The rumor mill is running on all cylinders over the news that the with-child duo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have just dropped about $11 million on a new Mediterranean mansion in Bel Air. TMZ first broke the news, saying “Kim and Kanye made the deal a few weeks ago … and they’ve already gutted it and are designing a 14,000-square-foot dream home in its place. The new home will be an Italian-style villa … with a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool … oh and probably a baby nursery.”
If this is indeed K & K’s new krib, there’s no doubt that they’ll make some changes to the interior. According to The Real Estalker, Kanye’s current and former residences are more sleek and contemporary than this home. Kim has always had a flair for the flamboyant, so this house looks more her style than his. It’s likely that we’ll eventually find out what the unwed pair do to the home when the reality TV cameras inevitably invade the home.
For now, we’ll chew on this rumor a little more, wait for the property records to officially come through, and review some of the details on their rumored abode.
According to the listing, the three-quarter-acre estate is situated on a view-commanding ridgeline. Designed by architect Ron Firestone, custom craftsmanship and old world details are combined with every modern amenity. Hand forged wrought iron and glass front doors open up to the two story formal entry with black walnut parquet floors. A two-story living room, flanked by Cantera stone columns, overlooks the rear grounds and mountains beyond. The great room includes wide-planked floors, beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace, bar, and stone wine cellar. The library serves as a warm respite, detailed in rich woods and a burgundy marble fireplace. The master suite has spectacular views from every window, a fireplace, sitting room, large walk-in closet, and changing area. The master bathroom has large steam shower, spa tub, and even a massage room. The massive backyard is a dream with sweeping lawns, an infinity edged pool, and a loggia that serves as an outdoor living room and kitchen. Mercy!
