Before buying a much larger mansion in Woodland Hills that is currently under threat of foreclosure, YouTube’s famously controversial Ace family – Austin McBroom and his wife Catherine Paiz and their three young children – lived here in this much smaller but still multimillion dollar family House. McBroom and Paiz rented the property from 2017 to 2018; While it is not known exactly how much they paid, the site was last offered at a rental price of $ 18,000 per month.
Despite the high price tag, things weren’t always good during the Ace Family’s stay. First came intruders and “ghost sightings,” both of which were widely used for clickbait on the family’s YouTube channel. In the summer of 2018, the allegedly haunted house was broken into. While police reports confirm that an incident happened inside the home, the line between reality and fake for cameras at the Ace family is notoriously thin, and online debates raged over whether the break-in actually took place. (The controversy was only fueled when McBroom and Paiz posed for photos with their child in front of the house’s broken glass door, which had been broken into by burglars only hours earlier.)
In any case, McBroom and Paiz have long since vacated the premises, their landlord has now sold the villa for $ 3.1 million. The buyer is Henry Russell Walter – the music producer better known as Cirkut – who frequently works with Kanye West, Rihanna, Katy Perry and The Weeknd. Presumably, Cirkut will eventually share the property with his girlfriend Ava Max, a popular singer known for the hit singles “Sweet but Psycho” and “Kings & Queens”.
Built in the early 2000s and in the style of many generally Mediterranean McMansions of the time, the 6,200-square-foot structure offers five en-suite bedrooms and voluminous public spaces in its pale yellow walls and under its red tile roof. There are tile and wood floors throughout, plus wrought iron details, and a kitchen with granite countertops, a pantry, and stainless steel appliances.
The property is completely fenced and is monitored by a camera for security reasons. It also features an attached three car garage and truck stop a kids’ play set. There is also an infinity pool that overlooks the shallow basin of the San Fernando Valley as the house is perched on a prominent ridge at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.
Originally from Canada, Cirkut has written and produced hit songs with many prominent artists over the course of his decades of career, including “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus, “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming” by The Weeknd, and songs on Kanye West’s Donda- Album. The 35-year-old also owns two other multimillion-dollar homes in Los Angeles, including a modern $ 4.5 million mansion in Studio City and a $ 4.2 million home in the Hollywood Hills, that of “90210” actress Jennie Garth and the latter of “Legally Blonde” actress Ali Larter.
