Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick have just purchased the Calabasas estate of former NFL star wide receiver and current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson.
Located just down the street from troubled pop star Justin Bieber, Johnson had a much-publicized feud with Justin after he was caught speeding uncontrollably in his white Ferrari through their residential neighborhood while young children played in the streets.
Originally listed and then delisted in 2011, the home popped back onto the market for December 2012 for $10.5 million. As Johnson’s issues with Bieber started to escalate, the asking price on his home started to drop. By February 2013, he’d chopped another $1.6 million off asking, but still couldn’t find a buyer. With his unruly neighbor continuing to cause him grief, Johnson decided to reduce the price yet again – slicing $400k off – bringing the home to $8.495 million. At that price, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick swooped in and took the incredible home off Johnson’s hands.
Unruly pop star neighbor aside, Kourtney and Scott’s new house is a custom gem in the celebrity-infested Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas. Nestled inside the gated “Estates at the Oaks” community, the home sits on a huge 1.86 acre lot that boasts views and privacy. Inside, 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms are also joined by a chef’s kitchen, game and children’s play room, spa, sauna, elevator and theater.
The grounds of the estate include covered patios with an outdoor fireplace, sunken basketball/sports court, a pool with spa and expansive rolling lawns.
At 11,746 square feet, Kourtney is getting her wish for a new home: lots and lots of space. “Our family is bigger…I’d like to have a guest room and more space outside for the kids,” Kourtney told Domaine.com when she listed her much smaller home in Calabasas for $3,499,000.
