Not even nine months ago he wanted the hillside home badly enough he paid six-thousand dollars over the $3.495 million asking price. Alas, it seems TV personality Vinny Guadagnino, who started up his ladder of reality TV fame as an original cast member on MTV’s pop culture powerhouse “Jersey Shore,” has caught a raging case of the real estate fickle because he’s already put his Hollywood-pedigreed neo-Mediterranean home high above L.A.’s Sunset Strip back on the market at $3.85 million.
Measuring in at a tad below 2,700 square feet, the three-bedroom and two-and-a-half-bath home was previously owned by “Suicide Squad” and “In Treatment” actor Joel Kinnaman, who after nearly 1.5-years on the market, sold the modestly sized home over the summer of 2017 for $2.245 million, a notable loss on the $2.45 million he’d paid three years earlier. The bargain-seeking buyer, an investor and attorney, considerably updated and modernized the interiors before it was sold to Gauadagnino, a.k.a. the self-described Keto Guido who, along with fellow “Jersey Shore” castmate Pauly D, seeks romantic love — or some reality TV version thereof — on MTV’s “silly, and pretty entertaining” dating game series “Double Shot at Love.”
Set almost close enough to the serpentine street to reach out and touch it from a passing car, the two-story home’s unassuming, generically Mediterranean exterior — ochre stucco, clay roof tiles and an arched porch entry — hides a decidedly contemporary, pared-down interior that showcases pale wood floors, cotton-white molding-free walls and a bevy of high-tech creature comforts that include a sophisticated home-automation system that controls the lighting, heating, cooling and audio-visual systems.
