Professional skateboarder, entrepreneur and television personality Rob Dyrdek has made quick work of selling his home in Hollywood Hills West.

The single-story contemporary came to market in late April for $3.495 million and closed in about a month for $3.575 million. That’s $80,000 more than the asking price and, perhaps even better, $1.075 million more than what Dyrdek paid for the property above Laurel Canyon four years ago.

The 3,733-square-foot home, built in 1977 and since remodeled, was designed for indoor-outdoor living and features doors that open from nearly every room to a backyard swimming pool and patio area. Rows of windows and glass doors bring canyon and city views inside.


Interiors done up in Brazilian walnut and flannel limestone floors include a great room with a stacked-stone fireplace, a dining area, a den/office and a chef’s kitchen. Modern fixtures and textured Ann Sacks and Walker Zanger tiles keep the eye moving from one area to another.

Four bedrooms and three bathrooms include a master suite with a custom walk-in closet, a steam shower and side-by-side soaking tubs. Sliding glass doors off the master bath open to a raised deck with a hot tub.

A flagstone patio, a sun deck and a swimming pool fill the grounds. There’s also a fire pit and a long bar designed to take in the views.

Cindy Ambuehl of the Agency was the listing agent. Susan Andrews of John Aaroe Group represented the buyer.

Dyrdek, 41, is known for the MTV reality series “Rob & Big” and “Fantasy Factory.” He has hosted the comedy show “Ridiculousness” since 2011.
