Bachelor house on sale for $8.75 million

The house used for filming recent seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette is for sale at the newly discounted price of $8.75 million. It was listed for $12.995 million as recently as June, when The Los Angeles Times profiled it, shortly after The Bachelorette 4 finished production there.

It’s located on 2351 Kanan Road in Agoura Hills, Calif., and the two-story, six bedroom, nine bathroom, four garage, 8,000 square foot property is known as Villa De La Vina.

The Wall Street Journal reported that “[d]uring the years of occasional filming, Marshall Haraden, who built the six-bedroom rustic Italian-style house in 2005, has lived in it.” The price dropped by one-third because “[t]he California real-estate market has softened.”

Mark Miller of Barcode Properties, who’s listing the property, toured the house on Open House LA back when it cost $12.995 million.
