After years of renovating their dream house, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West decided to sell their Bel-Air mansion. Kanye became a pseudo interior designer when the couple bought the home in 2013 for $9 million and transforming it into a Yeezy-approved property.
However, four years later, the house has been bought for $17.8 million by Ukrainian philanthropist Marina Acton, according to the Wall Street Journal, which is a pretty profit. The 9,000 square foot estate, which was remodeled with a minimal and modern,” aesthetic also featured a cabana and views of the nearby canyon. Watch the video below to look at the mega-mansion!
The years-long renovation was featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians as Kim, and kids North, 4, and Saint, 23 months, stayed at mom Kris Jenner’s house while work was being done. However, while they did move in for a bit last year, Kimye decided to buy another house closer to the Kardashian family in Hidden Hills. “After you have a baby, you realize that you need so many other things and a different kind of space. So being in the city is a different life,” Kim told People. “We wanted to be away and have more privacy.”
Kim also told her BFF Jonathan Cheban in an episode of KUWTK that Kanye wanted the house to be “perfect” — which delayed their move-in date. Previously, Life & Style reported that Kanye had big plans for the estate, including building a bowling alley, movie theater, and a top-notch recording studio in the space. It was also revealed they were spending over $6 million on the changes.
“Kanye is obsessed with every single aspect of this house,” an insider shared. “He says it’s like a work of art and that there’s no detail too small for him to be involved in.” And while they are now comfortable in their new house, that does not Kanye is happy with the look of the place. When it comes to their $22 million Hidden Hills home, Kanye has ditched the pools in favor of a pond and has redone the master bedroom five times (so far).
“It’s frustrating for Kim,” the source added. “He’s impossible to please and thinks nothing of changing direction midway and starting over.”
