NewsAll Your Swiping Just Bought Tinder's CEO an $8.5M Mansion

Normal.

Tinder CEO Sean Rad just bought a house that lives up to his last name.

The embattled founder of the go-to millennial dating app has reportedly traded his swanky bachelor penthouse for a single-family mansion that doesn't share its walls with anyone else. The $8,485,000 home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms spread over 5,085 square feet of interior space. There's also a pool and a Jacuzzi (which, duh, this is Beverly Hills), a family room with built-in bookcases, a wood-paneled bar, a well-appointed chef's kitchen, and a master bathroom that looks like it might have required emptying an entire quarry in Carrara.

The lot has a gravel court with enough space to park eight cars and is surrounded by hedges tall enough to keep out any prying eyes. (There are also lemon trees and a built-in grill in the bacykard.) And if Rad ever gets tired of all that luxurious privacy, West Hollywood's SoHo House is, quite literally, a five-minute walk away from the property.

The photos you see above are what the home looked like when it was occupied by its previous owner, Fox executive Paul Hanneman. But given the sleek, masculine, Tom Ford-boutique feeling Rad brought to his last home (below), we wouldn't be surprised to see the young CEO give the place a more modern loon before he moves in.
