Mario Lopez Pays $9.4M for New Build Outside L.A.

Published: August 4, 2022 | By: American Luxury Staff

Mario Lopez is the newest resident of affluent Los Angeles-area city La Cañada Flintridge. Lopez, a multiple Young Artist Award and Teen Choice Award nominee and winner who also happens to be a multi-hyphenate, exchanged $9.365 million for a six-bedroom, eight-bath single-level just east of the San Rafael Hills, according to Dirt.

The 9,282 sq. ft. house is a Spanish-inflected build that listing information indicates was completed this year. The property last sold in late 2015, when it fetched less than $3 million. The structure that now occupies the 1.21-acre lot features a red tile roof and, from the street side, appears to be a ranch. In back it breaks into two full floors, with a nearly full-width balcony overlooking the backyard.

On the home’s ground level: an entertainment/recreation room with a billiards table, and a full-sized bar, pool and pool house, the last of which includes a covered open space as well as an interior auxiliary kitchen. The primary outdoor living area, however, may well be the meandering upper-level, tile-floored suite of spaces that includes covered and uncovered, and indoor and indoor/outdoor areas.

The interior design of the house generally conforms broadly, and strictly, to contemporary expectations. Details include the living room’s exposed ceiling beams, which are painted black — or a glossy shade close to it — and white oak floors, figured stone, and walls of fold-away glass panels. The kitchen cabinetry has been finished the color of dark honey, which acts as a very effective element between the floors and ceiling beams, simultaneously bringing a tastefully subtle cohesion to the room.

The home’s private accommodations are suites, including a master that’s executed very well indeed: given a fine sense of scale by way of length and ceiling design, its fireplace balances out the scale with intimacy.

Lopez currently hosts Access Hollywood.
