Gorgeous digs! Bachelor couple Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham reside in a seriously gorgeous new home in Scottsdale, Arizona. The abode, which sits on a sprawling piece of property, features high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and a walk-in closet for their young daughter, Alessi.
In an exclusive February 2021 interview with Life & Style, the pair opened up about a “huge renovation” they did on their property. “We changed all the floors, painted all the walls, changed all the baseboards and trim,” Lauren said. “Our kitchen’s completely new. We’ve got a giant island there.”
Arie also added that they added a “twin’s room” after the birth of son Lux Jacob and daughter Senna James “because we were out of bedrooms.”
“Lauren just loves to dive in and make things look beautiful,” Arie continued. “So, we are always doing something now we’re renovating one of our rentals, and we bought a commercial building that we’re gonna renovate.”
Lauren added that they “had an interior designer that helped with the decor in here, but the design of the house, we mostly did ourselves. We all, we also had an architect that helped us put everything into writing, but yeah. Yeah. This was our vision,” calling it “modern.”
And when it comes to daughter Alessi’s “favorite part” of their house, both Arie and Lauren felt that her “playroom” was top of the list. Arie added, “When we took the couch out to renovate, she was heartbroken.”
Arie’s favorite part is the coffee maker that’s “built into the cabinetry of the kitchen, and it can make lattes,” while Arie loves “our bedroom” for its “very modern, but warm vibes.”

After the Bachelor Nation pair announced in December 2020 that Lauren was pregnant with twins, they instantly started a new construction project on their house for a new room and bathroom for the babies before they welcomed Lux and Senna in June 2021.
Arie may be the realtor, but Lauren has an amazing eye for design. Some of her upgrade ideas include cement countertops in the bathroom, swapping out the fireplace in the master bedroom and giving the whole place a more modern vibe.
Needless to say, Lauren and Arie are ecstatic about welcoming two more children. They welcomed their oldest kiddo, Alessi, in May 2019.
Sadly the duo, who got married in January 2019, suffered a devastating miscarriage in 2020 before conceiving their twins. “A little over a month ago, we got the most exciting news, and we found out that we were pregnant with our second baby,” they explained on YouTube in May 2020. “We made so many plans. We bought a new house with more space, we planned how we wanted to tell you all and we envisioned our future with Alessi’s little brother/sister.”
“We were planning to share our journey through pregnancy with you, but unfortunately we didn’t get the happy story we had hoped for,” they continued. “We decided to share this part of our journey with you, because well, we share everything with you!” The pair also wanted to share their story to help others feel “a little less lonely.”
Arie and Lauren are over the moon about their next chapter as a family of five, and their Arizona home is ready for more babies. Keep scrolling to tour their house!
