You Can Score Tinder Founder Sean Rad’s Relisted Hollywood Hills Home for This Price
If you’re eyeing for a traditional Georgian-style home in a posh neighborhood like Hollywood Hills West and have a budget of $10 million, Tinder founder and former exec Sean Rad just put his house back in the listing – more so, his offer decreased from $10.9 million last year to a cool $9.75 million.
The high-gated European-inspired estate spans more than 5,000 sq ft and includes a main house, a separate guest residence, and a vast swimming pool. If you are a plant-lover, then you will instantly fall in love with this greenery-rich property. The vine-covered main house stays true to its Georgian form with the façade balanced by two bow windows on the first floor.
Upon entering the house, you will be greeted by a wooden staircase and white bust sculpture. Floors are made with varying washes of wood slates that add color to the rather plain interior of the house. To the right from the front door is one of the two living spaces while on the left is the formal dining room.
Classic Meets Modern
The home has two living rooms – the main one is decorated with modern furnishing and art all in neutral tones that contrast the classical structure of the fireplace and bow windows while the second one seems to be more of an entertainment area with a comfortable L-shaped sofa and a flat-screen TV. The second living space also has French doors that lead you to the backyard.
The formal dining room is furnished with a modern industrial dining set, a minimalist wooden buffet, and art-deco inspired golden mirrors, outshining the traditional accent of the room such as the classic chandelier and its medallion.
Meanwhile, the kitchen looks more modern except for the La Cornue range that adds the European touch to the space. Modern fixtures light up the place. The kitchen, like the second living room, also has French doors that will take you to the dining patio.
Secret Garden Yard
There are 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths in the house — one room for the staff or guests at the first level while the rest are upstairs. The master suite has its Versailles touch with gold accents, clean white marble heated floors and countertops, and a standalone tub.
The guesthouse of the estate is located just a few steps from the main house and is like a tiny house complete with a functioning kitchen, spacious lounging area, and a full bath.
The backyard and sideyard will make you think that you are in the Secret Garden because of the grass walls. Matching the greenery is the arched glass roof over the dining patio that is also crept with ivy. To match the aesthetic of the house, planters are also of Georgian style. The property also boasts its gravel motor court and double driveway gates.
Sean bought this property from Paul Hanneman, the former president for marketing and international distribution at Fox Films for $7.65 million in 2016. The house was originally built in 1939.
