Kanye West bought a $57 million mansion not far from Kim Kardashian's home
American rapper Kanye West spent $57.3 million on a huge beachfront home in Malibu, California in an off-market deal, real estate portal Dirt writes.
Kanye's new home is just a 30-minute drive from the Hidden Hills complex, where his ex-wife Kim Kardashian lives with their children.
According to the publication, the 4,000-plus-square-foot home came on the market last year for $75 million -- West got a "nice discount." The musician's new home has three floors of guest bedrooms, common areas including a living room and kitchen, and an upstairs "suite" overlooking the sea. The exterior of the house resembles a "military bunker" with tons of concrete and reinforced steel.
"Our real estate sources say the house couldn't sell quickly because it attracts a 'very specific buyer.' The transfer is not for everyone," the publication writes.
It is specified that West bought the house from the previous owner Richard Sachs, a financier who dated actress Ashley Olsen in 2017 вЂ” it was she who commissioned the renovation of the house. The minimalist building was designed by Japanese self-taught architect Tadao Ando, who in 1995 donated the Pulitzer Prize he received to benefit earthquake victims on Honshu Island.
