Rapper and producer Kanye West and his wife, television personality Kim Kardashian, recently bought an estate behind gates in Hidden Hills that had been listed at $21.25 million, The Times has confirmed.
The couple purchased the French countryside-inspired compound through a trust last month, public records show, but the exact sales price has not yet appeared. Multiple media reports have pegged it at about $20 million.
Wooden gates open to the new stone-clad house, which sits on three acres with vineyards, fountains, mature trees and expansive lawns.
Inside, the 15,667 square feet of living space includes living and dining rooms, a home theater, a game room with a wet bar, a paneled library, a gym, eight fireplaces, eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
The kitchen, with three islands, opens to a family room. There’s a separate office and guesthouse.
Two swimming pools, two spas, two barbecue centers and a 1,050-square-foot entertainment pavilion complete the grounds.
West, 37, is among the most-awarded recording artists of all-time with 21 Grammys. The festival mainstay headlined last week’s Made in America event in downtown Los Angeles. He and Kardashian, 33, were married in May.
She stars on the reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" (2007-present).
The sale closed outside of the Multiple Listing Service, but agents not authorized to comment on the transaction identified Marc Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and Tomer Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty as having handled the deal.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
