Where will Glenn Beck go now that his days at Fox News have come to an end? We have answers!

Beck has apparently had enough of New York, Connecticut and the rest of the East Coast and is moving to Texas, though there are conflicting reports as to what exactly his living arrangement will be. (Fox News announces new show to replace Glenn Beck’s primetime spot)

Business Insider reports Beck purchased a $3.9 million, 7,900 square foot home in Westlake. The house is equipped with seven bedrooms, as many bathrooms, a sunroom, a home gym, and a detached guest house. The estate, which covers two acres, also comes with a steam room and, of course, a huge pool.

Curbed, meanwhile, reports that Beck is simply renting the house, owned by former MLB player Jorge Piedra and his wife Vanessa, heiress to the Swarovski fortune. The cost to rent: a cool $20,000 a month. No word on whether or not that includes utilities.

Regardless of whether Beck owns the place or is just renting, one thing’s for sure: the guy can afford it. AOL reports that in 2009, Beck made an astounding $32 million.
