Supermodel slash agent Ryan Burns, along with his Brazilian wife Aline Nakashima, are saying “chau” to the Nakahouse.

The minimalist-modern remodeled estate known as Nakahouse at 3140 Hollyridge Drive in the Hollywood Hills sold at $2.08 million, The Real Deal has learned. This marks the first time the home has traded hands since the renovations.

The buyer, an attorney, is in closing to acquire the 1,900-square-foot hillside home.

Culver City-based XTEN Architecture remodeled the original, Midcentury-style 1960s home in 2011 — maintaining its original foundations — to create an estate with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling glass panels, multiple terraces and resin floors. Views of the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory span the white-and-black property.

Model couple Ryan Burns and Aline Nakashima previously owned the home. An entity attached to Nakashima paid $1.35 million for in May 2007, property records show.

Michael Higer of Westside Estate Agency had the listing. Benjamin Kruger of Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer.

Nakahouse has won eight awards since its renovation, including the AIA Design award in 2011 and American Architecture Prize in 2016. The firm also designed the award-winning Mirrorhouse in Beverly Hills.

Burns, who also works at Westside Estate Agency when he’s not grazing the runway, has modeled for H&M, Hugo Boss and Massimo Dutti. Nakashima has appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition twice.
