How much does Mr. Blanco want for this beachside bachelor pad? Well, he bought it in 2012 for $3.85 million and now he’s asking $7.95 million. Not a bad way to make and extra million a year, huh? While we scrape some change together, go check out the full listing by clicking this link.
Shaun White just upped his LA real estate game with brand new $6.4 million home in “Los Angeles’s heavily celebrified Outpost Estates,” according to a story in Variety.
The approximately 4,500-square-foot house, a boxy but still sleek and architecturally masculine interplay of poured concrete, horizontally applied wood siding, and dramatic expanses of glass, features five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, and a glass-doored side-facing two-car garage.
Oh, those Hollywood nights, in those Hollywood Hills. . . above all the lights. . . (how’s that for an ancient reference?) Have to say, we totally approve of Señor Blanco’s real estate choices. For interior photos and a look at the view, click the link.
Yes, now you too can live in Shaun White’s Encinitas, California beach house for the bargain rate of $12,500 a month, according to story in the LA Times.
The 3,500 square feet of polished interiors features dark wood floors, wrought iron chandeliers and bi-folding doors that give way to unobstructed ocean views. Smart home features, wireless speakers and a modernized kitchen with marble countertops and large center island are among the updates. . . The master suite sports a free-standing soaking tub and a glass-enclosed rain shower for four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Just think, the only thing standing between you and your summer of a rock star is $36,000.
Looks like Shaun White has actually “joined the Mammoth Resorts’ ownership team” by plunking down a pretty large pile of cash (reportedly seven figures), even though making money by running ski lifts technically ended somewhere in the 90s. That said, he certainly seems stoked on his latest brand affiliation.
“It’s amazing that I’m now an owner of the mountain where I grew up riding,” said White. “As an owner I’ll be able to make changes and shape the future of the mountain and how people enjoy it–whether they’re beginners or professionals.”
Mr. White’s influence on Mammoth’s Big Bear Resorts will certainly help (White House Slopeside Condominiums, Summer Action Sports Complex, and dryslope maybe), and hey, if it sells a few more Air & Style tickets in the process, even better.
Shaun White has a new $3.85 million beach house in Encinitas, California according to a story on TMZ.com. And the view doesn’t look so shabby.
. . . despite the $4.25 mil price tag, the boarding master managed to knock off $400k in negotiations … and bought it for a cool $3.85 mil. . . The 3-bedroom, 3-bath house is siiiiick too … it literally sits right on the coastline, and has a private staircase leading down to the beach.
Looks like the perfect little place to hideout and escape winter. Follow the jump for some video from right out front at Shaun’s.
Beginning December 26, 2011 you won’t have to be a hot naked blonde to sleep with Shaun White. Now, thanks to his new collection of bedding, lamps, curtains, storage bins, and piggy banks available at Target people around the country will be able to bed down with the flying tomato no matter what they look like.
“It’s been a fun process creating a home product line with Target,” said Shaun. “We got our first crack at interior design when my brother Jesse and I worked on the Living Room for Target House at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. So, we jumped at the chance to give home design a shot and came up with stuff that we would’ve loved to have when we were growing up.”
Shaun spoke to the New York Times today about his choice in homes, interior design influences, why he’s doing it, and what’s next. Oddly, there was no mention of the rumored Shaun Wipes in this new new product home delivery. Guess Target is still keeping that under wraps. Follow the jump for the official word.

For the past 10 years news producer Tammy Haddad has thrown a brunch party at her home the morning before the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, DC.
The brunch features one of the most exclusive guest lists on the celebrity party circuit. For today’s event (April 30, 2011), aside from inviting Sarah Palin, Scarlett Johansson, and Rupert and Wendi Murdoch, Haddad invited Shaun White, according to a story in the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Georgetown brunch was sponsored by Tammy Haddad and Ted Greenberg; Kevin Sheekey, Hilary Rosen, Mark Ein, Alex Castellanos, Anita Dunn, Bill Knapp, Jim Courtovich, David Adler, Steve McMahon and Franco Nuschese. . . Two charities were highlighted : CURE Epilepsy, founded by Susan Axelrod, whose husband, David, is a key Obama advisor and White Ribbon Alliance, overseen by Wendi Murdoch, married to media mogul Rupert.
We’re guessing this is one of those parties that CAA requires Shaun to attend. After looking at Shaun’s posh garb there really is no other explanation.
We just can’t get enough of Shaun White around here and that’s about to change because Ubisoft, the makers of Shaun White Skateboarding, has just announced that Shaun’s game will soon support stereoscopic displays on 3DTVs, according to a post on Gamasutra.
Both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the title will use Sensio 3D technology, which Ubisoft last used in last year’s release of Avatar: The Game. . . “The gaming experience is very sensitive to image quality, and we know from past collaboration with Sensio that the company’s Sensio 3D format delivers the highest-quality images,” said Shaun White Skateboarding Executive Producer Patrick Naud.
It will be great to see that rich, thick, forest of red hair flowing right out of the TV as Shaun shreds past. Wonder if Shaun will do some signature Oakley 3-D glasses to go along with it?
The palatial mansion that Target rented as Shaun White’s homebase for the X Games 13 at Buttermilk is on its way to foreclosure according to a story in the Aspen Daily News.
A notice of election and demand — a document that starts a foreclosure proceeding in Colorado — was filed on the property Dec. 22. The 14,000-square-foot palace that Target Corp. rented out for its extreme athletes is set to be auctioned off on the steps of the Pitkin County Courthouse on April 29 unless the $4.6 million note securing the property is satisfied.
The “Target House” was a spec house that was reportedly finished last fall and “was listed for $26 million but was recently marked down to $19.5 million,” the paper said. Ah, the X Games glamor fades so quickly, doesn’t it?
Tony Hawk and Per Welinder, business partners for the past 15 years, reached a definitive agreement whereby Tony Hawk has acquired all interest in the Birdhouse Skateboards brand from Blitz Distribution, Inc. . . . By purchasing the brand, Tony Hawk will initiate integrating Birdhouse into his overall activities and his business, Tony Hawk, Inc. Full ownership will also give Tony increased oversight and involvement to his biggest priority, the Birdhouse team riders.
Hard to believe this hadn’t happened sooner (especially considering the mainstream marketing power of Tony and Shaun White). No one does better with Tony’s brand than Tony. And maybe those new THPS controllers will be Birdhouse decks.
