|While settling down and starting a family may still be an ambition of Bravo TV’s “Flipping Out” designer Jeff Lewis, it looks like he will not be doing it at the Los Feliz mansion he has called home for more than a year.
The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home located at 1946 N Gramercy Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90068 is now on the market for $3.195 million. Built and designed in 1937 by legendary architect Wallace Neff, the previously bare-boned beauty has been transformed into a 3,730-square-foot masterpiece, while still keeping its Hollywood golden age roots in mind. Neff’s designs remain popular among L.A.’s elite, including the recently listed homes of Bob Newhart and former Maroon 5 drummer Ryan Dusick.
According to property records, Lewis purchased the gated pad twice. He first scored the property for $1.265 million in 2004 and fell in love, saying he “had an instant connection” with it in an interview with People magazine. The decor mastermind implemented renovations including a galley-style kitchen before an offer came along that he could not refuse, selling the house for $2.795 million in 2006.
Lewis regretted giving up the gem so soon, however, telling People “the universe clearly brought us together” when it came back on the market in 2011 due to a foreclosure. Lewis quickly snagged the crib for $1.625 million with the intention of fixing up a few things.
Unsurprisingly, a few minor adjustments quickly turned into yet another extensive renovation. Featured on season six of “Flipping Out,” the home became Lewis’ pet project spanning a 12-month period.
Throughout the now-finished interior, black-and-white patterns make a subtle pop against neutral colors — from hand-cut-and-laid marble flooring to tastefully implemented wallpaper. With his partner of four years, Gage Edward, Lewis also installed a circular formal dining room, wet bar, solid wood-paneled walls and a glossy ebony finish on the floors.
