    Flex Seal pitchman Phil Swift lists his Sherman Oaks home for $5 million
    • October 14, 2023

    A Sherman Oaks hillside home owned by Phil Swift, the dynamo behind Flex Seal infomercials, is on the market for $4.995 million.

    The 5,107-square-foot contemporary home has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a detached recording studio with an isolated soundproof control room capable of accommodating a four-piece band.

    Designed and built by Hollywood-based architect Cyril Chern as his private residence in 1982, it boasts glass walls and 180-degree San Fernando Valley views from all three levels.

    An elevator provides easy access.

    The main living area holds a dining room with a built-in bar that doubles as a billiard room. A stone fireplace anchors the family room, which opens to the living and dining room sky decks with a fireplace.

    For everyday meals, there’s the breakfast room. It connects to the gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and quartz counters.

    The upper-level primary retreat has a spacious bedroom, a sitting area with a stone fireplace, a luxurious bathroom, a walk-in closet and an office with built-ins. There’s another office with a remodeled bathroom just outside the primary suite that the listing suggests can double as a nursery.

    Each guest suite features a remodeled bathroom with a flow-through slider to a private lounge.

    The grounds hold a limestone deck, an infinity-edge pool and spa and a covered outdoor dining room with a barbecue center and full kitchen. There are multiple seating areas, fire features and a grotto with a waterfall.

    Alan Taylor of Compass is the listing agent.

    Swift is the pitchman and CEO of Flex Seal products. He stars in the brand’s infomercials to happily demonstrate the bonding capabilities through over-the-top hypotheticals, from motoring a patched-up skiff boat through shark-infested waters to staging a massive flood to show how Flex Seal keeps water out, even when partially submerged.

    Flex Seal’s collection of commercials, behind-the-scenes footage, how-to videos and more are available to stream on the company’s YouTube channel.

    County documents show that in April 2016, Swift purchased the property for $1.84 million. He co-owns it with his son, Sidney Swift, a Grammy-nominated record producer who has worked with artists such as Big Sean, Beyonce and Jason Derulo.

    Sidney Swift is also an entrepreneur in his own right as the founder and CEO of the entertainment technology company Defient.
