Lauren Conrad's come along way from Laguna Beach and The Hills — and yet not that far at all.

It pays to be a former reality TV star/now author and fashion designer. According to TMZ, L.C., 27, just spent $3.74 million on a 4,300-square-foot home in the affluent Brentwood district of L.A.

The property reportedly has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a basketball court. Bonus: It was remodeled by Jeff Lewis of Bravo's Flipping Out!

Check out photos of the beautiful home here.

It's like a charming, two-story New England-style home on the outside, but starkly white and modern on the inside.
