Whose house? It is your home.
Kim Kardashian, as part of her divorce from Kanye West, will keep the 15,000-square-foot mansion in Southern California that the former couple bought in 2014, TMZ reported.
Kardashian and West shelled out $ 20 million for the spread, located in Hidden Hills, and then invested another $ 20 million in a massive renovation allegedly spearheaded by West himself.
TMZ noted that the decision allows the former couple’s four children (North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 1) to remain in the only home they have ever known. Kardashian has said that she loves the house and has most of her family within a block.
Meanwhile, West is reported to have little ties to the exclusive enclave. He has also spent a lot of time in Wyoming recently after purchasing a 9,000-acre ranch in Cowboy State in 2019. It is unclear where he will reside permanently after the apparently amicable divorce. Kardashian is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the children.
In the upscale area, located in the Santa Monica Mountains north of Los Angeles, the former couple’s Alex Vervoordt-designed home received a cover story in Architectural Digest in March 2020. It was notably characterized by marked minimalism in design.
“We are not talking about decoration, but about a kind of philosophy about how we live now and how we will live in the future,” Vervoordt told AD.
That philosophy is wabi-sabi, a hallmark of Japanese design that promotes “wisdom in natural simplicity.” That resulted in minimal furniture, natural materials, and rooms lined with an off-white plaster, which critics on social media called not only “cold and scary,” but also impractical with children.
The home also has cavernous hallways, two pools, a vineyard, and a single sink that only costs $ 30,000.
Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February after seven years of marriage.
