A justificativa, segundo sua assessoria, é que ela tem passado mais tempo na cidade e, por isso, decidiu adotar um lar por ali. A propriedade, comprada por cerca de US$ 10 milhões, pertenceu ao designer Steven Hermann, que a reformou completamente antes da venda. Com quatro suítes, home theater, piscina e spa, a casa se destaca por suas enormes paredes de vidro, que se abrem para uma belíssima vista da cidade
