The TLC alum purchased her $1.1 million Wernersville mansion 12 years ago with ex-husband Jon Gosselin before their divorce. She put the house up for sale for $1,299,990 on October 23, according to People. The property includes a 7,591-square-foot home with six beds, seven bathrooms and it sits on 23 acres of gated, private land.
The house, which was built in 1997, also boasts a family room and game room that connects to a patio in the backyard. The home also features oak and cherry hardwood floors, as well as a hunter green front door that welcomes guests into a two-story foyer.
The sprawling abode also has a gourmet chef’s kitchen with three ovens, two dishwashers, a six-burner stovetop and an island. The large formal dining room features a gas fireplace and crown molding. The master bedroom, which is situated on the first floor, comes with its own tiled bathroom, soaking tub and glass shower. Four of the other bedrooms were recently remodeled.
In the lower level of the home is a laundry room with two washers and two dryers, a large storage room with custom shelves and a separate area that can be transformed into a home office or an entertainment area.
There is a three-car detached garage separate from the main house that offers a separate living space upstairs with a private entrance. The yard features an 850-square-foot deck with an outdoor kitchen and slate tiles for a fire pit. Also on the property sits a saltwater pool with a spa, a spiral staircase that leads down to a waterslide and a three-stall horse barn that connects to a 10-acre fenced paddock.
Kate, 45, won the house in her nasty 2009 divorce from Jon, 43. She lived comfortably in her abode with the couple’s eight children — 20-year-old twin daughters Cara and Mady and 16-year-old sextuplets Collin, Hannah, Aaden, Alexis, Leah and Joel.
Now that Cara and Mady are college-aged and Collin and Hannah moved out of the home to live with their dad in 2018, it seems the former Kate Plus Date star is looking to downsize amid money woes. An insider exclusively revealed to In Touch that while she isn’t “broke, her finances are not what they used to be.”
“She’s not working, so there are no checks coming in,” the source revealed. “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.”
