Kim And Kanye’s $20 Million Mansion Is Almost Complete, And It Looks Like It’ll Be Worth The Wait
Looking at these pictures, it’s safe to say that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are a couple with exquisite taste. Since purchasing a $20 million mansion in 2014, the pair have been hard at work making it meet their exacting standards. Now with extensive remodeling work almost complete, Kimye are finally ready to move into their dream home (as long as those divorce rumors aren’t true). But us mere mortals can take a sneaky peek around first…
After beginning their whirlwind romance in 2012, Kim and Kanye spent the first years of their relationship camped out in Kris Jenner’s Hidden Hills home. But baby North’s birth in 2013 gave them added impetus to move out, and they have since been looking for a permanent place to call home.
In 2014 Kardashian revealed the pair were finally ready to flee the nest. “It might be a few months, but I’m not sure,” she enthused to People magazine. “We just found an amazing place… I am so ready to be out of my mom’s house, you have no idea!”
The house in question is a sight for sore eyes. Spanning 3.5 acres of sun-kissed California land, it’s a palace fit for a king… and his queen. And with Yeezy himself regularly comparing himself to royalty, it’s no wonder that the celebrity couple were quick to snap it up.
In fact, the home has more in common with musical royalty than you’d imagine. After all, Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, originally purchased the grounds in 1993. But Presley sold it in 2010, and the plot’s new owner built a house from scratch. This was then placed on the market a few years later.
As it stands, the fantastic eight-bed property covers 16,000 square feet. Plus, it has heaps of outdoor space for entertainment and relaxation. And desides being set within a gated community in California’s Hidden Valley, the estate further offers Kardashian some home comforts. Indeed, it’s only a five minute drive from her mom’s home.
Though originally listed for $22 million in 2013, the Kardashian-Wests acquired the home for $2 million less than the asking price. In addition, the duo shelled out $3 million for an adjoining 2,800-square-foot property in 2015. All in all, the family have acquired a cornucopia of floor space for a comparatively small price.
Fortunately, then, the estate’s exterior contains enough extravagant features to keep guests occupied all throughout the scorching south west summers. For example, the garden’s centerpiece is an ornate pool and Jacuzzi adorned with fountain streams. There’s even a sizeable adjoining pool house to keep guests sheltered from sudden storms.
In addition, the outside area includes an extensive pavilion replete with yet more fountains and two barbecue fittings. If that wasn’t enough, there are also twin spas and a second pool for swimmers to take separate dips. Meanwhile, not one but two meandering vineyards add a little extra class to proceedings.
Inside, the fittings are just as elegant as one would expect from showbiz’s most famous couple. After all, the home is built in the style of a French country house, and the pristine white decor is beyond tasteful. Certainly, the look and feel of its alabaster hallways puts one in mind of a Provence retreat.
Within its spacious interior, the house offers more than enough living space for Kim, Kanye, North and Saint. In terms of accommodation, the estate offers eight bedrooms, two of which feature en suite bathrooms with saunas. Furthermore, eight – yes eight – additional bathrooms are at the disposal of guests.
Throughout the building’s many living areas lay further traces of its owners’ chic taste. For instance, above the dining room’s ten-seat table hangs a crystal chandelier that radiates a feeling of grace and civility toward its diners. Beyond this, a total of eight fireplaces dotted around the building ensure its inhabitants stay cozy in the winter months.
As you’d expect from a $20 million home, the estate offers amenities beyond the reach of the average abode. Besides the outdoor fixtures and elegant decor, the house includes a bar, a home theater and an expansive library. And – as befitting a fashionable star such as Kardashian – there’s also a sprawling walk-in closet in the master bedroom.
Owing to its fabulous fixtures and roomy interiors, this Hidden Valley estate would be enough to sate any celeb’s desires. However, the Kardashian-Wests still wanted more from this fantastic mansion. And, since its 2013 purchase, the two have been working tirelessly toward transforming it into the perfect home.
So, after two years of intensive remodeling, the house boasts some impressive new features benefiting such huge stars. For example, West has everything a rap star needs to stay ahead of the game. This apparently includes a state-of-the-art recording studio and a basketball court to keep fit for his live performances.
Known for her social media ubiquity and DASH boutique chain, Kardashian also has fittings suiting her style. Yes, the star’s had an entire spa fitted – including rooms for massages and facials – as well as a hair salon and gym. Talk about home comforts.
But that’s not to say that North and Saint have been left out of Kimye’s remodeling plans. Indeed, the two tykes now have a two-tier playroom in which to occupy their time. In addition, a fully-equipped jungle gym now sits in the backyard so that they can happily play underneath the sun.
While waiting for contractors to finish, the family have been staying in a Bel Air mansion. Once they’re ready to move into their new property, though, they reportedly plan on listing this 9,000-square-foot home with an asking price of $11 million. Though it may seem like a profit, the sum barely covers the reported $10 million invested in their Hidden Hills renovations.
Home improvements can often be hard to live through and – by all accounts – Kimye have had a tough time with their refurbishments. After all, the pair were originally due to move in last year, but work was delayed for various reasons. By some accounts, this included West constantly changing his ideas on key fittings.
Nevertheless, Kim and Kanye’s homestead woes won’t last much longer. With the renovations nearly at an end, the pair will be able to move into this showbiz palace sometime in the very near future. And – judging from the shots we’ve seen so far – we can tell it will have been worth the wait.
