KATE Gosselin is living in a $750,000 lakefront home in North Carolina featuring a private pier, pool and more relaxing amenities, as she hides from the spotlight.
Kate, 46, moved to North Carolina with the children in her custody, Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, all 17, while twins Mady and Cara, 21, reside with their mother when home from their respective colleges.
The Sun can exclusively reveal the family is living in a lakefront home in Troutman, North Carolina.
The Kate Plus 8 alum purchased the house for $750,000 in April 2018.
The 3,562 square-foot home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms.
The one-level home has tile flooring throughout the living room, family room, dining room and kitchen, as the walls feature wood molding.
The kitchen boasts gray countertops, wood cabinets and an island with additional seating.
The living room is cozy, as it features a fireplace and stunning views of Lake Norman.
The owner’s suite includes two master bathrooms and two bedrooms with private baths.
The lakeside bedrooms feature water views and doors leading to the covered veranda overlooking the lake.
The house, which is described as “resort-like,” boasts a private pier, pool and hot tub.
Kate’s children seem to enjoy living so close to the water.
In a TikTok video, twin Mady captioned a series of clips: “Sometimes I forget that I like the outdoors.”
In the video, Mady and her younger siblings are walking to their pier and taking in the stunning view.
In another clip, Mady is splashing her feet in the water.
The siblings then wave to the camera as they appear to be gearing up for a boat ride.
Kate sold her Pennsylvania home for $1,085,000 on January 26.
She put the mansion on the market for $1,299,900 in October 2020.
Kate bought the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home for $1,120,000 in 2008.
Reports claimed at the time that she moved to North Carolina with the children in her custody.
A source told HollywoodLife: “Kate picked up and moved the kids down to North Carolina to spend their junior and senior years there with a totally new life.”
The Sun previously reported Kate obtained her registered nurse license on June 30, 2021 for the state of North Carolina.
The expiration date is March 31, 2023 and she has a “multi-state license.”
The mom of eight’s registered nurse license is also active in Pennsylvania and expires on October 31, 2021.
Kate worked as a nurse when Jon and Kate Plus 8 aired in 2007.
Kate and her ex-husband, Jon, 44, who has primary custody of the remaining two sextuplets in his care, Collin and Hannah, were involved in a nasty custody battle after they divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage.
It has been claimed Kate has "no contact" with Collin after she placed him in an inpatient special needs program for two years before he went to live with his father.
As The Sun previously reported, Kate Plus 8 was canceled after Jon filed a petition for contempt against Kate on October 18, 2019, claiming she filmed the four minor children in her custody, Leah, Alexis, Joel and Aaden, without his consent.
A standalone episode of Kate Plus 8 aired on October 1, 2019 titled College Bound, featuring their twin daughters Mady and Cara’s college tours and a family vacation.
Jon claimed he did not receive information from Kate or TLC that “filming of the minor children was to occur" for the episode.
As part of a May 14, 2019 agreement, Kate is allowed to film with the minor children in her custody if she and/or the TLC provides him with a “filming schedule including the date, time and location of filming.”
In Kate’s response to his petition on October 30, 2019, she claimed she “was under the mistaken impression” that the network was “handling all notifications to the Father and that she was not personally responsible for these notifications” regarding filming for the episode.
She then filed a counterclaim against Jon, accusing him of continuing to “publicly embarrass” her and “tarnish” her reputation so that her ability to continue the show is “completely thwarted.”
Kate blamed him for TLC canceling the series.
Earlier this month, Jon appeared on Dr. Oz to give an update on their custody war.
The father of eight admitted he hasn't spoken to his twins in eight years, adding: "I text them every single year.”
He said Hannah has "been snubbed by her brothers."
She's been in contact with some of her sisters, however.
Asked if his daughter misses Kate, Jon said: "No, I know that. She feels a little bit slighted from what things have transpired. I know she misses Leah and Alexis. She's been snubbed by her brothers, so I don't know what's going on with that.”
The former TLC star shared that Hannah had recently been in touch with some of her siblings, getting together with them as they passed through Pennsylvania.
He said: “Hannah talked to them and they visited the county near where we live now and Hannah had dinner with them 'cause Mady goes to school in upstate New York.”
Jon confirmed that Collin did not attend.
