Selling Sunset star Jason Oppenheim unveils ‘black and white gothic’ revamp of $5.1MIL mansion

Selling Sunset star Jason Oppenheim has unveiled what he calls his ‘black and white gothic’ revamp of his sensational $5.1 million mansion in Los Angeles.

The 44-year-old reality star, who along with his twin brother Brett owns the realty firm the Netflix show is about, bought the property last October.

Now he has completed its refurbishment, includes a 60-light chandelier to spruce up the living room and which he told People combined a ‘British’ style with a ‘Hollywood vibe.’

Having redone the living room in monochrome he got a custom 12 foot tall Buster + Punch chandelier and added an extra splash of pizazz to the proceedings.

‘It took them like two months, but it came out insane! We literally designed the whole thing together as a collaboration,’ he said of the chandelier which weighs hundreds of pounds.

‘It’s funny for me, lighting is usually the first thing I do,’ said Jason, whose massive light fixture is the biggest bespoke chandelier Buster + Punch has ever created.

‘I change all the lighting and you change the whole house. That was probably the biggest thing I did. I spent less than a million dollars on the remodel, which isn’t a ton for a 5,000 square-foot house,’ he noted.

Jason commissioned the chandelier because he felt the home ‘needed a statement piece in the middle of that living room. It was poorly staged, which is attractive to me when I’m buying a house.’

The dashing reality TV star elaborated: ‘I like when I go into a house that’s been sitting on the market, that’s overpriced, it’s not staged well, it’s not presented well, it doesn’t have good lighting, it doesn’t have good landscaping, the house is a little sad. I like that!’ 

He also shared some of the other attributes that draw him to a house, saying: ‘The scale of the house is what spoke to me. Twenty-foot ceilings. I love that type of scale, those metal windows, the view, and the yard.’

Jason also regarded the property as timeless saying: ‘The other thing about the style of that house, I like buying a house that’s not going to date. That style looked good 50 years ago, and it will look good in 50 years. That was really important to me, finding a house that was timeless in that respect.’

Looking back: For his own restaging of the home he had a particular idea of the style he was hoping to capture: 'I wanted to lean into that, almost a mix of British/Hollywood glamour'

Jason pointed out: ‘It’s black and white. It had huge scale and I just wanted to lean into that vintage ideal. I didn’t want to turn it into a contemporary home.’

The outdoor touches on the home include a swimming pool and attached hot tub with the surrounding floors done in an Art Deco style that perfect evoked the Hollywood touch Jason was after.
