In the latest chapter of "are they, aren't they," actress Kristen Stewart continues to intrigue celebrity gossip fiends with the news that she's bought a new home in Los Angeles -- about one mile away from the home she once shared with "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson.
Stewart acquired the home for $2,195,000, confirms the Los Angeles Times. The sale, which closed in late August about one month after Stewart's affair with a married director came to light, was first reported by celebrity real estate blog Real Estalker.
Located in LA's trendy Los Feliz neighborhood (fast becoming headquarters for hipsters and young Hollywood), the 3,000 square-foot home has four ensuite bedrooms and an additional half bathroom. It also boasts large patios, a pool and spa, gardens and a fire pit, notes real estate blog Zillow. But the home's most important feature is perhaps the dense tropical landscaping surrounding the property. It's perfect for a woman who's been the subject of intense paparazzi scrutiny ever since her relationship with Pattinson blew up over these secretly snapped photos.
Meanwhile, Pattinson reportedly put his home on the market around the same time Stewart bought this new property. A source told US Weekly that there were "too many memories" for Pattinson to remain there; he had bought the home in Sept. 2011 for both he and Stewart to share.
And yet, it appears that the two young actors have gotten back together again, just in time for the November premiere of "Twilight's" final installment. Whether it's true love or just a film marketing strategy, only time (and real estate) will tell.
