Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been busy preparing for baby KIMYE by selling off their property and buying a new home together. Kim Kardashian’s home sold in February, and now its dad’s turn! Kanye’s home officially listed on February 28 for $3.3 million, and now – just a few weeks later – a sale is pending.
The 4,214 square foot bachelor pad is located above the Sunset Strip in the Hollywood Hills area. It has panoramic views of downtown L.A., stretching all the way to Santa Monica. For someone with a net worth of $90 million, the hillside compound is surprisingly refined, though still pretty fabulous. It has a modern architectural style and has been meticulously designed with the finest fixtures and finishes, from French Walnut hardwood floors to Minotti chandeliers.
The MLS listing only shows two photos, but Kanye briefly listed his home in March 2010 and made many more photos available then; you can check those out on Curbed.com. His throne room is not to be missed; the aquarium in the shower is out of this world! Kanye purchased the home in 2003 for $1.75 million, so if he gets his asking price of $3.3 million, he stands to make more than a million on the sale.
Kim made a pretty penny herself; her home was located in Beverly Hills and was rumored to be sold for $5 million, though sale records have not been made public yet. She purchased the estate in March 2010 for $3.4 million. The style of her home is VERY different from Kanye’s; it looks like it is straight out of Tuscany and features water fountains, French doors, custom sculpture and ironwork, while Kanye’s home has a more modern, minimalist look.
The money made from both home sales will likely go toward Kim and Kanye’s new home purchased together for $9 million in January. Located in the 24-hour gated community of Bel Air Crest, the sprawling 9,000 square foot mansion has five bedrooms and 6.5 baths…plenty of space for the baby, but not enough for the entire Kardashian clan!
It looks like Kim got her way when it came to choosing their new home; the Tuscan-style design is much more similar to her old home than Kanye’s modern mansion. But the inside is likely to change; Kim told ET, “We collectively redo everything together. We’re completely tearing it down, doing construction, the whole thing.” What do you think of their new home? Love it, hate it? Tell us in the comments!
