an ideal gathering spot. It features a bar, and opens up to the kitchen.
The living room just off the entry is suitable for more formal entertaining. It also has a large fireplace, and is bathed with natural light—ideal for filming.
Mellencamp, who joined the “RHOBH” cast in Season 8, is a former champion equestrian. She currently runs a boutique company called All In by Teddi.
