David Dobrik has purchased a new $9.5 million mansion in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley after struggling to keep his widely-recognized party home in Studio City private from his fans.
The 24-year-old Slovak YouTube star has upgraded to a 7,800 square foot property located in the desirable Longridge Estates neighborhood in Sherman Oaks and even got a deal on the home, which was previously listed for $12 million, according to Variety.
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the newly constructed mansion features six bedrooms, seven bedrooms, luxury amenities — and panoramic city, canyon, and mountain views.
Privacy was likely on David’s mind when he bought the two-story property, which has double gates and a private driveway with a four-car garage.
The mansion’s grand entry and open living room will make quite an impression on guests thanks to its Fleetwood walls of glass that overlook the city and terrazzo floors.
The large glass doors fully open, making the home perfect for seamless indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. Meanwhile, the family room has a large fireplace that is encased by crocodile embossed leather.
There is also an at-home movie theater for quiet nights in, a home gym, and a custom-crafted temperature-controlled wine room that holds 300 bottles.
The gourmet chef’s kitchen features a center island, state-of-the-art Miele appliances, and Italian-made cabinets. In keeping with the minimalistic design, an Italian book-matched marble backdrop complements the hidden functional amenities.
With five bedroom suites and one office, the Vlog Squad leader has plenty of space for himself and rooms for guests.
David likely took the master bedroom, and it’s easy to see why. The large open floor plan features ceiling suede panels, a mini-bar, and a living area with a marble-encased fireplace.
The opulent suite has its own private views of the valley and pocket-door balconies that can make the YouTuber at one with nature — from the comfort of his own home.
The master bathroom is fit for a king with a steam shower, Graff rain showerheads, and body sprays for the ultimate spa experience.
There is also a free-standing tub that is situated by the balcony, so David can soak up the views while enjoying a soak.
The outside of the mansion is just as impressive as the inside and offers an infinity pool and spa, a lounge area with a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen with a BBQ station, and grassy lawn space.
David’s new home also has plenty of security features, including interior and exterior cameras throughout and a secured automated gated driveway.
Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker and Craig Knizek of The Agency jointly held the listing, while Weston Littlefield of the Aaron Kirman group at Compass represented David in the sale.
Privacy has been an ongoing issue for the YouTube star, who has more than 18 million subscribers to his channel.
Since 2017, David and his team members had lived in his Mediterranean-style house in Studio City, which he had purchased for about $2.5 million.
The home, which also overlooked the valley, was where he pulled off many of his pranks. It was also photographed for Architectural Digest last year.
The location became widely-known by fans, and David and his assistant Natalie Mariduena were plagued by unwanted intrusions.
Back in December, David posted an Instagram Story video begging his fans not to come to his home anymore.
‘This is crazy that I’m still making these stories,’ he said. ‘I literally feel like a broken record — I sound like my parents. But stop coming here, please. I don’t wanna have to move, but this is terrifying.’
The plea didn’t seem to work, however. In March, someone shared the address to David’s old home in a since-deleted Reddit post.
While his house hunt may have been temporarily halted by the coronavirus pandemic, it looks like he was able to find his dream home at just the right time.
