Being the breadwinner of her family, one of Julia Montes's goals when she started working at the age of six was to buy a house.
In 2015, she became a proud owner of a property, which has three bedrooms, a gym, and a walk-in closet.
The house was located in the same village where her rumored beau Coco Martin lives.
But this wasn't the first property of the 22-year-old Kapamilya star.
Back in 2012, she put her money on a 200-square-meter house in Cainta, Rizal.
In a past interview, the Doble Kara lead actress said she does not want to let go of this house even if she prefers to live in Quezon City.
"Gusto kong ipa-rent, ayaw kong ibenta kasi first investment ko."
YES! magazine had the chance to tour her Cainta home the same year she bought it.
According to her grandmother, the house was already furnished when they bought it.
She told YES!, "Lahat ng furniture sa baba, hindi kami ang bumili."
Julia's place had a "homey, cozy, and minimalist vibe."
One of the corners in Julia's room was painted red.
"Dream ko lang magkaroon ng red wall," she said.
"Naa-attract ako sa red, kasi usong-uso sa akin 'yong nagbabasa ako ng mga book, and then nabasa ko 'yong meaning.
"Iyong red, parang nagsi-symbolize ng parang strong ka."
One of the rooms was converted into a walk-in closet.
This veranda was her favorite spot.
"Relaxing siya for me 'tsaka may iba siyang feeling, e.
"Dahil open air, nakikita mo 'yong view, nakikita mo 'yong sky.
"Feeling ko, doon ako nagkakaroon ng panibagong dreams."
