Historic Old Hollywood Charm: See Inside Vanessa Hudgens’ Luxurious Los Feliz Estate

After searching for five years, Vanessa Hudgens found the perfect Georgian colonial estate in Los Feliz, Calif. to call home. Find out how the High School Musical star transported an old Hollywood home into her “French” and “vibey” dream house.

Nicknamed “The Little DeMille,” iconic Hollywood filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille built the stunning Los Feliz house for his mistress in 1922.

And now, the Princess Switch star, 32, is opening up the doors of the updated home to Architectural Digest for an exclusive tour.

From her DIY remodel in the kitchen, to her “obsession” with candlesticks and vintage books, to the “sexy” and “cave-like” bathroom, here’s the full scoop on Vanessa Hudgens’ luxe Los Angeles home.

An historic Hollywood home transformed into the perfect “escape” 

According to Daily Mail, Hudgens purchased the luxurious Los Feliz home from Academy Award-winning actor Gary Oldman. After a 5-year house hunt, Hudgens bought the home in December 2018 for just under $5 million. 

The 3,168 square foot Georgian colonial home retains many of its original features. 

Sitting on a half-acre, the stunning estate includes three bedrooms and four bathrooms with a separate one-bed, one-bath guesthouse that sits over a detached two-car garage.

Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, the historic Los Feliz home provides the perfect escape for the Tick, Tick…Boom! actress. 

“There were so many things about it that struck me,” Hudgens tells AD of her plush property.

She adds: “Walking through the gate and seeing this house covered in ivy, surrounded by olive trees, it was like I had been transported to France or Italy. It felt like such an escape.”

Sisters unite! Ashley Tisdale helped Hudgens with the DIY decor

BFF to the rescue!

While Hudgens always “wanted an old home,” there’s no escaping the upkeep and renovations with an older building.

After purchasing the house three years ago, Hudgens enlisted the help of her High School Musical costar and good pal Ashley Tisdale. 

“I got new marble, painted the cabinets, got new knobs and drawer pulls—I really wanted brass. My girlfriend Ashley Tisdale does interior design, and I got her advice on where to shop,” Hudgens says.

Hudgens also hired Jake Arnold to help bring her overall vision together, including a vast collection of vintage books, colorful art pieces, the perfect lighting for all her house plants, and a wide selection of candlesticks. 

“I wanted it to be casual, relaxed and cozy,” she says of the interior design, adding, “I’m a big fan of candlesticks, so you will notice them everywhere.”

The luxe Los Feliz pad also has this “big selling point”

Amid the big plants, abstract art and witchy books, Hudgens couldn’t help but gush about the home’s fabulous floors.

“Oh and the floors!” she boasts.

The herringbone wood parquets “were a big selling point for me when I saw this house,” she shares. 

Made from 18th-century French oak taken from an old chapel in Europe, the floors were originally added by Oldman.

Hudgens took on a pandemic project to improve her new home

Admitting that her kitchen looked “very different” when she moved in, the Powerless star remodeled it during the pandemic.

“I took it upon myself to have a project, and put it all together,” Hudgens says of the DIY project.

“I painted the cabinets, removed some cabinets, and put big oak beams for open shelving,” shares the actress.

Including eccentric wallpaper featuring mushrooms and dragons, Hudgens decorated the breakfast nook with designs from the House of Hackney.

“I figured, Why not? I did what I like to call a facelift to it,” Hudgens says of her kitchen renovations. 

The funky wallpaper rests above a custom booth, inspired from “the dopest place ever.”

“I had the booth made for this space,” says Hudgens. “I was really inspired by the restaurant Maison Premiere, this absinthe and oyster bar in New York. It’s the dopest place ever.”

The actress also added extra tile, made of Carrara marble, from the primary bath for the backsplash.

A look at the romantic, the sexy and the cave-like features throughout the plush property 

Hudgens invites fans into her “romantic” dining room, which features an Italian chandelier from 1stdibs. 

Admitting she doesn’t cook often, Hudgens says, “I’m normally a ‘Let’s get everyone over, have a drink or two, put on a playlist, and then we all figure out what we want to eat and I just order it’ type of host.”

Heading upstairs, the Grease: Live star shows off her bedroom that features feminine art and pops of orange.

“For some reason I just really fell in love with the idea of orange for my bedroom,” she shares.

Hudgens is all about body-positivity, and shows fans a nude painting in her bedroom. “I wanted the house to be super feminine, to celebrate women’s bodies, to be a kind of femme palace,” Hudgens says.

