Bel Air, California, United States
Actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have put their sprawling Bel Air mansion on the market for $28.65 million as their criminal trial looms. The celebrity couple are among 36 parents charged in the 2019 college admission bribery scandal, nicknamed Operation Varsity Blues. Radar reported, “The couple is accused of paying $500,000 to Rick Singer, a college admissions consultant from California who took payments from parents in exchange for getting their kids into elite schools.” The Full House star purchased the 12,000 square foot residence with her husband in 2015 for $13.9 million before renovating it beyond recognition. The shell of the home remains mostly the same but the interiors have been drastically altered. Two years after the renovation, the couple listed the property for $35 million. It never sold and was removed in July 2018. According to TMZ, listing the home has nothing to with the college admissions scandal or their upcoming trial and that the couple regularly buy, renovate and sell high end homes. There’s more than 12,000 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms with features including a gourmet kitchen, large walls for art and a circular motor-court with 5-car garage. The 0.69 acre property includes two swimming pools overlooking the Bel Air Country Club.
