Veteran producer and programming executive Jeff Olde and his husband, former Warner Bros. publicist Alan Uphold, have put their home near the Beverly Grove neighborhood of Los Angeles up for sale at $2.895 million.
Owned by the couple for nearly two decades, the 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival-style home has been updated and restored. Colorful tile risers and original Saltillo tile floors grace the two-story foyer, which has a sweeping staircase. Beamed ceilings top the living room, which is anchored by a grand fireplace. Off the living room, a small library/reading nook has built-in bookshelves that surround a stained glass window.
A formal dining room, an updated kitchen and a breakfast room are among other common areas. There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms including a master suite with a balcony and a walk-in closet.
Outside, the hedged and landscaped backyard has a small lawn, patios and a brightly tiled spa. There’s also a swimming pool and a cabana with a bath and kitchenette.
Olde previously served as senior vice president of production and programming at VH1 (2008-13), where he developed such shows as “Rock of Love,” “Flavor of Love” and “Breaking Bonaduce.” From 2013 to 2017, he supervised the programming of such reality series as “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” “The Soup” and “Fashion Police” as executive vice president of programming and development at E! Entertainment.
Uphold, a communications consultant and speechwriter, teaches public speaking at Mt. San San Antonio College in Walnut. A staunch supporter of LGBTQ equality, the longtime publicist previously served for five years on the Human Rights Campaign Board of Governors and also served on the Board of Directors of Equality California. He currently sits on the board of directors for the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles.
