YouTuber Cody Ko buys vacation home in Malibu – DIRT
Although it’s been barely a year since he paid $ 3.8 million for his new primary residence, an elegantly refurbished resort in the main district of Venice (LA), Cody Ko is again feeling the need for real estate. . And now that he’s recently engaged to longtime girlfriend Kelsey Kreppel – a full-fledged preschool teacher and influencer – what better reason to splurge? Records show the veteran YouTuber, 31, paid an additional $ 3.7 million for a posh vacation home in Malibu.
Situated well out of the way of downtown Malibu in the city’s less populated far west near Ventura County, the Kreppel-Ko Beach Hut is in a gated community on the ocean side of the Pacific Coast Highway. Built in the early 1970s, the enclave is known as a residential cluster development because the townhouses are located close to each other, although they do not share common walls. There are about two dozen houses, most of them by the sea.
As residents of their new gated community, Ko and Kreppel will contribute $ 741 per month in HOA dues. These fees entitle them to the various public amenities of the property, including two outdoor sports fields, shared gardens and direct access to sandy beaches.
As for the couple’s new home, there are few photos available. But according to the listing, the main house has two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and there is an independent guest house with another bedroom and a bathroom. There is also a deeded parking lot for four cars on site, a boon for guests and contractors. Located right at the top of the beach, the mini-resort has been recently refreshed in a contemporary and relaxed way, perfect for laid-back Malibu beach.
A native of Canada, Ko began his career as a software engineer before finding fame and fortune on the now defunct Vine application. He became a millionaire after switching to YouTube, and his lucrative “Tiny Meat Gang” podcast has amassed a number of prominent sponsors and sponsors on Spotify.
Ko is perhaps best known for his “That’s Cringe” video episodes with longtime friend Noel Miller, where the couple poke fun at popular memes and other content creators they deem “cranky.” These kinds of videos have made YouTubers some notorious enemies – among them other influencers Jake Paul and Lele Pons – but also legions of loyal fans. Ko has nearly six million subscribers and over 1.2 billion lifetime video views on its main channel alone.
