Piano-playing YouTube sensation Daniel Thrasher has purchased the Los Angeles home of Isaiah Mustafa, a Hollywood actor who starred in Freeform’s fantasy TV series “Shedowhunters,” but is best known for his iconic — and doubtless highly lucrative — role as “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” in those early 2010s-era Old Spice commercials. Records reveal Thrasher keyed out $2.1 million for the property, $150,000 over the asking price and a whopping $520,000 more than Mustafa paid for the house just three years ago, back in spring 2018.
Though he’s been a YouTuber for well over a decade, Thrasher’s channel has only blown up, so to speak, within the past two years. With 2.7 million subscribers and nearly 400 million lifetime views, the 28-year-old Florida native is noted for his dry sense of humor and intricate comedic sketches, many of which incorporate his musical theatre background.
Built in 2009, the two-story house is described in the listing as a “custom craftsman,” though some commentators may point out that the place looks more akin to a traditional/Cape Cod fusion with elements of Craftsman architecture thrown into the mix. There’s a long, covered porch with views of the (artificial turf) front lawn. Also on tap is an unexpectedly wide driveway that can easily accommodate three cars, plus an attached two-car garage.
Set just a quick skip from Studio City at the base of the eastern Hollywood Hills, the property additionally includes a 2,600-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, plus a roughly 300-square-foot detached structure that is “fully permitted,” per the listing. Naturally, the property’s entire perimeter is ringed by a tall hedge for privacy.
