They bought the house in the posh Bel Air Crest neighborhood around four years ago for $9 million and, in typical fashion for the couple, set about on a costly renovation, ripping the original Mediterranean-style pad down to its studs and replacing it with a “minimalist and modern” structure, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The buyer has been revealed as Marina Acton, a Ukrainian entrepreneur that is swapping San Francisco for Los Angeles in order to pursue a singing career. Her new neighbor will be comedienne Kathy Griffin, who moved into the $10 million-plus house next door at the end of last year.
After selling up in Bel Air, Kardashian and West have a choice of homes they can move into, including a $20 million farmhouse-style mansion that they snapped up in 2014 in the celebrity-filled Hidden Hills neighborhood, joining the likes of Jennifer Lopez.
The 16,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom property was previously owned by Lisa-Marie Presley, and they also bought the house next door for just under $3 million. Unsurprisingly, they have been renovating both ever since.
It also emerged recently that Kardashian paid $1.6 million for a condo at the Avanti condominium in Calabasas in an off-market deal. Her mother, Kris Jenner, also bought two apartments at the same complex.
West, meanwhile, still owns a minimalist apartment in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, for which he paid $1.25 million for in 2006. Designed by Claudio Silvestrin, it looks more like a modern art gallery than a living space.
Reps for Kardashian and West did not respond to request for comment.
