If you’ve watched any of the Real Housewives shows on Bravo, you know the stars live in some fancy AF homes. But some of their sprawling mansions and penthouse apartments are more impressive than others — and some we’re seriously lusting after. Sure, the design might not always be exactly to our taste. After all, Kim Zolciak-Biermann is probably the only person interested in hanging a giant portrait of Kim Zolciak-Biermann in the lieu of actual home decoration. But there’s no denying that, all individual touches aside, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star lives somewhere beautiful. Want to see her place and the rest of our four favorite Housewives homes? Watch the video above to take a tour of our top five estates.
Yep, all those five houses are absolutely amazing, but we also have to give credit to one housewife whose New York City apartment didn’t make out list: Luann de Lesseps, aka The Countess. Though we weren’t particularly blown away by the inside of her home, we did get a little breathless at the site of her apartment’s patio. Not only does she have some precious outdoor real estate, something particularly rare in the city, it’s also just straight-up gorgeous. The simple outdoor furniture lets the space speak for itself, and the lit trees against the city’s skyline bring a little touch of nature to the concrete jungle. Plus, it’s hard to look down on that view.
We have to say, though, it seems like the best houses are in Atlanta. And when you think about it, it’s not as shocking as it seems. Sure, Beverly Hills may have a particular reputation for glitz and glam, and New York may be the Big Apple, but Atlanta is a hot spot, too — and one that comes with real estate prices a little less likely to make us keel over in shock. That’s not to say that the RHOA ladies aren’t still stunningly wealthy and shelling out the big bucks for their castle-esque homes, but just that the value of a dollar seems to go a little farther. All we know is, if we’re looking to join one of the casts, we’d be happy to put up with all the drama in trade for one of those beautiful homes. It sounds like a plenty fair deal to us.
