James Charles made a lifelong dream of his come true in 2020: He bought and moved into his first house. After years of renting, the YouTube star set his sights on a home he could call his own and, while he revealed that it took a long time for everything to come together, he couldn't be happier. After seeing these photos of James Charles' first house, you'll know why he's on top of the world.
Charles announced his new title of homeowner in a June Instagram post alongside a photo of himself standing in the back of a moving truck. "I’ve been keeping this secret from you guys for so long!" he wrote. "After renting for the past few years, I officially bought my first home almost a year ago and have been renovating it ever since! it’s been such a huge journey but today is moving day and I can’t WAIT to show you guys the new sister headquarters soon this wouldn’t be possible without you!!"
After renovations were complete, Charles opened the doors to his home to show his fans in an Aug. 26 YouTube video tour. "Buying a home has been my #1 biggest goal since starting social media and I cannot believe that this is a reality, all thanks to you guys," he gushed in the video.
Charles' new home is the epitome of classy and clean. The first room he showed off was his formal living room, and it's picture perfect. Complete with a lovely piano, Charles said it's where he and his friends gather for impromptu jam sessions.
Charles admitted to not yet using his formal dining room — except to store packages — but it's still a gorgeous space if and when he decides to host a dinner. One of the coolest parts of the room is the photo hanging on the wall, which Charles says he took during a trip to South Africa when he was a senior in high school.
Charles proved that wine cellars aren't just for vino drinkers. Since he doesn't drink wine, Charles filled his space with unique Coca Cola bottles.
Charles' office is immaculate, and he even has a standing tripod set up so he can film videos there.
There's nothing like a kitchen of your own — and Charles' is large.
Charles noted that he doesn't cook much, but he definitely snacks, which is why an oversized pantry was a must in his new home.
If you thought Charles' formal living room was nice, his regular living room looks just as cozy.
Charles even has his own personal fitting room with his designer clothes hanging for all to see.
Charles' master bedroom is modern, clean, and classy with a sprawling master bath included.
Off Charles' bedroom, double doors open to a luxurious patio which is perfect for hosting.
It might have taken Charles some time to buy his house, remodel, and move in, but from the looks of it, the home was worth the wait and all the effort.
