Back in 2013, Kim K and Kanye West bought their now “old home” for $11 million and have been making renovations to the 9000-square-foot house ever since. They recently sold it, however, for an impressive price of $17.8 million, more than one-and-a-half times the price they originally paid for it.
The sale was made with the assistance of Million Dollar Listing’s Josh and Matt Altman, and is now the most expensive home ever sold in Bel-Air Crest.
“When they first bought this home, it had a very Mediterranean feel,” Josh shared. “Now, it’s been transformed into a very modern, minimalist style, but so beautiful.”
Its new owner is philanthropist and entrepreneur, Marina Acton. “Marina was looking for a creative and inspiring space, a place where she can be in her zone and work on her music,” says Josh. “She loved this house and the energy.”
So why the move for the Kardashian-West family? Kim shared that,“When we bought our Bel-Air house, we didn’t have a baby, we weren’t even pregnant. 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. We wanted to be away and have more privacy.”
They found that privacy in the form of a $20 million estate in Hidden Hills, California that sits on 3.5 acres and is complete with two swimming pools, spas, and its very own vineyard.
