More than seven years after it first appeared on the market, Kanye West has finally found a buyer for his Hollywood Hills home, as the LA Times reports.

The rapper/fashion designer/possible 2020 presidential candidate bought the contemporary-style home in 2003, just prior to the release of his first album. The 4,214-square-foot home features three bedrooms and four bathrooms distributed across multiple levels with amenities that include a home theater, several balconies, and a massive fish tank in the master bathroom.

Previous listing material has highlighted other intriguing design features, including a den with a cartoon character theme and the fact that the home is evidently “controlled by built in computers.”

The Times reports that West paid $1.75 million for the 2002-built residence and parted with it in an off-market sale for $2.95 million. That’s a little less than the $3.3 million asking price the house carried when it was last listed in 2013.

West and his wife, Kim Kardashian, have been very active in the Los Angeles real estate scene since then. In 2014, they purchased a $20 million mansion on three acres in Hidden Hills, and the pair also still own an amenity-rich Italianate Villa in Bel Air, which they paid $9 million for in 2013 and are still trying to sell.
