Selling Sunset focuses mostly on the petty personal drama between several high-profile real estate agents in Los Angeles. But they have plenty on the line, career-wise, too. Since Season 1, for example, they've all been vying to secure the hefty commission for Selling Sunset's $40 million house.
The staff of the Oppenheim Group toured the property in the very first episode, and the home is pretty incredible. It boasts 20,000 square feet, five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a 15-car garage, four hot tubs, a 163-foot infinity pool, and the largest rooftop deck in the Hollywood Hills, plus a wine cellar, movie theater, and wellness spa complete with wet and dry saunas, hot and cold plunge pools, and a massage room. Whichever agent closes the deal gets a sweet $1,200,000 piece of the pie, but both Seasons 1 and 2 conclude with the Oppenheim brothers still eager to get it off the market.
According to The Los Angeles Times, though, the house did finally sell in December 2019. It closed at $35.5 million, which doesn't sound as good as $40 million, but is still one of the largest sums in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood's history. The Times reports that it's also the priciest sale since 2012, when Malaysian businessman Jho Low dropped $38.98 million for a mansion in LA's Bird Streets. However, after federal officials seized the property amid claims that Low bought the home with embezzled funds, it was put back on the market at a much lower $24.5 million.
It's unclear which agent ultimately sold the $40 million (er, $35.5 million) house, but we'll likely find out in Selling Sunset Season 3, should the show be renewed.
