Jeffree Star is saying goodbye to his bubblegum pink-mansion seven months after moving into his $14.6 million dream home, but he is actually losing money on the sale.
The 34-year-old YouTuber listed the 6,785-square-foot home in Calabasas, California for $3.595 million, $25,000 less than he paid when he purchased the property for $3.62 million four years ago, according to Variety.
Not only is the price slightly lower, but it also doesn’t reflect how much money Star put into the home’s custom fixtures, including the hundreds of thousands of dollars he spent on a closet bank vault to house his collection of designer luxury goods.
The vault can only be accessed with a fingerprint and retina scan, and when he was living in the home, he had it guarded by an armed officer who stood outside the bulletproof door to the closet 24 hours a day.
While the Jeffree Star Cosmetics founder gave a tour of the high-tech closet in a viral YouTube video in May 2019, the listing doesn’t include any mention or photos of the standout custom feature.
Marc and Sara Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices are currently in charge of listing of the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom estate, which Star previously called his ‘Barbie Dreamhouse.’
The property is located within the Calabasas Park Estates gated community, and while it looks like your typical California mansion from the outside, the interiors are in a league of their own.
The home is decorated with shades of bubblegum-pink paint, fabrics, and fixtures, including pink curtains and two pink chandeliers in the kitchen. According to Star, the pink tufted leather that covers the staircase walls was ‘installed by several craftsmen.’
However, the home’s description doesn’t mention the pink interiors, which are impossible to miss in the photos, and, instead, focuses on the property’s best features.
According to the listing, the estate has a chef’s kitchen with two islands and a breakfast bar, a formal dining room, a large family room with a wet bar and fireplace, and a two-story entry foyer that is described as being ‘warm, inviting, and filled with natural light.’
The master bedroom features an all stone bath, spa tub, a glass-encased shower, and a walk-out balcony that overlooks the neighborhood.
As Variety pointed out, the home notably lacks a swimming pool, but there is certainly enough room in the backyard for one to be added.
The listing comes less than a year after the YouTuber dropped an astonishing $14.6 million on a mega-mansion for himself and his now ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt.
The deed to the estate in Hidden Hills, California closed in December, and the beauty mogul moved into the more than 25,000 square-foot property right before Christmas.
Star’s new mansion, which boasts eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, is a considerable upgrade from his pink home, which he said goodbye to in an emotional video last winter.
Star opened up about his new home and how ‘f**king excited’ he was to move into a larger space on his Instagram Stories at the time.
‘For Christmas I was like, “B***h I’m ready to move.” Me and Nathan, we’ve outgrown this house right here two years ago, b***h. I look like a hoarder, there’s been no room,’ he said.
Upgrades and repairs were in progress so he could officially move in before the holidays.
Jeffrey’s old home, which neighbors elite celebrities such as Will Smith, was expected to be listed weeks later, but it didn’t hit the market until this summer.
His new Hidden Hills community is an opulent neighborhood for celebrities thanks to the number of million-dollar mansions overlooking Los Angeles.
Star’s new neighbors include the likes of Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Drake, The Weeknd, and John Stamos.
His recent purchase is one of the more extravagant mansions in the community of nearly 700 homes, all of which are guarded by three main gated entrances.
Upon entering the more than 25,000 square-foot home, visitors are greeted with a large entryway and a double staircase leading up to the second floor.
The eight bedrooms and 13 bathrooms likely provide plenty of space for Star and his four dogs: Delicious, DaVinci, Diva, and Drama.
If the main home is not enough, the property has two separate guest houses for when Star wants to entertain family and friends. The mansion also boasts a 4,700 square-foot garage to park Star’s luxury vehicles.
The Hidden Hills mansion was built in 2007, according to Variety, and then acquired by financier Jeff Feinberg and part-time actress Stacey Feinberg in May 2010 for $13 million.
The couple briefly lived in the mansion before moving out during their divorce.
Who lived in the home following the Feinberg’s remains unclear, but it is believed the home remained relatively empty for a few years before Star purchased the property.
The home went on and off the market multiple times in recent years, but the buyers at the time fell through.
Star’s new home includes a dramatic ballroom, a master bathroom complete with a sauna, a spa room, two-story gym, and wine cellar.
The YouTuber and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics, who has an estimated net worth of $200 million, has likely found entertaining outdoors more enjoyable thanks to his new home’s amenities.
The backyard includes a large pool in the center of the space with an outdoor kitchen and built-in BBQ area nearby.
If that wasn’t enough, the property has an unfinished barn that could be converted into a third guesthouse or even a studio space for Star to film his many YouTube videos.
Star completely transformed his old home that is now on the market to fit his colorful lifestyle.
He outfitted the home with pink walls, mirrors, and even a pink vault to hold his designer handbags and accessories. When designing the vault, it was created with reportedly 10,000 pounds of bulletproof stainless steel.
When Star unveiled the vault on his YouTube channel, he said at the time he planned to keep his first home forever.
‘This was my first home I ever bought,’ Star said. ‘It’s so special to me, and I’m probably going to keep it for the rest of my life.’
But that all changed in October 2019 when he announced on Twitter that he was house hunting with his boyfriend. Just weeks after moving into his new home, Star revealed that he and Schwandt had broken up after five years together.
Star’s big move came just weeks after he unveiled a phenomenally successful beauty collaboration with fellow YouTuber Shane Dawson, who documented the entire behind-the-scenes process that went into creating the line for a docu-series on his own channel.
The pair is understood to have raked in a staggering $54 million from the project.
Launchmetrics noted that figure as the entire Media Impact Value, which takes into account the money earned from sales of the sold-out range, as well as the funds earned from the accompanying YouTube series.
Star’s team also previously stated that beauty retailer Morphe, which sells the YouTuber’s products, expected $17.5 million in in-store sales from the collaboration.
The sell-out success of the products on Star’s own website then made an additional estimated $17.5 million in revenue — totaling a whopping $35 million altogether.
Dawson is believed to have walked away with around $10 million from the venture.
