Kim Kardashian and Kanye West house photos and update
As we previously reported, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have purchased a house in Bel Air.
TMZ was the first to report that Kimye and Kanye had purchased a McMansion in Bel Air, however, there was some misinformation about the house in question. They reported the expectant parents had gutted the 10,000 square foot home and planned a 4,000 square foot addition to include a gym, movie theater, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a full-service hair and makeup salon. The under-construction residence shown in the original TMZ story was actually completed in 2010, and already measures more than 20,000 square feet. They have since updated the photo to show the correct house.
The couple who owns the residence pictured on TMZ also owns the 9,000 square foot Mediterranean-style home next door that is listed at $10,750,000. Interestingly, that house had a status change in the MLS listing this morning, indicating that an offer had indeed been made. The sellers are now looking for back-up offers and escrow has been opened.
The Bel Air house sits on a 3/4 acre lot at the end of a dead-end street off the main road. The home has 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. It opens with a grand, two-story entrance with black walnut parquet floors and leads to a living room with cathedral-height ceilings and stone fireplace. A gourmet custom kitchen opens to the back yard, which holds an outdoor living area with a barbecue. The master suite has an enormous bath, a large closet, a sitting area and balcony. And while there has been no knocking down or gutting of the home, sources say the couple is discussing what kind of remodeling would be necessary to make it "their" home.
