Vanessa Hudgens splashes out

Vanessa Hudgens has reportedly spent a staggering $2.75 million on a new house.

The 19-year-old actress – who shot to fame playing talented schoolgirl Gabriella Montez in the High School Musical franchise – is said to have purchased a six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom, 5,200 sq ft house in Studio City, California.

The description of the property reads: “This is a spectacular old-world Tuscan, architectural manor with Moroccan influences and city light views.

“It has amazing custom stacked stone, saline Pebble-Tech pool/spa, waterfalls, cabana, BBQ island, hardwood and stone floors, the ultimate gourmet kitchen, Thermador appliances, windows, copper sinks, Arte de Mexico wrought iron and a wine cellar with glass doors.”

At the Teen Choice Awards in August, Vanessa – who is dating her High School Musical co-star Zac Efron – confirmed she was “in the process” of purchasing a new property.

She said: “My favourite thing about being in Los Angeles is probably just being in my house. I actually just bought a new house, so I will be able to stay there now!

“I’m still in the process of buying it, so I am kind of freaked out. My family actually found it for me so I’m glad they approve as well.”

Vanessa and Zac can next be seen in High School Musical 3: Senior Year, released worldwide next month.
