Finally some good news for Jon and Kate Gosselin – it appears the couple has finally sold their original Pennsylvania home for around $300,000, Radar Online.com has learned.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality couple had been trying to sell the 5 bedroom 2.5 bath home in Elizabethtown, Pa, since March 2009.
A spokesman from local realtors Brownstone Real Estate confirmed to RadarOnline.com that the property was off the market and under contract – if everything proceeds then the deal should go through in the next four to six weeks.
The embattled couple – who are currently going through a messy divorce – bought the property for $280,000 in 2006.
On season four, of Jon & Kate Plus Eight an episode showed contractors getting the house in tip-top shape – including removing lighting that had been installed for filming purposes – before it went up for sale. The home is in a suburban neighborhood where the houses are built fairly close together on approximately 1/3-acre lots.
It’s a family-friendly area where kids ride bikes, skateboard and play outside when the weather is warm.
But it wasn’t always a peaceful place for the family of 10 – former neighbors say that curious fans often drove by the Gosselin’s house to gawk.
Last fall, the Gosselins moved into a $1.1 million, 6,000-square-foot home in Wernersville, Pa. The closing for the 5-bedroom, 5.5 bath home was on Oct. 23, 2008, records show.
Unlike their old house, the family now has plenty of privacy – the nearly 24-acre property is fenced in and has a metal gate at the end of the driveway, about a half mile from the front door.
The couple is still to decide what to do with their current home once their divorce is finalized.
