In another post, the Bravo star shared a photo of her front porch, complete with a dark-wood bench and pillows that read, "What Happens on the Porch Stays on the Porch" and "Porch Sweet Porch."

"Well after spending almost 3 weeks in NC, I welcomed my beautiful newest grandson Hank into the world and was able to get my lake house completed with all of the furniture and accessories," she captioned the gallery. "Thanks to @cindyshockey for her incredible vision to create the look that I envisioned.

Gunvalson revealed on Instagram in August that she had bought the home — without seeing it in person first — writing, "It's the year of following my heart AND my head" alongside a series of photographs.

One photo featured an outside view of the waterside home, while another featured a stunning pink and purple sunset.

"Three months ago I closed on an incredible vacation home in Puerto Vallarta and this most recent purchase in North Carolina for a vacation / rental home solidifies my goals," the reality star continued, adding that the property would allow her to be closer to her daughter Briana and grandchildren.

"Being near my family at a vacation/lake home to create lifelong memories makes my heart happy. Isn't that what life is all about?" Gunvalson added.

The Coto Insurance CEO also clarified that she wasn't moving to North Carolina full-time, but would be working remotely when she visits.

Gunvalson purchased a "vacation/retirement" home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, in May. She moved into the home in July, calling it "a leap of faith."

"Although I was apprehensive to go through with it, I have to tell you all it was one of my best decisions," she added of the purchase, sharing in August that the condo was "coming together nicely."

Earlier that month, Gunvalson put her Coto de Caza, California, residence on the market for $3.35 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. The five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom, two-story house was built in 1995 and contains an office, a center-island kitchen and formal living and dining rooms off the entry, as well as a family room with a wet bar.
