Celebrity interior design duo Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent have sold their historic home in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, for $11.348 million.
It was a relatively speedy sale for the stars of TLC’s reality show “Nate & Jeremiah by Design,” who listed the stately 1920s home in December for $13.795 million, Mansion Global exclusively reported at the time. The sale closed on Friday, according to Redfin.
Mr. Berkus, 47, a regular expert on Oprah Winfrey’s various shows, and Mr. Brent, 34, his husband and fellow designer, meticulously restored the 8,500-square-foot home, built in 1928 for financier E.S. Rowley.
They preserved the home’s historic character while giving it a mostly cosmetic makeover, updating the kitchen and adding new fixtures and fittings with their self-described “clean, masculine” look, they told Architectural Digest in an interview last year. The pair could not immediately be reached for comment.
The home has five bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a screening room and a library, according to the listing with Brent Watson of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
It also has a separate two-bedroom guesthouse, a pottery room, three parking garages and a side motor court, while the rear garden comes with a dining pavilion, a pool, a koi pond and organic gardens.
Mr. Berkus purchased the house from Marta Kauffman, co-creator of TV sitcom “Friends,” paying $8.18 million for it in 2016, according to records with PropertyShark.
Their decision to sell is not all that surprising. Mr. Berkus told Mansion Global that he has moved eight times in 10 years, adding that he’s drawn to homes like the one he just sold.
“I’m a deep admirer of old homes,” he said in a September interview.
