Not numerous homes glimpse like Yvette Mimieux’s. Not in Southern California. Not wherever.

The vibrant Bel-Air compound — a bohemian bouquet of artwork and architecture — surfaced for sale at $49.5 million following Mimieux, star of the 1960 film “The Time Equipment,” died at 80 in January.

Information show it has a noteworthy new proprietor: Tinder co-founder Sean Rad, who paid $35 million for the fanciful estate.

Rad, an L.A. indigenous who founded the courting application in 2012, last made housing headlines when he acquired a Hollywood Hills mansion from real estate powerhouse Kurt Rappaport in 2018 for $24 million. His new location is even bigger, combining two homes and two heaps for a overall of 1.5 acres and around 15,000 square feet.

The compound is tucked on an “island” of types in Bel-Air, where the Bel-Air Region Club golf program wraps all-around a coveted assortment of luxury properties, developing a personal haven shielded from the town. It has been dubbed “Il Sogno” — Italian for “the desire.”

Both of those properties shirk modern design and style in favor of extravagant, around-the-leading Old Hollywood fashion.

The much larger of the two is a Tuscan-style villa with hand-painted ceilings, skylights, antique plaster partitions, stone-carved fireplaces and crystal chandeliers. Highlights consist of a sky-lit library, custom made brick wine cellar and a fairytale-model key suite below a dome.

The smaller residence is a Balinese-type cottage loaded with daring hues, leafy lounges and indoor-outdoor areas. A wraparound terrace overlooks the grounds, replete with gardens, statues, a cabana, lanai and multiple swimming swimming pools.

Linda May of Hilton & Hyland, Rappaport of Westside Estate Company and Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Realty held the listing. Mary Fitzgerald and Jason Oppenheim of the Oppenheim Group, who star in Netflix’s “Selling Sunset,” represented Rad.

Mimieux, an L.A. native, gained fame for her roles in “The Time Machine,” “Where the Boys Are” and “Light in the Piazza.” She owned the property for decades with her husband, true estate magnate Howard Ruby.
