By now, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have surely settled in at their tasteful Hidden Hills mansion, not far from Kris Jenner's place, so it makes sense that they're moving toward unloading the tacky Bel Air Crest estate that they've been renovating since they purchased it in 2013 (hopefully to make it less tacky). TMZ hears that the couple are readying to put the Tuscan-inspired McMansion on the market within the next few days, and that the house will be asking "more than $20 million." Kim and Kanye paid $9 million, and reportedly dropped $2 million on renovations.
Shortly after buying the house, the British press reported that the couple's deep renovations included things like a fridge covered in Swarovski crystals, a million-dollar security system, and four gold-plated toilets. We'll have to wait for the listing photos to see whether those items ever made it into the house. Last September, perhaps fed up with trying to turn the estate into their dream home, Kim and Kanye reportedly whisper-listed the half-finished house for $11 million.
Judging from aerial photos, it looks like the mansion is finally complete. The exterior's been toned down a bit and the landscaping's been installed. Though $20 million or more might seem like a lot to ask, TMZ's real estate sources predict that it's not unlikely that the house will sell at asking or above.
