It was never officially listed for sale, but records confirm Colin Farrell has quietly sold his Los Angeles home of 17 years. Located on a secluded street in the hills of Los Feliz, the 1920s Mediterranean villa-style house went for about $5.3 million to Ludwig Ahgren, a professional gamer and longtime Twitch and YouTube streaming sensation.
Farrell acquired the property way back in 2006, paying $4.3 million. The house was never publicly photographed during his tenure, so many of its details remain a mystery, but tax records show the structure packs four bedrooms and four bathrooms into roughly 4,000 square feet of living space. While the place appears humble from the street, semi-hidden behind mature olive trees, it drops down to several stories out back, where there’s also a large patio, outdoor kitchen and an infinity-edge swimming pool.
Born and raised in New Hampshire, Ahgren began publicly streaming his online gameplay circa 2018. In 2021, a widespread data breach revealed he earned $3.3 million in two years solely through Twitch streaming, a sum that did not include his endorsement deals. Since then, Ahgren signed an agreement for an undisclosed amount to move his streaming efforts from Twitch to YouTube, where he has amassed more than 4.1 million subscribers.
Ahgren maintains at least two other multimillion-dollar homes in Southern California — a second Los Feliz residence, which he bought last year from film producer Madeleine Sackler, and a house tucked within a well-known gated community in the city of Diamond Bar, about an hour’s drive east of Los Angeles.
As for Farrell, the Irish-born movie star (“The Batman,”Phone Booth,” “Total Recall,” “SWAT”) has upgraded to a larger compound elsewhere in Los Feliz. Once owned by Oscar-winning Hollywood film director Frank Lloyd, the 1920s Spanish Revival-style estate (below) includes many original details, plus head-on views of Downtown L.A. skycrapers, a movie theater, wine cellar, detached guesthouse and poolside cabana. Farrell paid $5.9 million for the 5,200-square-foot home, which includes a total of five bedrooms and six baths.
