Successful realtor and “Selling Sunset” star Jason Oppenheim has added another notch to his proverbial SoCal real estate belt. As first reported by the Orange County Register, the Los Angeles-based president and founder of The Oppenheim Group has purchased a sprawling mansion in the Upper Back Bay area of Newport Beach. As one would expect, the place is chock-full of posh creature comforts in keeping with his go-big-or-go-home lifestyle.
So, what’s Oppenheim’s favorite room in his new house? It’s a tie! “I think it would have to be both the movie theater and the game room, which has a pool table, Ping-Pong table and foosball table, as well as an arcade,” he says.
Per property records, the ritzy residence was originally listed for nearly $10 million back in July and reduced to $9 million in August, before ultimately selling to Oppenheim for a significantly discounted $7 million. This is the second O.C. home he’s purchased within the past six months. Shortly after opening a boutique brokerage along Pacific Coast Highway in the Corona del Mar neighborhood back in April — a complement to his longtime Sunset Strip office in L.A. — he doled out $2.8 million for a far smaller, traditional-style affair in the affluent Dover Shores enclave, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms in just over 2,400 square feet.
Built in 2017, Oppenheim’s latest acquisition is nestled securely behind gates and protected by a security system. Sited on a half-acre parcel, near the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve and Ecological Reserve, the structure includes six bedrooms and eight baths spread across 12,500 square feet of living space on two levels. Luxe amenities include two garages with room for 11 cars — one attached to the house, the other also holding a full gym — plus a wine cellar, office, the aforementioned game room and movie theater, the latter of which is soundproof and clad in memory foam carpet. There’s even a dog-washing station for Oppenheim’s male and female chihuahuas, Niko and Zelda.
A gourmet kitchen is outfitted with high-end stainless appliances, leathered granite countertops, and a duo of islands topped with scratch-proof and stain-resistant Kedra porcelain, plus a butler’s pantry. The house’s master retreat has its own wing: a 1,000-square-foot space boasting a fireplace, showroom closet, spa-like bath with a brass soaking tub and an office space that can double as a nursery, per the listing.
Out back is a resort-style yard with a pool and spa flanked by firepits, a bar, several lounge areas, and a 1,500-square-foot outdoor kitchen sporting an oversized glass refrigerator, ice machine and built-in barbecue with a rotisserie grill and warming drawer. Rounding it all out: an attached guest house with its own entry.
In addition to his pair of Newport Beach pads, Oppenheim, 44, also owns a quartet of homes in L.A., including a nearly 5,000-square-foot Mount Olympus house he paid $5.1 million for in October 2020, and three rental properties in the Hollywood Hills. “Selling Sunset” returns to Netflix in November, with the season-four plot line expected to focus on the Newport Beach office opening and Oppenheim’s budding relationship with agent/show costar Chrishell Stause.
Oppenheim handled both sides of the deal, with Alexandra Rose of The Oppenheim Group sharing the listing.