When in California, enjoy the sunshine! The beautiful backyard features a pool, pizza oven, fire pit and plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.

“I wanted a yard that felt like a park where I could run around with my friends, have space to play, and just feel safe,” Hudgens shares.

Saving the best for last, Hudgens shows off her Goth black bathroom which is one of her “favorite places in the house.”

Featuring marble countertops, black walls and an egg-shaped tub, Hudgens went for a cave-like aesthetic in the primary bathroom. 

“The bathroom is a sexy cave,” shares the actress.

What You Need to Know to Get Through This Volatile Financial Time

Save more, spend smarter, and make your money go further

As we’ve entered 2022 and the pandemic is still upon us, a lot of Minters are asking, “What do I need to know about what’s happening in the economy and stock market, and how does it all affect my finances?”

When investing, whether it is in real estate, the stock market, or crypto market, it is always important to remember your long-term game plan and investment philosophy. There are a lot of new investors on the scene and many have not yet experienced bear markets or extreme market volatility and don’t understand the principles of not reacting emotionally when they see their accounts down. If you are investing for the future, then focus on having the right allocation mix, understanding market volatility and risk, and don’t react emotionally when you see your accounts down. Remember, short-term fluctuation is not a long-term loss and you only lose money if you sell at a loss. 

Spend time to learn, or remind yourself of, smart investing principles and never panic, sell, or get lost in your emotions when it comes to making financial decisions. The news will always (and I mean always) be a chicken little crying, “the sky is falling, the sky is falling,” but any successful investor will tell you to keep your investment philosophy front and center, and not react to market swings unless something major changes in your financial life and, therefore, changes your goals.

To help you review your finances and get an updated plan for 2022, here are 10 important things you can do right now with your money: 

1. Don’t panic

Easier said than done, but during volatile times, it is important to remain calm and centered and not react from a place of fear. It is wise to express any emotions you may have about what is going on with a trusted family member, friend, or licensed therapist and use your network of professionals to help guide you during this time. Take advantage of this time to start meditating or doing other activities to keep you centered and calm. 

2. Have a plan

You always need a solid budget and financial plan, and in times like these, you can then be more present and clear with what is happening. Most people who have a solid budget and financial plan that they’ve set up in Mint or have been working with a financial planner, will find that they don’t need to react much to the unforeseen circumstances and hopefully have been getting prepared for a market downturn. 

3. Review your plan with your financial planner

You should review your plan often, but especially during times like this, you can review again to ensure you are doing everything properly with your money. If you don’t have a financial planner, now is the time to get one. Check out www.cfpboard.net for a planner who fits your needs.

4. Review your budget and cut out any unnecessary expenses

You can log into your Mint app and do a deep dive into all your monthly expenses to see if there is any thing you can cut out, like memberships or subscriptions you no longer use. With any freed up cash you create by eliminating or reducing expenses, you can decide what financial goal you want to save that for. Mint has a great feature to help you create financial goals and set up automatic savings toward them so you see the progress you’re looking for to reach those financial goals you have.

5. Consider refinancing debt into lower interest rates

The Federal interest rates are rising and that means now is a great time to lock in low rates before they continue to rise. Review the interest rates on credit cards, mortgages and other personal debts but make sure to talk to a professional as it does not always make sense to refinance debt. Do your research and make sure you understand your options carefully.

6. Don’t invest short-term money into long-term investments

This is a given but even more critical during this time. You should always have your short-term goals like Cash Cushion, Home Down Payment, and Travel in high yield savings accounts and not invested in the stock market. The reason is because you never want to take money from your investment accounts when they may be down (for example, the current scenario) to cover your short-term money needs. 

7. Keep the long-term in mind with long-term investments 

This is also a given but keep in mind that you should only invest your money in the stock market for the longer term, as you have time on your side to recover from this and whatever comes in the future.

8. Invest excess cash

Having an adequate cash cushion is key throughout your lifetime as it allows for a cushion during emergencies, times of reduced income or major unexpected expenses. That said, having too much in cash is not good, especially with inflation at about 6.8% right now. Review how much you need as a cash cushion and then invest the right in assets like real estate, the stock market, etc. that can help grow your money faster than inflation over time. 

9. Look for opportunities

Are there ways you can make more money right now? Use this time to use your unique skill set and create an online course or create and sell other products or services that provide value to others. Because most are left with more time on their hands, choose to use it wisely. 

