After several attempts to hook a buyer, rapper and fashion designer Kanye West has quietly sold his longtime home in Hollywood Hills West for $2.95 million.
Built in 2002, the multilevel house features sweeping views, open-plan spaces and plenty of character. Of note is a cartoon-like mural in the dining room and a fish tank in the master bathroom. A modern chandelier tops the bar area.
A formal entry, a breakfast room, a den, a home theater, three bedrooms and four bathrooms are within more than 4,200 square feet of living space. Balconies on three levels allow for indoor-outdoor living.
The purchase took place outside the Multiple Listing Service. West previously listed the house for sale in 2010 for $3.995 and, more recently, in 2013 for $3.3 million. Records show he bought the property in 2003 $1.75 million.
West, 40, is one of the bestselling hip-hop artists of all-time. Among his records is "The College Dropout," "Graduation" and "Yeezus." Last year he released the album "The Life of Pablo."
