Shaun White Lists His Midcentury Modern Hideaway in the Hollywood Hills for $5 Million

Almost a year ago, Shaun White and his longtime partner, The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev, jointly purchased an updated midcentury modern home secluded high in the hills above Hollywood. So it’s hardly surprising that White’s old house—a smaller but no less stylish and glass-walled midcentury modern elsewhere in the Hollywood Hills—has now popped up for sale, asking exactly $5 million.

White bought his former bachelor pad in 2018, paying $3.8 million, and has since given the circa-1955 post and beam-style structure a much-needed contemporary makeover, transforming the dowdy and dated interiors into terrazzo-floored and white-walled open spaces that more accurately reflect the home’s groovy heyday.

Due to the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout that flood the place with natural light, the house feels larger than its cozy stats would suggest. Per tax records and listing information, the structure has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in less than 1,900 square feet.

The house itself lies out of public view, shielded from passersby by a concrete wall and a gated entryway.

Tucked away on a little-known cul-de-sac in the Outpost Estates neighborhood, the 0.33-acre property offers a two-car carport and a petite driveway. The house itself is screened off from the street via a cement block wall painted a crisp white, while a gated walkway leads past a long thicket of bamboo on its way to the front door.

Once inside the residence, guests will be wowed by the combo living/dining/kitchen area, which is essentially one huge room full of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Hollywood and the L.A. skyline. The kitchen sports new cabinetry and premium stainless appliances, while sliding glass doors effortlessly blur the line between indoors and out.

Neither of the bedrooms or bathrooms are particularly large, but they all are nicely updated. At least one of the bedrooms has direct access to the backyard, where a classic kidney-shaped pool reigns supreme and is surrounded by tropically-landscaped patio area ideal for dedicated sunbathers. Beyond that, a big grassy lawn tumbles down to a fire-pit seating area with more big views of the city lights.

In an odd coincidence—or maybe it’s really not—White’s for-sale Hollywood Hills home happens to sit right next door to much larger contemporary mansion that he also used to own. After buying that larger house in 2015 for $6.4 million, White flipped the place two years later for $6.7 million to Shark Tank judge Robert Herjavec, who eventually sold the house at a loss to its current owner, a non-famous businessman.

White, 37, is a retired professional snowboarder and three-time Olympic gold medalist in half-pipe snowboarding. The San Diego native is also an entrepreneur with an ownership stake in Mammoth Mountain and his own lifestyle brand.
