Beauty YouTuber James Charles has finally revealed the incredible renovations to his new-build California house, in a tour of the 9,800 square foot property. But, how much did this mansion cost him?

Since his channel’s launch back in 2015, James has accumulated over 20 million subscribers, and has created his own apparel range and a palette with makeup giant Morphe as a result of his soaring success.

It’s no surprise then, that he has been able to rake in a high level of income from his various enterprises and buy a mansion in California for an eye-watering price, the first house he’s ever owned. He called his “biggest dream since I was a little kid.”

How much is James Charles’ new house worth?

According to Dirt, the lot was purchased two years ago, the previous property demolished, and a brand new farmhouse-style mansion built in its place that was purchased by James in November of 2019.

Charles paid a whopping $7 million for the home, having moved out of his luxury rental – which he was paying $15,000 a month for.

Finally, after months of renovations, James has uploaded the first part of his long-awaited house tour, and the results of the redecoration are as stunning as expected.

His living room features a grand piano, and a floor to ceiling black fireplace with a chandelier, which isn’t such a far walk from the wine cellar filled with bottles of Coca Cola.

The house is also full of framed photos that James himself took of a high school trip to South Africa, in a personal touch by interior design team Leclair Decor. James describes his work with the team as “one of the most rewarding partnerships [he has] ever had.”

Other rooms in the house include a fitting room, a huge walk-in closet, a double island kitchen and an incredible patio with a fireplace and outdoor furniture. Not to mention the teaser for the next section of the tour which includes a filming studio, a home cinema, and a swimming pool.

With the contents of the house so far, there’s no doubt that part two will be just as, if not more, incredible.

Twitch star Sykkuno officially reveals he’s moving to Las Vegas after dropping hints

Twitch superstar ‘Sykkuno’ has seen an explosive rise to internet stardom in the past few months, and after dropping a few hints that he’s making major life changes, has officially revealed he’s moving house.

Sykkuno’s is a unique and surprising case in online fame; while he’s been making content since 2011, the influencer saw a huge rise in YouTube subscribers during the last few months of 2020, skyrocketing him from 400k subscribers to over 2 million.

This impressive growth has been applauded by fans and fellow streamers alike — and it makes sense, as the creator managed to score a jaw-dropping 1.6 subscribers in just four months’ time.

It seems that his newfound success is also kicking off a major life change for the streamer, as hinted at during a broadcast in early January.

Data from VideoAmigo shows that Sykkuno’s subscriber count on YouTube started rapidly growing from August.

The star teased that he would be moving out of California, where he previously lived with major streaming group OfflineTV before exiting the collective to pursue his own personal projects in November 2020 — right when his subscriber count began to climb.

“I will say this, though, guys — I’m actually moving soon,” he said during a January 8 broadcast. “I don’t know if I should say where. But you guys will know, and it’ll happen within a month, probably. I will say this, guys… there’s a decent chance I won’t be in California anymore.”

It seems that Sykkuno’s hint was a bit more on-the-nose than fans expected, although he isn’t moving too far away; on January 15, the streamer revealed that he is moving to Las Vegas, home to several other major content creators.

However, it looks like Sykkuno’s streams will be on the back burner until he’s all settled in — but it doesn’t seem that his fanbase is too worried about that particular drawback.

“Moving to Las Vegas!” he tweeted. “I’ll be back on streams soon!”

Sykkuno’s post has been met with hilarious reactions from a slew of other top streamers, with the likes of Mizkif replying with a video of himself merely saying, “Bye.”

This move to Vegas marks another in a major series of life changes for one of the net’s biggest stars as he continues on his high rise to fame.
