Now that Perez Hilton has officially relocated to Las Vegas, he’s opted to offload his longtime residence in the Mid-City neighborhood of Los Angeles. Records show the notorious Internet gossip columnist and podcaster is asking a smidge under $4.2 million for the Spanish-Colonial spread, or around $1.3 million more than he paid for the place back in winter 2015.
Built way back in 1926, but renovated and expanded through the years, the stucco and terracotta-roof structure is nestled amid an irregular quarter-acre parcel, tucked away in the Carthay Circle historic preservation overlay zone. Fronted by a manicured lawn laced with flowers and trimmed shrubbery, the property features a main house and detached guesthouse — for a total of six bedrooms and five baths in a little more than 3,600 square feet of living space.
As for the primary home, a gothic-style arched wood door notched into a striking turreted entryway opens into a double-height foyer. From there, steps head up to a fireside living room resting beneath a whitewashed wood-beam ceiling, and an adjacent dining room flows to a lounge area sporting a fireplace flanked by custom built-in shelving. A gourmet kitchen outfitted with high-end Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances connects to a windowed breakfast nook/workstation with French doors spilling outside.
Two separate bedroom wings include one holding a spacious master suite spotlighted by a designer showroom closet, plus a marble-clad bath equipped with dual vanities, a soaking tub and glassy shower. The other wing features two bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bath; and the aforementioned turret holds an additional en-suite bedroom that’s currently being used as an office.
Outdoors, the private backyard hosts a flagstone terrace and shaded lanai ideal for al fresco lounging and entertaining, along with a plunge pool and spa. The aforementioned guesthouse comes complete with its own living room, galley-style kitchen and an en-suite bedroom; and there’s also a two-car garage.