10. Educate yourself on money management and investing principles

Continue reading blogs like this to educate yourself on smart money management strategies and investing principles. Mint has a lot of valuable money content that can help you at any stage of life. Now could be the perfect time to kick your financial literacy into high gear. 

Hope this blog provided you some helpful insight to help you make the most of 2022!

Bling Empire’s Kane Lim Lists $1,888M House with Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause

While he may be busy filming for season 2 and 3 of the popular reality show Bling Empire, Kane Lim is still taking care of business.

He just listed his new house for sale, a 1,516-square-foot midcentury modern in Mount Washington, a historic neighborhood in the San Rafael Hills of Northeast Los Angeles.

This home overlooks Mt. Washington and sits in a unique position with great views. For me, a view is very important as it gives the owner a very zen feeling,” Lim said about his newly listed home.

One of the listing agents for the property is none other than Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause. The Oppenheim Group agent, who recently bought her own dream house, holds the listing alongside Yonathan Baltazar of The Agency.

You can see the two reality stars tour the house in this cute video Kane Lim posted to his Instagram account:

Lim, who’s a bona fide real estate developer who made his fortune through a series of well-placed investments, won fans over with his infectious personality, keen sense of style, and friendly nature.

On season 1 of Bling Empire, he didn’t shy away from showing off his glitzy habits and luxurious lifestyle.

But his newest investment property isn’t like the palatial abodes we see on his Netflix show. Described as a “tranquil Mount Washington oasis,” the house is all about comfort, timeless design, and an approachable elegance.

It’s not the biggest house in the world, but it is a very livable house and a house to be enjoyed for many years to come,” Kane said for Fancy Pants Homes. “This trend of mid-century is not going to go anywhere as it has so much soul and history,” he added.

Public records show that Kane Lim paid $932,000 for the property which has seen significant improvements during his ownership.

In fact, the listing mentions that the 3-bedroom home has been ‘fully reimagined’ and includes ‘brand new carpentry, appliances, fixtures and seamless built-ins.’

Originally built in 1955, the Mount Washington home retains its original charm, but offers a fresh, contemporary take on the timeless midcentury style.

Lim turned to lauded architectural firm OWIU (which stands for the only way is up) to update the property, building on its mid-century modern legacy. The company’s co-founders, Amanda Gunawan and Joel Wong, took on the project themselves, to extraordinary results.

The home is very unique. I look for investments that can tell a story, not just for profit, and I’m really proud of Joel and his team for executing this home to perfection“, says Lim.

With bright, warm interiors, the 1,516-square-foot home looks almost curated, with each and every detail being carefully picked to highlight the property’s many merits.

Light oak wood is used throughout the home, with Japanese and Scandinavian design elements adding to its zen factor.

All in all, Kane Lim’s house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a chic living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a dining area, and a meticulously appointed kitchen with a spacious island and breakfast bar.

The primary suite includes custom built-in wardrobes, a bed platform, amazing views, a beautiful bathroom with a double vanity and a deck that leads to a Japanese-style garden with bonsai and maple trees.

Outside, we also find a updated backyard that features fresh pathways and gardening beds, a gate that leads to the lower portion of the property, and a large open space that has a sculptural staircase and custom wood bench surrounding a fire pit. There’s also a two-car garage on the property.

“4115 Palmero exemplifies how you can update a Mid Century by making subtle yet significant changes throughout but still preserve the home’s history,” says Yonathan Baltazar, the property’s co-listing agent.

LA is home to some of the most character rich properties and there’s a lot of architectural diversity specifically in North East LA,” he adds.

And he should. Raised in Los Angeles, Yonathan Baltazar has long been helping home buyers find the best place to settle in the community, offering his insight into North East L.A. and the area’s most historic neighborhoods.

Working with two reality stars on his newest listing, we just had to ask him if he watched the Netflix shows in which his client and co-listing agent star in.

I’ve watched and love both! I met Kane before Bling Empire aired and I can tell you he is exactly the way you see him on Netflix, he’s great! I also really enjoyed Selling Sunset because it showcases Luxury Real Estate in LA and I’m an agent so I’m always looking at the designs of the homes.

And while we wait for new seasons to come out, we’ll settle on this off-screen crossover between the two Netflix shows — and keep our fingers crossed that Lim’s newest investment property makes its way into the new Selling Sunset season.

But just in case it doesn’t, and you want to see more of Kane Lim’s lovely midcentury, you check out the listing here.
