Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on track to own a $20-million Hidden Hills mansion on land that once belonged to Lisa Marie Presley, according to reports out Wednesday.

With luck, they'll actually make it into this place; an $11-million home purchase in Bel-Air more than 18 months ago turned into a massive build-over project. The couple, who've been holed up with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner in Calabasas for more than a year, decided in July that they would flip the Bel-Air place.

Photos of the Hidden Hills estate first went up on TMZ on Wednesday afternoon, with E! News following moments later with its own confirmation of the in-escrow news.

Kardashian later confirmed that she and her husband were planning to get the heck out of Jenner's place soon, telling People that her move-in date "might be a few months, but I'm not sure.

"We just found a new, amazing place," the reality TV star said, keeping any details to herself.

"They wanted more land than the Bel-Air home, so they are flipping that and will have the two homes now," a source told E! "But they will sell that and move into Hidden Hills."

With their daughter North West, the couple will move into the place as-is, a source told Us Weekly. "They have no plans to tear it down or anything like that."

Well of course there's no need for a build-over on this joint, because that's already been done.

When Presley owned the property, Hot Property noted, it had about 8,000 square feet of living space, with only five bedrooms and 5.5 baths in the main house. There was also a one-bedroom guesthouse, an annex/studio with a sound booth and a second-story guest unit, and a three-stall barn with a bedroom and a half-bath on just over 3 acres.

Price tag back then? Around $5 million.

The current residence, completed in 2012 after a doctor had the place razed in 2011, boasts eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms in 15,667 square feet of living space, according to a listing on Zillow. The kitchen is big enough for three islands, and the family room, dining room and master suite all feature fireplaces. Plus there's a 1,050-square-foot "entertaining pavilion," which presumably is a thing used for entertaining.

There are two vineyards too. Because really, one is never enough.

A Google Earth view shows that one of the pools, an irregularly shaped one with a slide, has been retained from the Presley era. Something old, something new, and all that.

Kardashian had gone on a wordy Twitter tear Tuesday about needing to lose 15 to 20 pounds.

"ughhhh," she wrote. "my hips & butt are huge now! they were big to begin with!"

The good news? She'll soon have enough rooms at her disposal to make losing just about anything very, very easy.
