It appears as if Kanye West may finally be ready to leave Wyoming behind and head to Malibu.
According to Dirt, the rapper and fashion mogul has spent $57.3 million in an off-market deal for a 3,665 square feet, Tadao Ando-designed home. Sure, that’s a big price tag (though it’s not exactly Weeknd Bel Air big), but it’s actually a “bargain.” The listing was originally offered at $75 million last year, before being removed from the market.
Part house, part sculpture, the four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bath residence spans three levels and backs right up to the beach. Quite visually stark, the structure reportedly required 1,200 tons of poured concrete, 200 tons of steel reinforcement and 12 pylons driven 60 feet into the ground, supporting the heavy house from sinking into the sand, per Dirt.
West bought the home from retired Wall Street financier Richard Sachs. Their off-market deal marks the the second-largest of the year in Malibu. The top spot belongs to WhatsApp’s Jan Koum $87 million purchase in early 2021.
