Controversial YouTuber Shane Dawson and his fiancé Ryland Adams have splashed out $2.2 million on their ‘dream house’ in Colorado, where they hope to start a family.
Located in Parker, about 25 miles southeast of Denver, the bucolic property boasts three bedrooms, a billiard room, a barn, a zip line, and a massive backyard pond that reminds Dawson of the teen drama Dawson’s Creek.

Splashing out: The couple paid $2.2 million for their Colorado ‘dream house,’ which features a stone entryway
Perks: The stunning property has skylights and a number of windows that let in plenty of natural light
Say what? Dawson and Adams have their very own pond located on the nearly 5,000 square foot property
While the move may come as a surprise to some, Dawson, 33, and Adams, 30, have been candid about their desire to leave Los Angeles County in the videos shared on the latter’s YouTube channel.
‘I never thought I’d want to leave California. I grew up here. But whenever I go to Colorado, I’m so happy, and I just feel so much better inside,’ Dawson said in a recent clip.
The couple was visiting Adams’s family when he found the house on Zillow and called up his sister Morgan’s realtor, who showed them the property.
The home is less than 15 minutes away from his parents, and Morgan has already offered to babysit for them when they have kids.
Dawson and Adams both fell in love with the house, which the former noted costs a lot less than what he paid for the Calabasas pad. While touring the property, Dawson noted that would be the perfect place for them to get married.

Built in 1964, the inside of the midcentury home features off-white wood paneling, oak hardwood, a stone fireplace, and skylights that let in plenty of natural light.
All three bedrooms have wall-to-wall carpeting and ensuite baths, while the primate suite has dual sinks, granite countertops, a built-in soaking tub, and a dressing room. There is also a fourth bathroom on the lower level.
The bright kitchen is a mix of white cabinets and black and white patterned tile. At the center, there is a spacious island with marble countertops.

Dawson, who has an estimated net worth of $12 million, found fame on YouTube after launching his channel in 2018 at the age of 19.
He amassed more than 30 million subscribers, and his videos were streamed more than 45 million times per month, allowing him to make hundreds of thousands of dollars through advertising.
However, Dawson’s career has been marred by scandal, including backlash for previously posting content that showed him in blackface, making racial slurs, and sexualizing a then-11-year-old Willow Smith.
In June 2020, just days after he posted a video apologizing for his actions, YouTube indefinitely suspended monetization on all three of his channels.

While he hasn’t posted any new clips in over a year, he often makes cameos in his partner’s videos about their life.
Dawson appears to have found happiness in their new home, and they didn’t waste any time moving. According to county property records, the sale closed on August 13.
On Thursday, he took to Instagram to post photos taken at their Colorado abode, saying they have been there for about a week.
‘My first photo dump is a collection of some of my favorite moments from moving to Colorado last week,’ he wrote. ‘My dream life as a kid was to one day live on a farm surrounded by animals and to be married to my best friend.
‘This move has definitely gotten me closer to that.’
