Never count the McBrooms out! Just when everyone thought they’d heard the last of that wild real estate saga, YouTube’s most controversial family has bounced right back.
For those who don’t care to recall, the ACE Family — comprised of married super-influencers Austin McBroom and Catherine McBroom (née Dolores Paiz), plus their three young children — infamously lost their Woodland Hills mega-mansion to foreclosure late last year, in a bizarre and sordid story involving (allegedly) unlicensed contractors, greedy architects, shady realtors and missing certificates of occupancy.
But if you thought a big and very public foreclosure would render this family homeless, think again. In December, the McBrooms swept themselves into a brand-new rental house, which they proudly showed off in a very intimate YouTube video that has since racked up 4.2 million views and nearly 10,000 comments.
It took some time, but it’s now emerged that the new address is located less than five miles away from the McBrooms’ old home. Nearly every bit as luxurious as their former digs, the house isn’t as massive as that Woodland Hills manse, but the new structure is still palatial by almost any standard. Built new last year, the property is likely worth millions.
Located in Tarzana, an upscale neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley immediately adjacent to Woodland Hills, the nearly one-acre estate includes a large motorcourt, a two-story main house, detached guesthouse, pool and volleyball court. Records reveal the property was built by an Israeli-American couple who have built and leased out other large Valley homes, and was last offered on the rental market at a perilously steep rate of $50,000 per month. (It’s unclear if the McBrooms are paying that hefty amount, or if they negotiated a lower payment.) Per the listing, that $50,000 monthly nut thankfully included all utilities — water, gas, electricity, trash, cable — and the house came fully furnished.
The listing also indicates that the home spans approximately 6,200 square feet, though it’s unclear if that number is the size of the four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom main house alone or if it also includes the separate guesthouse, which sports an additional bedroom and bath. Regardless, the place is quite large and offers plenty of space for the whole family.
