Tinder co-founder parts ways with his $32 million mansion in Hollywood Hills Sean Rad, co-founder of Tinder, is saying goodbye to his expansive 10,600-square-foot residence in Los Angeles. The 37-year-old entrepreneur has enlisted Aaron Kirman from AKG/Christie’s International Real Estate to list the five-bedroom, nine-bathroom property for $32 million. Rad and his wife, Lizzie Grover Rad, a fashion designer, acquired the house in 2018 from renowned real estate mogul Kurt Rappaport for an estimated $26.5 million. Originally constructed in 1936, the house was previously owned by Mitzi Shoré, the founder of Comedy Store.

Working closely with designer Jane Hallworth, the Rads extensively renovated the gated property, located in the Hollywood Hills just above the Sunset Strip. The double-height living room is flooded with natural light through floor-to-ceiling picture windows, while the kitchen boasts marble accents, bronze cabinetry, and bifold doors that open onto a courtyard featuring a spacious outdoor dining area.

An eye-catching feature in the kitchen is the striking swirled stone island counter and wall, adding a touch of drama. Additionally, one of the most remarkable spaces in the house is the primary bathroom, which is adorned in Breccia Capraia marble. It boasts a soaking tub carved from a single block of stone and a marble chaise longue installed in the steam shower. Hallworth described the room as “over-the-top, but in the most tasteful way” during an interview with AD in 2021.

Historic house gifted by Henry VIII to Anne of Cleves hits the market for $2.9 million Fans of the Broadway musical Six are familiar with Anne of Cleves, one of Henry VIII’s fortuitous wives who emerged relatively unharmed (and affluent) after their brief six-month marriage was annulled. Now, the Tudor-style house with five bedrooms, bestowed upon his fourth wife by the king himself, is available for purchase at $2.9 million. Anne received Wings Place, a Grade I country house located in East Sussex, in 1540. However, it remains uncertain whether she ever resided there.

The property’s origins can be traced back to at least 1095 when it was recorded as part of Ditchling Garden Manor. Following the dissolution of English monasteries in 1537, Ditchling Garden and its priory were surrendered to King Henry. After Anne’s passing in 1557, it reverted to the Crown. By the 1570s, it returned to private ownership, and over the centuries, notable figures such as Thomas Cromwell, Prime Minister William Pitt, and Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington, have counted themselves among its owners. In the early 2000s, Wings Place was acquired by British television host Jamie Theakston, who grew up in Ditchling.
