Kristin Cavallari’s Beach House from “The Hills”

Just down the street from Jennifer Aniston’s former beach house, which I blogged about on Friday, is the residence that Kristin Cavallari called home during this past season of fave reality show The Hills.  So, since we were already in the area a couple of weeks ago, I just had to drag fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA – who I am sad to say is not at all a fan of the MTV show – over to stalk the place.  I found this location thanks to fellow stalker Virginie who posted Kristin’s former address in the comments section of my site way back in October of last year and it’s been high up on my “To-Stalk” list ever since.  Thank you, Virginie!  Unfortunately, though, since I so rarely get out to the ‘Bu, I had yet to stalk the residence.  And while I realize that The Hills ended its current season over two and a half months ago and that I am just slightly late to the game on this one, as I always say, it’s far better to be late than never.  :)

The four bedroom, four bath beach house pictured above, which was built in 1969 and measures 2,972 square feet, first showed up when Kristin Cavallari joined the cast of The Hills in the Season Five episode entitled “It’s On Bitch”.  But she didn’t stay there long.  The Laguna Beach  alum moved out of this location just ten episodes later, on the show’s season finale which was entitled “Boys of the Summer”.  I am fairly certain that Kristin never actually rented this house, though, and quite possibly never even truly lived there, but that the property was leased by MTV solely for filming purposes.

And quite a bit of filming did actually take place on location at the residence.  In fact, the house showed up in all ten episodes which featured Kristin during Season Five.  The back side of the property was the area most often featured on the show . . .

. . . and was the site of Kristin’s many beach parties and get-togethers.  Oh, how I wish I had stalked this place back when The Hills  was still filming so that I could have seen her little tiki bar and patio furniture in person.  Sadly, all of the outdoor decor that appeared on the show has long since been removed.

And, of course, I just had to get a picture of the house’s back stairwell, which appeared numerous times on the show.  I so wanted to pose for a picture while standing on the stairs, too, but being that someone was inside the property while we were stalking the place, I didn’t think that would be a very smart move.  😉

The inside of the home was also featured numerous times on the show and while I have to say that the residence’s interior is absolutely GORGEOUS, it doesn’t, in my opinion at least, really match up to the exterior, which seems to be a bit dated and weathered.

For whatever reason, the front entrance to the house was only ever shown once on The Hills, at the very beginning of the “It’s On Bitch” episode, in the scene in which Kristin is shown getting into her car and driving off on Pacific Coast Highway on her way to make an appearance at Spencer and Heidi’s “Welcome Home” party.

Amazingly enough, while doing research for this post I discovered that appearing on The Hills  isn’t the home’s only claim to fame.  The property actually has a long and storied Hollywood history.  According to this article, in the early ‘80s the beach pad belonged to music executive Jerry Goldstein.   In the ‘90s, it was purchased by another music man, record promoter and Giant Records president Charlie Minor.  Sadly, on March 19, 1995, Minor, who had worked with both Sting and Janet Jackson during the course of his highly successful career, was murdered in the house by a former girlfriend named Suzette McClure who shot him nine times after catching him in bed with another woman.  But the house’s notoriety doesn’t end there, for it was also used as one of the locations of the Silver Spoon Beach House – the notorious party pad where throngs of young Hollywood stars would hang out during the summer months.  Just a few of the celebs who were seen there include Lindsay Lohan, Ali Landry, The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Slade Smiley (Ugh, gag me!) and Gretchen Rossi, Brody Jenner, and ironically enough, even Kristin Cavallari, who not only partied at the house, but also once did a photo shoot there.

A big THANK YOU to Virginie for finding this location!  :)

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  :)

Stalk It: Kristin Cavallari’s beach house from The Hills is located at 22058 Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.   Jennifer Aniston’s former Malibu home is located just a few houses east of Kristin’s at 22164 Pacific Coast Highway.

      OMG thanks for this! I’ve been trying to figure out where her house is for months now! Let me see what I can dig up!

      • Lindsay – I’m thinking that Kristin’s newest house featured on The Hills is at 819 North La Jolla. I’ve been researching it all day because I’m fascinated with that final shot on The Hills in front of The Hollywood Sign. If her house really is on North La Jolla, then they didn’t even film the real part of the street conversation in front of it. Can you confirm?

        • Ok, yeah… the house on La Jolla has definitely got to be it. I’ve done a little more research. The only problem is that with the Google Maps street view, you can’t see much of it at all. It looks so beautiful in the Hills Freak pictures though!

        • Lindsay says:

          Hey Britney! NICE WORK! That is for sure the house!!!!! How in the heck did you find it??? And you’re right – I’m pretty sure they did not film that final scene in front of the house. I’ll try to figure out where it was filmed, though.

          • Dude! I freaking worked on it yesterday like crazy! What finally got me there though was seeing the name of a former owner. I started searching him (a celebrity hair guy apparently) and found some public records of the property he sold in 2007 (which is the year the Hills Freak blog mentioned) and bam – saw the address. The google street view sucks, but I could just tell that was it. You’ve got to go by now and get pictures!

          • By the way, should I have been notified via email that you responded to me on here? If so, I wasn’t. Just wanted to let you know in case there’s a glitch in your site.

          • Lindsay says:

            No – my site doesn’t notifiy you when someone responds to a comment. It’s lame, I know. You can subscribe to all comments posted via RSS feed if you want, though.

          • lol – well, ok. Just wanted to make sure it wasn’t malfunctioning or something. Can’t wait to hear more on Krisin’s new house and the filming of the last scene and all that!

    does anyone know where k-cav moved to after she moved out of this fabulous malibu rental?

    You’re welcome! And thanks to you, Lindsay, for stalking the beach house! I so love the place!! :-)
