The reality star purchased the place in 2016 for $6.5 million. Six years later, the jump in price reflects the major work and the serious dough she has poured into the historic home.
Located in the Hancock Park neighborhood, the notable abode is also known as the “Cheaper by the Dozen” house, because it was featured in the 2003 movie.
Since then, the home has been transformed from a home suitable for a family film into a seriously sensational showpiece, with period touches throughout.
Making her mark
The home’s dramatic do-over extends outside, to the blood-red pool.
A crimson palette is used throughout the interior, which has an abundance of ornate details.
As the listing puts it, “No expense was spared in the meticulous restoration” of this historic property.
Built in the 1890s, the home was moved to its current location in 1915. The three-story Victorian sprawls across 12,565 square feet and contains 11 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms.
If that’s not enough space, the property also has a two-bedroom carriage house on top of the large garage.
A traditional layout opens to a grand salon, den, and formal sitting room. The dining room is lined with paneled walls and stained-glass windows, and is connected to the chef-quality kitchen.
Other highlights include an opulent ballroom, a top-floor theater and bar, a turret side room, and a hidden bar on the main level. Outside, the backyard offers the statement pool, a spa, and manicured gardens.
The eye-catching home, dubbed Casa Von D, often shows up on the entrepreneur’s social media account.
Leaving Los Angeles
For the celebrity’s fans, it is no surprise that she’s made the decision to cut ties with California. Last fall, on Instagram, she announced her decision to close her tattoo parlor, High Voltage, and to move out of the state.
She purchased a historic property in Indiana in 2020, but vowed on her Instagram account at the time, “Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA.”
Since then, she has clearly had a change of heart.
In October, she posted on social media, “Goodbye, California!” She added, “We plan on selling our beautiful home here, and I will most likely open a private studio in Indiana once we are done with the house remodel there.”
Around the time she picked up the Indiana pad, Von D also placed her Spanish-style home in the Hollywood Hills on the market for $3.4 million. The updated 1920s hacienda eventually sold for $2.5 million.
Whatever the expressive decorator decides to do next, we hope she’ll continue to document her home projects online.
Von D is best known for her TLC reality series, “LA Ink,” which followed her work at her tattoo shop, High Voltage Tattoo in Hollywood. She also launched a vegan beauty brand, Kat Von D Beauty, which she sold in 2020.
