YouTube star, David Dobrik shows his $2.5 Million home in Los Angeles.
David Dobrik, 22, started using Vine in 2013. The app allowed users to post 6-second videos and that quickly rose him to internet fame. David was born in Slovakia and raised in Chicago. David the Vlog Squad leader is also the possessor of a $2.5 million mansion.
He opened its doors for Architectural Digest, which is a YouTube channel with 1.7 million subscribers. The YouTube star David Dobrik bought this home in 2017. His popular Vlog showcases the beauty of this property.
After searching for seven or eight months for a home with a view and a backyard he said, “I was like, ‘Oh, this is the one.’ I got really lucky to get the best of both worlds.” The “surreal” vistas of the mountains and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, an area theme park made the house more attractive. The fact that it was a “high-risk property,” in danger of sliding off the hill, didn’t deter him. “I’m living on the edge, no pun intended.”
“It’s not too big, it’s not too small, it’s not too modern, it’s not too old,” Dobrik said. “It’s just like the perfect in between, I think.”
The YouTube star had the means to hire an applauded interior designer, but when it came to furnishing his first home, a 2,700-square-foot four-bedroom in Studio City, he looked to his friend, Reginald Castro, and his assistant, Natalie Mariduena. “I called two of my friends from my hometown who are, like, really artsy and have a good eye for things, and I told them to just interior decorate it and make it look cool,” says Dobrik, adding that “cool” was his only request because he didn’t know how to describe furniture styling.
In addition to the house tour, Dobrik also shows off his car collection, including a new Ferrari and his favorite Tesla SUV
Dobrik’s house is also his workplace, and the most-used place is his living room. “I am in my living room a lot, and looking out—whether it’s day or night—is like being in a movie,” says the star, who has more than 12.5 million YouTube subscribers. “I freak out about it literally every day.” “It feels like a summer home.”
The open-plan living space is home to Dobrik’s favorite piece of furniture: a Restoration Hardware Cloud sectional. “It’s my favorite piece of furniture I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” he says. Castro and Mariduena’s stylings over the course of a few weeks also included DIY’ing a graphic black wall in his master bedroom and purchasing pool and ping-pong tables. “I learned the term ‘entertainer’s household,’” says Dobrik of wanting people of any age to feel comfortable and have fun. “I wanted the vibe to be like the basement on That ’70s Show where people walk in, grab something from the fridge, and chill out on the couch, even when I’m not home.”
Though he claims to have “no artistic outlook,” the art in Dobrik’s home does reflect his personal taste. There are neons, “because it looks so cool and modern,” and a pair of canvases by Shelby and Sandy, an L.A. brother duo who made two pieces for the house. “I’m not much of an art guy but I really do love Shelby and Sandy’s work—they look like they’re made on a computer but they’re hand-painted.”
Cool aside, Dobrik’s truest desire was comfort. “I really like that it’s not too big, it’s not too small. It’s not too modern and it’s not old. It’s just right, like a nice, big, humble home,” he muses. One that reflects his real-life and YouTube persona perfectly. “I’m pretty calm, but I also like to have fun, and I think that’s what the house is. I can relax here, but I can also have a really good time here,” he says. “And that’s a pretty good representation of my videos and me.”
