That sneaky boy...  
So he did buy a house. We were hypothesizing about this earlier because when he took out the trash it did not look like either his condo or V's house but then this just came out:

Life is good for designer/TV design show host Kenneth Brown. New baby. New bedding line for QVC. New baby line of crib bedding and decorative accessories that just made its debut in Babies "R" Us stores last week. And, oh, did we mention he's designing Zac Efron's house? Vanessa Anne Hudgens' too.

That's separate houses, the L.A.-based designer notes, for the romantically linked "High School Musical" stars.

And when it comes to their design styles, "they're complete opposites," he shares with us in a recent telephone interview.

"If they ever get married, they'll have to have separate houses. He's very modern and she's very traditional."

And Brown? "I'm smack dab in the middle of them," says the host of HGTV's "reDesign" and TLC's "Over Designed."


Good job Zac on keeping some of your private life private... even if the papz are all over you all the same.

LMAO I love most how they have totally different styles.

Though it's possible he's just redecorating his condo tbh...

Yeah, I've always been under the impression that the condo was actually Disney's. I don't think I have a good reason for why I thought that but w/e. So, in other words, it doesn't surprise me that he got his own place at this particular time when he is done with Disney.

I think it is funny about the differing styles too... I go back and forth myself about which design I'd go with between Craftsman style and modern. Truthfully if I had enough money, I'd have both. LOL.

So I am sure you have already seen this (I just pasted it to Anna in lieu of here because even though it is "news" sources, it's moderately shippy and I didn't want to burden you with that):

SO RANDOM:
JustJared: "Zac owns a two-bedroom house... Vanessa has a 5,200-square-foot, $2.75 million Tuscan-style villa — six bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a saline pool and spa." (JJ took down his street name shortly after. And he should never have put it up tbh.)

LESS RELIABLE BUT HILARIOUS:
Showbiz or some nonsense via National Enquirer:
"The pair - who have been dating since the 2006 filming of Disney's High School Musical - are living at Hudgens' 5,200-square-foot, $2.75 million Tuscan-style villa in Studio City, according to the National Enquirer.

A source tells the tabloid, 'The funny thing is that Zac and Vanessa bought separate places so they could feel independent of one another.

'Zac especially seemed to want his freedom, but ever since he got his multi-million dollar house in the Hollywood Hills, he spends all his time at Vanessa's home in Studio City, which is just 10 minutes away.

'There's hardly any furniture in [Zac's] house. One night, he invited Vanessa over for a romantic candlelit dinner - and the two of them had to eat on the floor!

'Living with Vanessa is an oasis of privacy and tranquility for him.'"

could you delete the street name from your above post? i'm cool with us discussing/speculating on it, but i want to limit (as much as i can anyway) how many people know if at all possible, you know, to try and help protect his privacy. i think i'll make future posts friends only on this topic so we can discuss it at will without worrying about who might be reading.

Oh you can just delete the whole comment if you want! I was actually going to screen the comment and TOTALLY FORGOT like a dumbass.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on February 3rd, 2009 12:59 am (UTC)
oh, i like the comment just take out the street name is all.

it amuses me what the tabloids say.

and what a dork about the no furniture date, no wonder he had to hire someone to do it for him. but the story kind of makes me think of the notebook. isn't there a scene where there is no furniture in the house and they have sex on the floor or something? maybe i need to watch this again.
Annamodernthirst on February 2nd, 2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
Haha I know I saw that and laaaaaughed. I thought he was just not getting one because he was going to move into V's but I guess that is a fandom pipe dream ha.

I had thought he bought his own for a while. If he was living at V's he would have gotten papped coming and going 'cause they know where her house is. Plus you never ever see him papped at his condo anymore and we used to all the time.

And really what else are you going to do with 5 mil? He kept the Audi and updated the sound system, and you know he was getting tired of the paps so its not surprising he bought a house where he was not so accessable. Good for him. He was MIA during the holidays alot and that extra week in Australia, it wouldn't surprise me if he just had all his stuff moved while he was gone.

And yeah the trash pics confirmed it for me. Definitely not his apartment or V's house.

I'd love to see what it looks like but I doubt we will anytime soon. Let him have his privacy. :)

Yeah, I started to suspect once we started not seeing pics of him going to work out all the time. And none from his condo.

And didn't Vanessa say something on Ellen about getting him 'something for a house' for his birthday?

And then there was that rumor that she built him a workout studio in her house.

Sometimes the rumors are 90% right. So maybe she got him a workout room for his house not hers? IDK.

Yeah, as much as I'm curious what style house he chose (mostly because I'm a design and architecture snob), I'm happier for it to stay hidden. Too many people knew where he lived before. Hopefully he can keep it better under wraps now.

i'm pasting what i wrote to shrewtee:

like i said, i don't want to be a bitch about it but i don't want to be a propagator of that kind of info. at least not out in the open, lol.

Re:

I just deleted the whole thing cause I don't know how to edit just parts of the post.

Nah I get it, its fine. :) I don't think I've added you as a friend, I'll do that now. :)

Yeah IA about protecting his privacy, tacky of JJ to put that in his post, good thing he edited. All it takes is a few minutes on google these days. :S

You know what's funny? Remember the pictures of him coming out of a house with a sticker on his T-shirt and an autograph of Beverly D'Angelo end August? Well, that house is accidentially in the exact same street than his new one is reported to be.

Only difference? It's much bigger than the reports say. It's 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 6 fireplaces and 4.828 square feet (also significantly more expensive).

Having said that, it's completely gated (not in a gated community but the house is gated and reportedly has total privacy). Also, the master bedroom has supposedly an attached gym... which leads me to specualte that perhaps bought it a while back but hasn't moved in until recently... perhaps while the new house was being renovated/decorated (I believe there are pics of him leaving his condo mid Dec). He might have used the gym for a while though which would explain the lack of gym pics.

Of course that's all spec right now since it's based on unreliable sources and I've made some conclusions of my own but given the old pap pics and the new address it seems too much of an coincidence (unfortunatley finding out the address is about 2 minutes on Google if that's his new house so I'm sure other will find it out too).

PS: I'm not a stalker, I'm just nosey. ;)

i was getting ready to pm you cause i feel like i haven't seen you around in forever!

Real life is just a bitch...

I've been around a bit in the background but never had enough time (and patience) to post anywhere. I haven't forgotten about Zac though. :)

I hope I'll be more online again soon.
Bee: Wowzersjeezbee on February 3rd, 2009 04:23 am (UTC)
Btw, I realize in the meantime that there is a house (which got sold early Dec) which fits the description to a T. I guess I was just blinded by the crazy coincidence that Beverly D'Angelo's house was in the same street.

Anyway, that house.... after the designer's comment I was expecting modern but than is way more modern that I thought. I like it though - my style preference is modern too (although it's totally irrelevant).
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on February 3rd, 2009 04:49 am (UTC)
omg, great minds think alike... i think we found the same house. see my pm.
