The parents-to-be are spending big money for the mansion in Bel Air, California
(Yahoo!) - Welcome to Kasa Kimye!
A source confirms to omg! that parents-to-be Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have plunked down $11 million for a sprawling mansion in gated Bel Air, California, just six months before they’re set to get a visit from the stork. TMZ reports that the couple purchased the 10,000-square-foot residence weeks ago – before the world knew about their baby news – and immediately began renovating it, giving it an extra 4,000-square-feet of space.
Once it’s complete, the Italian-style villa – which is right down the road from neighbors Jennifer Aniston, NBA star Chris Paul, and Kardashian family friend, “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis – will boast a hair and makeup salon, movie theater, gym, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor pool and an outdoor pool.
“It’s so exciting for them,” a source tells People. “The house is gorgeous. And they really wanted and needed the privacy.”
The new home is not only safely tucked away from prying eyes, but it's also a good 15 miles away from Calabasas, where Kardashian's momager, Kris Jenner, lives with husband Bruce Jenner and their two teen daughters. Although the distance may not seem far, in L.A. traffic that could translate to quite a drive.
Buying a home together is a big deal! Last May, not long after they first started dating, the rapper moved into Kardashian’s abode and put his three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath Hollywood Hills home on the market for $3.995 million. A month later, that same pad was robbed while West, 35, was on tour in England. According to real estate site, Zillow.com, it never sold and was likely taken off the market.
