YouTubers Ethan & Hila Klein Buy $9 Million Bel Air Mansion

seller: Scott & Laurie Dubchansky
location: Bel Air, Los Angeles, Calif.
price: $9 million
size: 7,563 square feet, 6 beds, 7.5 baths

Married 30-something YouTube stars Hila and Ethan “Papa Bless” Klein — the duo behind the popular h3h3 channel/podcast, which stands millions of subscribers strong — have officially crossed the hill, substantially upgrading their L.A. residential circumstances in the process. Earlier this month, the formerly San Fernando Valley-based couple shelled out a whopping $9 million for a large and unquestionably lavish manor in Bel Air.

The Kleins’ property is located within a 24/7 guard-gated community, the very same enclave where media mega-mogul Rupert Murdoch owns a $28 million vineyard estate that’s just a few doors away from the YouTuber residence. And their new place also happens to sit directly across the street from the longtime home of NBA legend Jerry West.

Built in 2005 by the home’s non-famous financier sellers, the transitional-style manse spans more than 7,500 square feet of luxury living space across three levels. There’s an attached three-car garage, maid’s quarters, formal living and dining rooms, lounge/media room and Crestron full-home automation — the structure’s lights, sound, surveillance and more can be operated remotely, from the touch of a Klein-owned iPad.

Out front, the dark grey home’s facade is partially hidden from the private road by a lovely thicket of mature sycamore trees. Terraced gardens and high hedges encircle the nearly one-acre lot, providing privacy and imbuing the property with a park-like setting. Out back, there are grassy lawns, a dark-bottomed rectangular swimming pool, separate spa and one-bedroom guesthouse.

Interior decor and finishes attempt to straddle the line between traditional and contemporary without favoring either aesthetic; the result is a stylistic mixed bag that excels in certain areas of the home — the minimalist, almost Japanese-inspired skylit foyer, the graceful family room opening via walls of glass to direct pool views.

Large windows flood the entire house with light, and the main level is mostly open and free of inner walls. The structure’s uppermost level holds the giant master suite, outfitted with a built-in soaking tub and walk-in closet with custom cabinetry, and three additional guest/family bedrooms.

In addition to revenue earned through their podcast and multiple YouTube channels, the Kleins also own the apparel company Teddy Fresh, which specializes in vibrantly colorful, patchwork quilt-like clothing and accessories and has attracted a strong cult following since its 2017 debut.

And besides their new $9 million mansion, records reveal the Kleins still own a contemporary Encino house they bought last year for $2.3 million. They also continue to own a perfectly ordinary residence in Woodland Hills, Calif. that was acquired in 2017 for $780,000.

Mark MacFarlane and Chris Adams of Vimvi California held the listing.

    Crazy to contrast where they were a few years ago to where they are now. They also don’t flash their cash like other YouTubers *coughjakepaulcough*

    I’m sorry but HOW TF do these two afford a 9 million mansion?? All from some cheap clothing line, seriously?? No wonder their podcast has gone downhill since 2017, theyre all about the money now.

    1. H says:

      Yo, their clothing line isn’t cheap. It’s great quality and actually at the moment they are giving away a $100000 to all of their fans going through a difficult time right now. They worked for their money so they can spend it how they please. Don’t be a hater, you would probably live in a luxurious house like this if you made the money they did.

  3. Maxim says:

    Sorry but what are these two doing except some clothing and yt? This is unnormal that they have so much money from nowhere and like wtf for example maybe if these two wouldnt have so much money which they will spend on total bullshit compared to money that could be spent on looking for some coronavirus medication by some doctors scientists whatever.
    World is hilarious and people who make stupid people famous,for real.
    Its all going in the wrong direction.

      You ever heard of Casey Neistat? Yeah, internet success becomes incredibly rewarding when you’re “good” friends with the CEO of the company you work with. Plus, their channel has been there for quite a long time. They also have 3 separate youtube channels, which are equally as successful, my guy. Teddy Fresh itself is in the same league of different brands like Guess or Cloak, teenagers, kids, and young adults buy their products like it’s candy. Being a millionaire is not that hard nowadays anyways lol. Also, do you really think the couple bought the house in just one sitting? That’s not how mortgage works. You pay monthly, annually, etc until you can pay off the amounts that are owed to the home itself. Nobody in their right mind would spend 9-10 million dollars in one day to buy a home, that is a terrible career and life choice to follow lol. Anyone can be famous for the stupidest things though, but I think H3 has earned his wealth and personal investments, despite being a sack of two-faced shit sometimes. I think people need to also stop judging a character so quickly. Do your research on the guy. He’s struggled too, just like everyone else has. Maybe understandably watch what you’re saying before you decide to slew shit on his personal life.

    To be honest I think it’s amazing on how successful these two are from not being able to afford a red bell pepper to buying a house like this. All I can do is respect these two. Papa bless
