Reality TV star and fashion icon Kim Kardashian recently purchased a Malibu home for $70.4 Million. The Mediterranean-style mansion was formerly owned by supermodel Cindy Crawford before being sold to another owner in June 2018 for $45 Million.
Sitting on Pacific Coast Highway, a gated entrance opens to 3 acres of cliffside property overlooking the Malibu El Sol Beach. The two-story mansion is 7,450 square feet, with 4 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
The home eases from indoor comfort to outdoor entertaining. The kitchen and dining area, with a gourmet island and breakfast bar, has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors which open to a wrap-around deck with seating around a fire pit. The open floor plan living room and sitting areas along with the space for outdoor entertainment are perfect for hosting the ever-growing Kardashian and Jenner Family.
The spiral staircase leads the way up to the mansion’s 4 bedrooms, all surrounding an interior courtyard. Kardashian’s master bedroom includes a private entry, sitting area, immaculate closets, 2 spa worth bathrooms, and a fireplace.
Stepping outside, previous owners carefully crafted landscape surroundings for privacy, making the property visible to none from outside of the gates. Incorporated into the landscaping is a full-sized tennis court and pool. Kardashian and her four children may use their private path to their remote access to Malibu El Sol Beach.
While the property was originally listed at $99.5 Million, this $70.4 Million sale is the largest residential purchase in Malibu this year and the fourth largest in California, as reported by TheDirt.Com. Kardashian will now call Leonardo DiCaprio and Neil Diamond, among others, neighbors.
