Sterling ‘Steelo’ Brim, the charismatic co-host and producer of MTV’s hit show Ridiculousness, known for his quick wit and infectious laughter, has found his slice of paradise in L.A.’s family-friendly Encino neighborhood.
Dropping a cool $4.150 million back in 2020 for the then-newly built manse, Brim’s move into the celeb-favored enclave added another star to Encino’s glittering firmament.
Fast forward two years and Brim proudly showcased his stunning home on a segment of the revamped MTV Cribs, giving fans a personal tour of his lavish lifestyle and impeccable taste. And we’re here to fill you in on all the details that didn’t make their way into the video tour.
Especially since we’re intimately familiar with the Encino residence, which we covered extensively when it first came to market back in November 2019. Maya Librush at The Agency held the listing.
He paid $4,150,000 for the stylish new build
Ridiculousness host Steelo Brim lives in a 6,000-square-foot home that was built just two years before he purchased it in October 2020 for $4,150,000.
The modern farmhouse-inspired abode has five bedrooms, seven baths, and an array of jaw-dropping amenities that blend seamlessly with the California lifestyle.
Fun fact: Brim’s Encino house sits on the same street as Cher’s house in ‘Clueless’ (that’s right, while said to be in Beverly Hills, the 1995 cult movie featured a San Fernando Valley house as the Horowitz residence).
Key numbers & facts
- Location: Encino, Los Angeles CA
- Bedrooms: 5
- Bathrooms: 7
- Square footage: 6,000
- Year built: 2018
- Lot size: 0.27 acres
- Amenities: a recreation/billiards room, wet bar and kitchenette, a walk-in wine room, a home gym, home theater, a basketball court, putting green, and a backyard with a resort-style swim-up bar in the grand pool

- Purchase price: $4,150,000 (October 2020)
Seeing that Brim purchased the home at the height of the pandemic house-buying craze, well before interest rates shot up, he had to pay a little over the asking price to land the property, which was listed for $3,985,000.
But he definitely got his money’s worth, as we’re about to see.
A look inside Steelo Brim’s house & its many amenities
Walking past the short white wall and through the gates of Brim’s transitional-style abode, you’re greeted by a sleek exterior of smooth white stucco accented with jet-black trim—an early hint at the elegance that lies within.
Boasting a modern farmhouse-inspired design — a common architectural style for the area, which has proven to attract star power to the neighborhood, as Michael B. Jordan’s stylish farmhouse shows — Steelo Brim’s house blends modern architecture with classic elegance.
Step through the pivoting wooden door, and you enter a world where contemporary design meets homely warmth. You’re welcomed by a grand entryway with unique water features, a floating walkway, and vaulted ceilings.
The great room—a harmonious blend of the living room, dining area, and kitchen—sets the tone with its vaulted ceilings, pale hardwood floors, and a linear fireplace that demands attention, all basking in the glow of natural light.
The kitchen, a marvel in its own right, boasts Calacatta marble countertops that echo the home’s refined aesthetic, complemented by a contemporary chandelier in the dining area that adds a touch of modern sophistication.
It also has state-of-the-art Thermador appliances and an oversized island.
Ascend to the master bedroom, and you’re met with a cozy fireplace, a vast window flooding the space with light, and a private patio that offers a serene overlook of the backyard oasis.
The en-suite bathroom, with its clawfoot soaking tub, vanity area, and walk-in steam shower, is a spa-like retreat promising relaxation and luxury.
Additionally, there’s also a huge walk-in closet and dressing room, masterfully designed bathrooms, and stunning fireplaces in the living room, the master bedroom, and the outdoor lounging area.
The backyard is an entertainer’s dream, featuring a large rectangular pool and spa, a sunken BBQ area, and an ultra-luxe pool house—ensuring that every day feels like a vacation.
More outdoor amenities that add to the charm (and fun) are a basketball court, a putting green, and a resort-style swim-up bar in the grand pool.
There’s also a sanctuary seating area with serene views, an oversized steam shower, and an 18K gold applique fireplace, just for opulence’s sake.
And for those rare chilly L.A. evenings, the estate’s indoor perks like a movie theater, a wine cellar with a tasting area, and a game room with a wet bar ensure the entertainment never ends.
It’s clear that this Ridiculousness star, who reportedly rakes in around $140,000 per episode, has invested not just in a property, but in creating a haven that reflects his success and personality. And we couldn’t be happier for him, especially knowing that he made his fortunes by making us laugh.
