Over the summer, Balthazar Getty unloaded his home in the Nichols Canyon area for $ 8.4 million, a huge number for the neighborhood. The heir to Getty Oil who became a retired Hollywood actor (“Lord of the Flies”, “Lost Highway”, “Alias”, “Brothers & Sisters”, “Charmed”) and his fashion designer Rosetta Millington Getty had tried the store sold for years, initially for up to $ 10.5 million.
As it turns out, the buyer is famous too – he’s Jay Shetty, the English former Hindu monk who has become a major influencer and life coach in recent years, with a hugely successful podcast (“On Purpose”), the tens of millions has been downloaded by times. Featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, he has a YouTube channel with more than four million subscribers and nearly 200 million lifetime views, and he is married to Radhi Devlukia, an English cook and well-known influencer.
Shetty and Devlukia previously lived in a rented house in the hills above Beachwood Canyon in Los Angeles, where they often entertained high profile guests and shot various videos for their social media channels. This modern property spans more than 6,200 square feet of living space and offers direct views of Lake Hollywood.
The Shetty Getty property stretched over three quarters of a hectare and originally housed a modern 1950s house that was demolished and completely remodeled in 2014 into a completely new building with a main residence and separate guest house. The modern villa offers panoramic views of the city and the mountains through glass walls. Between the two buildings there is around 6,600 square meters of living space with eight bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms. The property itself is well out of sight behind a long gated driveway on its own private hill.
The property was jointly listed with Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland and Branden Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates; Jonah Wilson from Hilton & Hyland represented the buyers.
