The Kardashian Home

Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Fake House for Sale

The fake Kardashian-Jenner mansion can be yours for $6.25 million! Let's back up for a minute. You didn't actually think the exterior shots of the Italian-style home featured on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" belonged to Kris and family -did you?
Reality TV's first family chose not to depict the outside of their true house on the show for security purposes. The mansion that is often featured on E! is actually located in Studio City's Fryman Estates. The 7,043-square-foot home boasts seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and is known as the "Palazzo di Sono."
Instead, Kris, Kim, Kanye, Kendall, and Kylie live several miles away in a private gated community in Calabasas, California. Their real home has six bedrooms, eight baths, and is 9,000 square feet. However, the interior shots you see on "KUWTK" all take place inside the family's actual residence.
"My old home in Beverly Hills was really my home; I would get people showing up at all hours ringing my gate and I had to call the police on several occasions. People hoping the gate; it was scaring me," Kim explained on Twitter when asked about the house. "It was so unsafe. The hollywood star tours would stop by too, because they recognized my home from our show. After that we realized how unsafe it is to show the exterior of our homes. So now we use different homes for the outside for security purposes. When we film inside, thats obviously our real home."

One way to easily tell that there were two different houses being featured on the show is that the faux home's design was inspired by a Medici castle in Florence, while Kris's tastes are clearly much more modern.
And if you are a true Kardashian detective, you may have also noticed that the front doors and fountains don't match up while watching the show.
Check out a photo below that Kendall Jenner posted on Instagram, with the caption, "Driving home to all this! #yup my family is officially car CRAZY:"


Fun fact: the fake house has also been used in HBO's hit show "True Blood." It will be up to the new owners of "Palazzo di Sono" to decide if they will allow filming to continue there.
When the Kardashian and Jenner clan moved into their "dream home" in 2009, they gave a tour of their new digs to Life & Style. However, the family apparently then decided they did not want exterior shots featured on their hit show for security reasons.

Khloé and Kourtney have both allowed cameras inside their homes to film, and in Season 9 of "KUWTK," fans have gotten a glimpse of Kim and Kanye's unfinished $11 million dollar property.
Khloé and soon-to-be ex-husband Lamar Odom just recently sold their Tarzana, California, abode to Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting. Khloé just bought Justin Bieber's noisy old pad down the street from the gated community where Kourtney, Scott, Penelope, and Mason are moving.
Whether Khloé will let fans get a peek inside — or outside — her new bachelorette  pad remains to be seen.
