The Bachelor franchise creator Mike Fleiss has sold his vacation home in Hawaii for a whopping $11.4 million.
Fleiss sold his bluff-front estate on the North Shore of Kauai that was custom built for him this year, the Los Angeles Timesreported.
The compound was reportedly listed in March for $12.85 million and was purchased in about five weeks.
According to listing agent Neal Norman of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers -- who represented the buyer in the sale -- the North Shore market has "ramped up tremendously" in recent months and properties which are "beautifully designed and considered triple-A estates" tend to be "snapped up quickly."
Fleiss' Hawaiian estate sits on 7.3 acres of land and features a Balinese-inspired main house, a matching 500-square-foot guest house, and a separate garage. The home also boasts six bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, bamboo-lined ceilings, glass doors, hardwood floors, and modern furnishings, the LA Times reported.
The home also has hardwood decks crossing over a 100-foot saltwater swimming pool with a private footpath that leads down to the beach below -- not to mention views of the ocean all the way up to Kilauea Lighthouse.
The Bachelorette is set to premiere May 23 on ABC, Bachelor in Paradise will return August 2, and then the 21st season of The Bachelor will debut next year.
