Fitness Guru Autumn Calabrese Sprints Into Lavish Hidden Hills Estate

location: Hidden Hills, Calif.
price: $6.25 million
size: 8,000 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6.25 bathrooms

With the current coronavirus pandemic keeping much of the world in lockdown, it’s no surprise that the popularity of at-home workout programs have skyrocketed. And lots of quarantined folks have been introduced to celebrity trainer Autumn Calabrese, best-known as the longtime face of Beachbody’s “21 Day Fix,” the on-demand program that ranks as the billion-dollar fitness juggernaut’s top-selling franchise.

Over the past decade, Calabrese has built a formidable fitness empire — and a reported eight-figure net worth — on the muscular back of her Beachbody success, with a bestselling cookbook (“Fixate”), additional Beachbody programs (“21 Day Fix Extreme,” “Ultimate Portion Fix”) and frequent appearances on mainstream media programs.

Calabrese recently upgraded her home studio (and residence) with the $6.25 million purchase of a decidedly luxe, ranch-style estate in horsey Hidden Hills, the equestrian-oriented, celeb-filled gated neighborhood that lies immediately adjacent to the San Fernando Valley city of Calabasas.

Originally built in 1961, the house was once a humble midcentury bungalow. Over the past few years, however, previous owners have expanded the traditional-style abode into a rambling, 8,000 sq. ft. mansion with trendy contemporary interiors and resort-style grounds. A circular motorcourt winds around a graceful sycamore tree, and visiting guests can stop to smell the roses in the front garden, quite literally.

An open-concept floorplan offers an all-white kitchen that opens directly to a formal dining area. There’s also a large media room with a wet bar, and a bevy of fancy amenities that include Lutron and Nest lighting/sound systems, a sophisticated security system with cameras and cable wiring for no fewer than 19 TVs — so “21 Day Fix” can play nonstop on every room in the house, should Calabrese wish it.

Naturally, the house also offers a large gym and yoga studio equipped with floor-to-ceiling mirrors and a lustrous hardwood floor. A separate guesthouse has its own private entrance, and the property additionally boasts two horse stables.

But the real star of the home show are the 1.2-acre estate’s outdoor living areas, which include an almost unbelievably lavish outdoor kitchen with every high-end stainless appliance known to mankind. An adjacent alfresco dining area has radiant heated floors and string lighting for twilight dinners, while a covered cabana has an outdoor fireplace and spills out to the pool area, where there’s also a raised spa and a firepit.

Of course, Hidden Hills is famously home to the Kardashians and a wide range of other celebrities: Jessica Simpson, Kaley Cuoco, Dwyane Wade, Jaden Smith, Drake and Howie Mandel are all current residents. There’s also YouTuber Jeffree Star, who recently paid $14.6 million for one of the largest mega-mansions in the enclave.

As for Calabrese, she continues to own a $3 million house in the Calabasas outskirts, picked up back in late 2016. She also holds title to a modest condo in Woodland Hills, purchased in 2017 for $550,000. And last month, she sold her L.A. starter house in Studio City for $2.35 million — to Carl Daikeler, the Malibu-based CEO of Beachbody.

Patte Gilbert of Wish Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing; Ed Moloney of Seabreeze Estates Realty repped Calabrese.

    This woman built her ’empire’ on the hard work of others and gives zero credit to the people that broke their backs to get her to where she is. Pathetic.
