Kim Kardashian and Kanye Quietly Selling Bel Air Mansion

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Now that they’ve completed the $21.25 million purchase of a freshly constructed French Country farmhouse mansion in the guard gated Hidden Hills community in L.A.’s far western suburbs Your Mama heard word via the celebrity real estate gossip grapevine that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have floated a much smaller, mid-construction mansion they own in the L.A.’s guard-gated Bel Air Crest development as an off-market whisper listing with an optimistic sounding asking price of $11 million.

When the publicity generating pair acquired the Bel Air Crest crib in the early days of 2013 for $9 million, the existing residence was a newly rehabbed if fairly stereotypical example of a faux-Tuscan villa mashed with a mock-Med mcmansion with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms in not-quite 9,000 square feet. They quickly gutted the place and embarked an extensive and expensive renovation but, alas, soon caught a classic case of The Celebrity Real Estate Fickle and re-set their real estate sites on celeb-saturated Hidden Hills.

The couple’s new Hidden Hills estate, on the site of Lisa Marie Presley’s former compound and conveniently just around the corner from Momager Kris Kardashian’s manse, has a main house of about 16,000 square foot main house with eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces and eight full and two half bathrooms. Interior living spaces include formal living and dining rooms, a paneled library, a family room, a home theater and a three-island eat-in kitchen while the fully landscaped multi-acre grounds include not just one but two swimming pools, two spas, two built-in barbecue set ups, a pool house, two small vineyards, three fountains and a 1,050-square-foot entertainment pavilion.

What Your Mama wants to know now, of course, is how the equally loved and loathed gossip glossy staples, each a force of nature in their own money-minting ways, will reconcile their decidedly disparate decorative tastes. As evidenced by their previously homes, the bountifully bootied reality star goes for a zhushed up Shabby Chic sort of thing and the prodigiously ego-ed rapper/producer/writer/director/designer/etc. tends toward extreme minimalism and never, children, should those divergent styles meet in a twenty million dollar mansion.

In other celebrity related Hidden Hills real estate news: At just about the exact same time they completed the $40 million purchase of the Brentwood mansion sold by Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, Dr. Dre and Nicole Threat hoisted a pair of vacant residential parcels they own in the Hidden Hills enclave up for sale for $14.5 million. They paid $10.5 million for the parcels that total about 5.79 acres and are just a couple doors down from the mansion Jessica Simpson bought from Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne in October 2012.

    French country farmhouse mansion? Oh pashaw. Not quite sure what that description would look like in France. These faux, faux architectural descriptions have become more entertaining than the actual inhabitants. Whatever. I’m partial to the faux-faux Tuscan villa based on the little that can be seen. Great bones … exterior-wise anyway. Given the sophistication-void owners, the interior re-do is likely a hot mess.

    You need to be standing if he’s gonna sell it to you. Get up you f’in cripple.

    ate the weeny on that one-guess Kimmode isn’t gonna fall back on a real estate career-paid $9 mil gutted and renovated lavishly-for the past what 1 and a half? so ya know they dumped at least $4-5 mil in and now they are doing a “whisper listing” at $11 mil-that means they are shamed epic fail and on top of that bought another for $40 mil?? she shouldn’t count her game cash just yet cause all the cheats are out so you don’t pay that stupid kunttt and the parents have grabbed their credit cards and media grounded their wayward brats-so that “projected” earnings number the media was tossing around for shock value is all hot air-Ray J made it known with his gift to the wedding just how much zKim still gets for the sale of her pornnn video-the clothing line is a joke prop for their TV shows-and that tired mess is on 10 years and after they teased their idiot sheep who actually watch with their extravagant paid for by E! wedding and then didn’t show it-well they might find the end of their “trend” is just about over -they are over exposed and nauseating and if people look their way it is with disgust-can’t wait till we are singing ding dong Kimmode is gone

      I just can’t get over how your “fatal review” is so hard to read, a 3rd grader coulda wrote it. Any valid points are lost in the presentation.
      Re-take your Adderal and try again.

    When is a whore house not a whore house?

    Just asking’.

    • Chuck Raney says:

      Texas. Has a WhoreHouse in it. I watched that one with my retired school teacher grandma. I was unprepared.

      This 2 parcels Mark is on about overlooks Kimye’s new home, 2 doors down from Jessica. (I think)

      • Chuck Raney says:

        Ooopps. I went and looked. Wrong Again. Dang it, I am losing points.
        The new Kimye/oldPresley is just around the corner as Mark says. If their marriage survives being this close to all THAT DRAMA, it’s made in heaven.
        Those 2 lots have to be next to Jessica or overlooking Selena. Both Texas girls I will add. Only place I can see for them on the map.
        2 parcels for 14 Mil is alot of horse chips for raw land. You at least get a mailbox?
