Reality television addicts may recognise Singaporean Kane Lim from Netflix's newest series, "Bling Empire".

Inspired by popular movie "Crazy Rich Asian," the eight-episode series offers a glimpse into the extravagant lifestyles of the ultra-rich Asians in Los Angeles.

Besides being one of the stars of "Bling Empire", the Singaporean heir also identifies as a philanthropist, investor, and real estate developer.

On Jan. 27, Lim shared a video in the form of an Instagram post to advertise the sale of his property.

The video then cuts to local attractions in the vicinity such as the iconic Venice sign along Pacific Avenue, sunset at the popular Venice beach, the Abbot Kinney Boulevard road sign, known as the main shopping avenue named after the town's founder.

1531 Glenavon Ave

Referred to as 1531 Glenavon Ave, the multi-hyphenated reality star disclosed that he had "bought this land and it’s finally ready" for sale.

The property description in his Instagram post is exactly the same as the listing on American real estate websites.

Built in 2020, the lot size is measured to be 5,906 square feet (548.7 square metres) with a living space of 3,300 square feet (306.6 square metres).

A typical 4-room HDB flat is around 90 square metres, which means the living space exceeds the size of three 4-room HDB flats in Singapore.

Priced at US$1,091 (S$1,446.20) per square feet, the property is listed on multiple real estate websites with a price tag of US$3,599,000, which is about S$4.77 million.

At the time of writing, real estate website Trulia states that the property has been in the market for 51 days.

Venice

Located in the coastal neighbourhood of Venice, the property sits at the junction between Glenavon Avenue and Morningside Way.

GoodMigrations touts Venice as "part laid-back beach town and part trendy social scene" in Los Angeles.

BMWs, Teslas, and Range Rovers are apparently fashionable in this up-scale, gentrified neighbourhood.
