Over the weekend, Kat Von D took to social media to announce that she is the owner of a new stunning house described as a second empire/Italianate-style.
The famous reality TV star and tattoo artist shared a photo of herself standing in front of the stunning Victorian home while holding a “Sold” sign.
The 38-year-old star revealed that she and her husband, Rafael Reyes, had purchased the home in Vevay, Indiana.
It has been confirmed that the couple scooped up the historical mansion that has 35 rooms for about $1.87 million.
The property, which is known as the historic Schenck mansion, is sprawled over 12,000 square feet and comes with seven bedrooms, along with 13 fireplaces, eight bathrooms.
Kat Von D and her family will enjoy the view of the stunning garden and vineyard from seven balconies. The celebrity had this caption for the post: “It’s official! Vevay, Indiana, here we come!”
Shortly after sharing the photo, Kat Von D was bombarded with questions by people, including her close family members who wanted to know why she was leaving California.
They also wanted to know if she was selling her Hollywood mansion and if she was closing her companies.
A person asked this about Kat’s decision to plant her roots elsewhere: “Omg, what a beautiful house 😍 if you don’t mind me asking, you guys are selling the current one? And why are you moving?”
Kat blasted the Democrats who run California, the high taxes, and the tough regulations on masks during the pandemic.
She said she was moving for the sake of her 2-year-old son, Leafar, and added: “Getting lots of texts from friends asking if we are moving to Indiana and selling our home in Hancock Park, and if so, why. Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA, but with all that has been taking place in California, with terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so many more corruption, we just felt the need to plant roots in a small town where there is nature, where my son can be free to play, and where we can eventually retire one day.”
She went on to explain: “So, no, I’m not closing my shop in LA. We aren’t selling our home. But I will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house.”
The TV personality is clear about her big choice.
