‘Flipping Out’ star Jeff Lewis buys LA estate for $5.92M


Television personality Jeff Lewis has bought himself a new California home shortly after selling his old one. 

The interior designer shelled out slightly more than what he made on his Hollywood Hills home for another Los Angeles property.

The star of Bravo’s long-running, Emmy-nominated “Flipping Out” closed Thursday on a Spanish-style chateau in LA’s Hancock Park neighborhood. Lewis, 52, was represented by Douglas Elliman agent Carrie Berkman Lewis in the purchase, for which he paid $5.92 million.

(In February, he made $5.2 million selling his custom-designed, high-tech Hollywood Hills property, The Post reported at the time.)

Through an oversize front door, the two-story spread features a skylit grand foyer with a sweeping staircase. The home measures 7,366 square feet and is defined by clean white walls, dark wood floors and abundant natural light. The living room boasts original wooden beams and stained glass dating to the 1920s as well as a handcrafted fireplace. There is also a breakfast room in addition to the large kitchen, and the great room leads into the backyard through a pair of double French doors.

Upstairs are six bedrooms, including the primary suite, all with ensuite bathrooms — as well as an office. 

Highlights of the landscaped grounds include an al fresco dining area, a pool, hedges around the perimeter for privacy and a tiered terrace. 

In contrast to his previous residence, which was pegged as an “ultra-private, modern masterpiece,” his new home has much more of an old school, country villa air to it. Seeing as Lewis had added many a personal touch and luxury finish to the Hollywood Hills property during the course of his years there, though, the new home may soon also give off a more contemporary vibe.

The news of Lewis purchase comes on the heels of the announcement that another Lewis show, Amazon Freevee’s “Hollywood Houselift,” has been renewed for a second season.
