Inside Bailey Sarian’s Stylish Los Angeles Home – DIRT


You say crime doesn’t pay, but tell Bailey Sarian that. Sarian, a former Sephora employee and native of Southern California of Armenian descent, started posting YouTube makeup tutorials about a decade ago, but her channel was largely overlooked until 2019. This year, she performed with her Murder, Mystery & Makeup video series, in which she talks about notorious murders or serial killers while doing makeup on her face. Her most popular video, an analysis by Jeffrey Dahmer, has been viewed more than 23 million times.

Sarian truly became world famous in mid-2020, just after the Covid-19 pandemic confined people to their homes and sent YouTube viewership skyrocketing. Today, the 33-year-old has 6.5 million subscribers and 800 million lifetime views, most of which have been accumulated in the last two years alone. Though Sarian’s net worth isn’t public, it’s widely believed that she’s made tens of millions — and that income is substantial enough to comfortably afford her a $4.1 million home in the Hollywood Hills.

Sarian’s 1930’s Tudor-style residence was designed by famed architect Wallace Neff and sits on a lofty elevate offering unobstructed views of the LA skyline. Approximately 3,700 square feet of living space features three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a powder room, and the residence also features a detached two-car garage at street level, well below the house.

If this property looks vaguely familiar, that might be because the place has been featured multiple times on the Bravo reality TV show Flipping Out. Series star Jeff Lewis bought, renovated, and sold the home on two separate occasions — after offloading the home for $2.8 million in 2006 to a buyer who later lost it through foreclosure, Lewis repurchased it in a fire sale in 2011, paying only $1.6 million.

Lewis then poured an enormous amount of money into his second renovation of the premises, installing a hand-cut black-and-white marble floor in the oval dining room and a glittering wet bar near the modern chef’s kitchen, and adding a high-gloss ebony stain to the existing hardwood floors. He also added solid wood paneling to the stairs and hallways of a long corridor, giving things a classic touch of Old Hollywood glamour. In 2015, he resold the house for $2.9 million; In 2017 it changed hands again before going to Sarian.

One of the bedrooms in the house is on the ground floor, while the other two are tucked away upstairs. Located in its own upper level wing, the master suite is fully appointed with a fireplace, window seat, boutique size closet and marble bathroom with freestanding bath and steam shower. The heavily modernized house retains many original features, including stained glass windows and brick fireplaces.

Outside, the terraced courtyard covers more than a third of an acre and is fully landscaped; Wraparound formal gardens mingle with pathways and multiple patios, almost all furnished with city lights views. In addition to a backyard pool with a built-in spa, the grounds also feature lawns, a fire pit, and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen.
