Lindsay recently opened the doors of her palatial mansion near the beach to Life & Style magazine, showing off where she will spend her 35-day sentence. Despite the obvious comfort and style she is used too, Lindsay says she can’t wait to get out and about again.

“I’m a very social person and I like being outside,” said the 24-year-old actress.

But she has put her time to good use decorating the patio and other rooms, and admitted they probably wouldn’t have got done otherwise.

The 3,000 sq ft triplex is worth $2.25m. There are three-bedrooms, four-bathrooms |and roof terrace here as well |as that enviable beachside |location.

After Lindsay’s house arrest she is due to start community service. “I want to finish that (community service) so that I can work in August and September. I want to focus on getting everything done with the court,” she said.

And she has been quoted as saying it is her love of working that will help her overcome the recent difficulties in her life. “I do understand that I need to gain some of the respect back, but I’m willing to work hard for that. I understand the situations I’ve put myself in, and I don’t want to go back to it.”
