Inside Kamala Harris' Brentwood home where she rushed home after snapping at reporter during TV interview at border

KAMALA Harris' luxurious mansion in the upscale Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles served as her resting place after she was met with harsh criticisms from protesters at her widely criticized border trip.

The trendy neighborhood of Brentwood, where the mansion is located, is a hot spot for other celebrity palaces, boasting residents like Gwyneth Paltrow and LeBron James, Town and Country reports.

The property features four bedrooms and five bathrooms, as well as a private pool.

Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, purchased the property in 2012 for $2.7million two years before the couple tied the knot.

Emhoff paid for the home with a Wells Fargo loan and later transferred it to a joint trust after he and Harris were married, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The 3,500 square foot mansion's Zillow listing now estimates the price at nearly $5million.

The style of the California palace has not been reported on, since images of it have been blurred out on Google Street View.

Harris is not the first politician to buy a property in the highly coveted Brentwood area.

Former President Nixon made his home in Brentwood before he was elected, during which time the house escaped a fire that devastated the Brentwood and Bel Air neighborhoods.

The upscale area is just 10 minutes from the beautiful Will Rogers State Historic Park and the Getty Center Museum.

The chateau is one of several properties owned by the Vice President and her husband, including a $1.775million two bedroom condo in the capital, and a condo in San Francisco that Harris paid half a million dollars for in 2004, but is reported to have since doubled in value.

Harris returned to the home after a border visit that was heavily criticized as "a rubber stamp of 'I visited the border'", in the words of a border agent present when she arrived.

During a press event on site, she snapped at a reporter questioning how long it had taken her to come to the border.

"Well, it's not my first visit," Harris said, raising a finger and an eyebrow towards a reporter grilling her over the timing of her border visit. "I've been to the border many times."

The VP encountered a large crowd of protesters as she came to tour the El Paso Central Processing Center, holding signs reading "Trump Won" and "Que Mala Harris", a play of the VP's name which, when translated to Spanish, means "how mean."

Other signs read "Kamala, do you hear their screams?" and asked how many "little girls need to be raped" before the administration declares the situation at the border a "crisis."

The trip marks the first time Harris has been to the border in 93 days since she was designated "migration czar" by the Biden administration and charged with tackling the border crisis.

Harris also told the media that Biden "inherited a tough situation" at the border from the previous administration, and blamed a series of "disastrous" Trump-era policies for contributing to the surge in crossings.

"This was an important trip," she said, "and it was connected with the obvious point: If you want to deal with the problem you can't just deal with the symptom, you have to address what caused it [too]."

"It is here in El Paso that the return to Mexico policy from the previous administration was implemented," she said, slamming Trump's border policy.

"We have seen the disaster that resulted from that here in El Paso."

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also said in a press conference that Harris went to the border because it was the site of "problematic" Trump policies.

"It was the place where the former president … put in place some of his immigration policies that we felt were so problematic," she told reporters.
