‘Blippi’ Creator Stevin John Lists L.A. Home for $3.6 Million

His first YouTube appearance was an early 2014 video of Blippi, a fun yet educational children’s show he came up with to entertain his young nephew. But brand-building entrepreneur Stevin John has certainly come a long way since then. Thanks to a loyal following of children and adults alike (he has over 35 billion YouTube views to date), the program is now available on all the major streaming platforms and has related merchandise, a touring musical, and spinoff series like Blippi’s Treehouse. The creator and original host even managed to sell his brand in a lucrative $120 million licensing deal about four years ago.

His burgeoning success also enabled him to purchase a $2.8 million home in Los Angeles that just popped up for sale, asking a speck under $3.6 million. And though that list price is around $800,000 more than John paid for the modern farmhouse-style digs back in spring 2020, the 36-year-old Washington State native has spent much of the past four years fully customizing the place from top to bottom. The listing is held by Michael Bergin of Compass.

A Blippi Sink or Float video filmed in the backyard racked up 82 million views on YouTube.

The property is also set in prime Toluca Lake, a celeb-studded enclave occupied by the likes of Macaulay Culkin, Melissa McCarthy, and Steve Carell. Tucked away behind walls and gates and protected by a security system, the two-tone and metal-roof structure was built in 2019 and features five en-suite bedrooms and seven baths in nearly 3,800 square feet of open-plan living space boasting white oak hardwood floors, high wood-beam ceilings, shiplap details, sliding glass doors, and Control4 technology throughout.

The two-story dwelling is fronted by a porch and offers an attached two-car garage. Once inside, highlights include a foyer that flows to a window-lined living and dining area warmed by a decorative fireplace. A wine fridge-equipped bar area can be found on the way to the gourmet kitchen, which is outfitted with two sinks, quartz countertops, an eat-in island, top-tier Thermador appliances, and a butler’s pantry. A family room off the kitchen flaunts built-in cabinetry and shelving, plus a wall of sliding glass doors spilling out to the backyard.

Elsewhere is a dual-desk office nook and a laundry room, as well as a spacious primary suite that rests beneath a vaulted pitched ceiling and comes complete with a fireplace, an expansive balcony, a walk-in closet, and a luxe bath spotlighted by a roomy oval soaking tub and a glass-encased shower. Outdoors, the private grounds span less than a quarter-acre and host a pool and spa flanked by an open-air cabana equipped with a handy exterior shower, a barbecue and bar setup, and a partially covered patio ideal for al fresco lounging.

In August 2021, John became engaged to his longtime girlfriend Alyssa Ingham. The couple, who share a son, reportedly maintain a primary residence in the Pacific Northwest.
