Dolan Twins Sell Colorful Mid-Century Los Angeles Home For Nearly $ 3 Million – The Hollywood Reporter
Although they bought it just two years ago, public records confirm that social media superstars Ethan and Grayson Dolan unexpectedly sold their sublime mid-century modern home for nearly $ 3 million. . That’s a big step above the $ 2.2 million that now-retired YouTubers paid for the Encino property in 2019; according to the ad, the house “sold before conversion” meaning a buyer barged in before the place had even had a chance to officially enter the market. Records reveal that the new owner is a local woman who is clearly quite wealthy but not famous.
While they raked in a profit of $ 800,000 on paper, the Dolans also did extensive renovations to the house, a single-level structure originally built in 1958 by little-known architect John P Pedersen. Back when they bought the place, the decor was harmless and mundane, with white walls and gray tones throughout. The twins addressed this by adding pops of spicy color and new furniture – hot pink chairs and banquettes paired with a forest green wall, floral wallpaper in the living room, and vivid patterned wallpaper in the bedroom. main. There is also a secondary bedroom with an emerald green wall and floor-to-ceiling moss green shower tiles.
But perhaps the Dolans’ most controversial change is outside the house. At the time they bought it, the half-acre lot featured a large, irregularly shaped swimming pool with a sunken spa. Updated photos show they removed both the pool and spa, backfilling the entire shebang with soil and covering the watery grave with a grassy lawn.
The removal of the pool is highly unusual in suburban Los Angeles, where backyard swimming has been in high demand since the COVID-19 pandemic. But the twins also added a bunch of other features to make up for it – there’s now an outdoor gym, which kept the fitness-focused twins busy during the pandemic. There is also a new outdoor sauna next to the master bedroom and a hillside gazebo with ‘bar for cocktails at sunset’, according to the listing, as well as a ‘little house’ / custom shelter. Ethan Dolan built as a surprise for his brother.
Born and raised in New Jersey, the Dolan Twins first rose to prominence as young teens on the now defunct Vine app, before moving on to YouTube and TikTok. The couple became millionaires after reaching over 10 million subscribers and 1.8 billion lifetime views on YouTube, where they were known for their collaborations with other top personalities such as Emma Chamberlain, James Charles. and Jeffree Star.
It is not yet clear where the twins, both 21, are heading next on their real estate journey. But it’s been nearly a year since the couple officially left YouTube to pursue other endeavors, so they certainly have the freedom to completely detach from their residential foothold in LA.
Jose Lopez-Cepero and Andrew Rhoda of Compass held the list; Cindy Ambuehl of Compass replaced the buyer.
