Property information now reveal the 42-year-old an identical twins, whose elephantine “Property Brothers” home-improvement empire encompasses a number of TV reveals, net sequence, and authentic music, have acquired their greatest undertaking thus far: a $9.5 million property within the Westside L.A. neighborhood of Brentwood.
Though it’s worlds other than what anybody would contemplate low-cost, the brand new Scott property was not-so-subtly marketed as a really A-list fixer-upper or teardown; the “trophy property” options a chic 1930s mansion that “may very well be renovated or changed,” per the itemizing.
Particularly, the property is comprised of two side-by-side tons in an unique Brentwood canyon that mixed, complete roughly one acre of flat land. The bigger parcel contains the elegant most important home, initially designed by acclaimed Previous Hollywood architect Gerard Colcord. The East Coast Colonial-style property presents a sprawling entrance garden, basic pink brick porch and jade inexperienced shutters that properly distinction with the house’s milky white siding.

Each tons characteristic rolling lawns shaded by breathtaking liquid amber and native sycamore timber, enhancing the bucolic, park-like environment.

However their new fixer-upper will current a wholly totally different kind of problem, one the place the stakes are significantly larger than any undertaking they’ve tackled thus far. Brentwood is likely one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, and the high-risk, high-reward earnings there are probably many thousands and thousands of . All of it is dependent upon how extensively (and expensively) they select to improve their new digs. One factor’s sure — all of the drama would make for excellent TV.
