Hip-hop producer/rapper Kanye West is selling his Hollywood Hills home for $3,995,000. And, no — that sale price is not a typo, missing an extra digit.
There are a couple of surprises in this listing: #1 is that West, who is #46 on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list, has a home with a price tag of “only” $4 million; and #2, that the controversial and outspoken rapper has a home with such minimalist tastes. And, therein lies the contradiction of West.
Take a look at the photos of West’s home on this post — they are the work of Italian designer Claudio Silvestrin, whose style is described as “… austere but not extreme, contemporary yet timeless, calming but not ascetic, strong but not intimidating, elegant but not ostentatious, simple but not soulless.” Claudio has a pretty cool website, too.
Built in 2002, the home has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, built-in computers in every room, a theater, and room for a pool. What? No pool?
