Y&R: Jess Walton's former home for sale


Recommended Posts

Asking price, 1,325,000$. Once again, such a shame that a home that must have once been beautiful is ruined by tasteless "updating". All of those beautiful exposed beams covered with white PAINT. It has a great, interesting design... but it's decorated atrociously as well. the landscaping is ok, except it needs some color. At least it's planted to look lush, and things are placed in a naturalistic formation. It's unusual to see grass that close to the pool, one has a VERY hard time trying to mow, and especially edge the lawn area without getting clippings in the pool. It's got to be one of the ugliest kitchens I've ever laid eyes on. I however think the master bath is lovely, it's the only thing I like about the inside. what possesed her to paint the exterior the color of diarrhea is beyond me. Ochre tones are very touchy, they can look good as accent, but the wrong shade just makes it look like youv'e opened up a baby's diaper. And in the bedroom... who in their right mind plops a television set in the corner of the room like that with those corner panoramic windows? The television set should have been mounted in an armoire or on the wall to the left of windows, and the bed on the opposite wall facing the left bank of windows.

It is a HECK of a low price. I was surprised myself, that's almost in line with what houses like that would cost around here... not quite, but close. She must really want to unload it, or the market out there is really depressed, one of the two.

The furniture looks like the stuff realtors bring in to stage homes for sale. The seating area next to the kitchen is especially bad because it all looks like a doctor's waiting room.

The kitchen is a disaster, obviously built for a non-cook. The pool would be great for someone who doesn't swim.

The view is wonderful and the house takes full advantage of it.

I don't like the interior decor of that house, the colors are blah. It is way too personalized to be put on a tough housing market. The kitchen is a nightmare. I can't believe that a house that large could have such a small kitchen. I should have been remodeled long before being put on the market. Oh well, the price will be good for some people.

Apparently it already sold back in November, and the listing is just still up on youtube. It was built in 1949. And soapboy... yes, she lived there until she moved to Oregon full time, so she was the one selling this time. I guess they made money on it, because it says they paid 889,000 for it back in 2002.

    • Can't wait!! Seasons 8-10 is very high praise indeed!
    • @CatI feel like Tamra was the missing piece of the puzzle, but this is a good set up for her to return next year. It felt like classic RHOC like seasons 8-10. They gave you everything, but with the elevation that Heather brought when she first joined. Even Emily and Gina felt right. It felt like no time had passed. I didn't miss or even think about Kelly Dodd.
    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
