According to Zillow, the 7,591-square-foot residence sold for just under $1.1 million on January 26, 2021, $214,000 under the initial asking price. The mom of eight — who shares kids Cara, Mady, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden, Hannah and Collin with ex-husband Jon Gosselin — first listed the home in October.
The property sits on 23 acres of private land surrounded by mature trees and grassy fields. It boasts oak and cherry hardwood floors throughout and has a whopping six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The gourmet chef’s kitchen is perfect for a large family, outfitted with three ovens, two dishwashers, a six-burner gas stovetop and a large island suited for serving meals.
A source previously told In Touch that the busy mom isn’t “broke,” but “her finances are not what they used to be,” they divulged. “She’s not working, so there are no checks coming in. It costs a lot of money to care for the kids and the lifestyle she’s been accustomed to. Having a hit TV show had a lot of perks. Things have definitely changed. That’s why she’s looking to sell her home.”
The insider added that it “doesn’t help” her “ongoing custody battle” with Jon “never seems to end.”
That said, it sounds like the move won’t be without a little drama. According to Jon, daughter Hannah was “super upset” that her mom put her childhood home up for sale.
“She was pretty much upset that that was her childhood home, her mother selling it, didn’t even call her to say, ‘Hey, do you want any of your stuff or anything? Hey, I need to sell this house,'” he continued. “There is no contact.”
