Ari Gold has a new pad. Well, not Ari Gold per se, but the real-life version of him. Ari Emanuel, the famous Hollywood agent who served as the inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s character on HBO’s “Entourage”, recently bought a house in Mandeville Canyon.

Emanuel bought the single-story residence for $16.6 million, Variety reported. The very modern dwelling was designed by L.A. architect Marc Whipple in the late 1990s.

The 5,703-square-foot home includes four bedrooms and six bathrooms. The interior design includes varying ceiling heights and white oak floorboards. There are at least five fireplaces, and a media room. Outside, the property has multiple patios, including a dining terrace with a grilling station.

Previously, comedian Chelsea Handler had leased the property and British writer-producer Peter Griffiths owned it between 2011 and 2015.

Emanuel currently owns a 6,859-square-foot residence in Brentwood Park. [Variety]Cathaleen Chen
