YouTube Star Grace Helbig Buys Bungalow in Hipster Northeast L.A. (EXCLUSIVE)

Though Grace Helbig has yet to sell her first house (more on that in a minute), trusted celebrity real estate compadre Lucy Spillerguts snitched that the YouTube star, author, and podcaster has shelled out $915,000 for a renovated mid-century bungalow in the hipster-chic Northeast L.A. area of Los Angeles, known as NELA. Helbig, whose thrice-weekly vlogs get hundreds of thousands and sometimes millions of views, must have wanted the property something fierce because she paid a whole lot more than the just-shy-of-$800,000 asking price.

Matte-finished and wide-planked maple floors run throughout the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house that measures in at around 1,300 square feet. The open-plan living and dining room has huge picture windows that provide a glittery view, and, in the dining area, French doors lead to an al fresco dining deck partly shaded by a vine-draped trellis. The remodeled kitchen is open to the dining area over a multi-stool snack peninsula, and is finished with marble countertops on white-beadboard-accented cabinets, classic white-subway-tile backsplashes, and average-grade stainless steel appliances. A corridor with floor-to-ceiling shelves leads to two guest/family bedrooms that share a hall bath.

Then there’s the master suite that has 12-foot ceilings, a row of clerestory windows for ambient light, a walk-in closet, a separate office nook, and a renovated bathroom that opens to a private patio. The property includes a detached two-car carport and, unusual for a house in the hills, a flat expanse of lawn. The property was listed with Sara Reichling of Bryant/Reichling Real Estate for Sotheby’s International Realty.

Helbig, whose YourTube channel “It’s Grace” has more than three million subscribers, continues to own a small two-bedroom, one-bathroom 1930s cottage with a detached office space atop a two-car garage in Silver Lake that she bought in the fall of 2014 for $900,000 — well above its $800,000 asking price — and currently has on the market at not quite $990,000.

    Kind of cheesy that her real estate agent is slipping things to the media

    This seems invasive…

    I don’t even know her, and I’m not cool with the idea of external shots of her home being posted along with her neighborhood. What about her privacy and safety?
