Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West Sell Bel Air Mansion in Off-Market Deal

Location:
Los Angeles, Calif.
Price:
$17.8 million
Size:
(approx.) 9,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms

Reality TV super-diva Kim Kardashian West and 21-time Grammy winning rapper, fashion designer and entrepreneur Kanye “Yeezy” West sold their customized Bel Air mansion in a hugely publicized, off-market deal valued at $17.8 million. The wildly popular is sometimes polemical couple purchased the property in early 2013 for $9 million and spent the next two years and a considerable fortune on a down-the-studs, spare-no-expense renovation that transformed an opulently appointed faux-Tuscan villa into rigorously pared down contemporary with severely minimalist interiors awash in a sophisticated and monochromatic palette of greys. The approximately 9,000-square-foot residence, inside the guarded gates of the Bel Air Crest development and next door to a similarly sized Mediterranean mansion comedian Kathy Griffin picked up last year for $10.5 million, has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms while the back of the house opens to stone patios, a broad lawn and an open-air cabana alongside a newly repositioned swimming pool and over-sized spa with panoramic canyon overlook.

The buyer was identified by the property gossips at Mansion Global as Marina Acton, a somewhat under-the-rader Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist who’s based the Bay Area but wants to spend more time in Los Angeles to jumpstart a singing career. So the story goes, she was looking for a house in which she could install a recording studio and Kim K. herself toured Acton through the property.

Seller and buyer were represented by Josh and Matt Altman, a.k.a. The Altman Brothers, at Douglas Elliman and the buyer also by The Altman Brothers as well as Bay Area agents Sandy Papale and Joel Goodrich of Coldwell Banker Previews.

About a year after they purchased the Bel Air mansion they’ve just sold, the social media powerhouses — he had more than 27 million followers on Twitter before he mysteriously shuttered his account earlier this year and she has an astonishing 104 million followers on her selfie-centric Instagram — shelled out $22.675 million for an elegant, spec-built French Country farmhouse-style mansion in the guard-gated and celebrity stacked Hidden Hills enclave in L.A.’s far western suburbs. The estate has been under near constant renovation since they bought it but at the time of their purchase the main house, on land once owned by Lisa Marie Presley, measured in at close to 16,000-square-feet with eight bedrooms, eight fireplace, and eight full and two half bathrooms.

Earlier this year Kardashian West coughed up $1.6 million in cash for a condo in an upscale condo complex in Calabasas, Calif. — her mother Kris Jenner bought two condos in the same complex for a total of $3.147 million — and West, who maintains two apartments in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood he acquired in the mid-Aughts in two transactions that totaled $3.14 million and subsequently combined and had done up in a severely minimalist manner by acclaimed Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin, sold a multi-story residence in the foothills above Hollywood in July (2017) in an off market deal valued at $2.95 million.
