Kanye West Selling his Hollywood Home for $3.9 Million

Kanye West appears to be moving on to bigger and better things, as he recently put his $3,995,000 Hollywood house up for sale. The 3 bedroom/3.5 bathroom 4,214 square foot house, which was originally purchased in 2003 for $1,750,000, combines contemporary interior design with pop art. A life-size Buzz Lightyear figurine, Burton Morris’ Jetsons paintings, Takashi Murakami’s plush toys, and a fish tank in the bathroom are just a few of the many intriguing features of Kanye’s pad. If you had the funds, would you buy? I believe it would be a mistake not to, because it would definitely, as Mr. West would say, put your “swagga on a hundred thousand trillion.”

It seems as though the recently reported Fleur de Lys ($125,000,000), which was being described as the most expensive house on the market and was grabbing media attention because of Mariah & Nick’s offer for the estate, has just been upstaged by widow Candy Spelling’s $150,000,000  Holmby Hills mansion entitled the “The Manor”. This grandiose estate located in Los Angeles has now become the most expensive house on the market. Take a look at a satellite birds eye view of the estate here.

The 100+ room mansion was constructed in 1991 in place of  Bing Crosby’s house by Candy Spelling’s husband, famous Hollywood TV producer Aaron Spelling, who died in  2006 at the age of 83. The gated 4.7 acre, 56,500 sq-ft Spelling Mansion features 11 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms including a barber shop and beauty parlor in the attic, china storage room, wine seller and wine tasting room, a humidity controlled silver storage room, a projection room where the screen rises from the ground with paintings, gift wrapping room, and a bowling alley in the basement. The exterior features a spa and swimming pool complex, a tennis court, a rose garden on the roof, and an extravagant motor parking lot with enough space to carry 100 high-end vehicles.

Now that’s one big and expensive house. I wonder who will become the new owner? It could end up being Mariah & Nicks, you never know because they’re going after the top notch, so it’s not out of the question, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Have you ever dreamed of having a luxury house that’s not constrained by land but free like the sea? Well now that dream can actually come true with X-Architects’ houseboat, which  merges the warm elegance of a modern home and the graceful sailings of a cruise ship satisfying the unquenchable desire for scenery and adventure. X-Architects worked hand in hand with interior decorator architect and design consultant from Squisito, Leen Vandaele in order to construct this floating masterpiece.

This houseboat is 65.62 feet by 21.98 feet made up of stainless steel and glass stabilized with two catamaran beams. The upper deck contains living and dining room areas along with a discrete kitchen while bedrooms, bathrooms and the steering cabin remain on the lower deck. The interior of the boathouse contains large windows enabling a great view of the horizon, a spiraling staircase, and a clean white design that complements the exterior of the house. Although the houseboat is located in Dubai Marina, Dubai I  can assure you that having a house like this will surely separate you from the rest, literally and will easily impress the ladies (Chic Magnet Alert!). Plus you won’t even have to worry about annoying neighbors anymore because you live in the sea.

This magnificent  fusion of timber, leather and stainless steel, and fully one of a kind portable fireplace sits on a brushed or polished stainless steel swivel base. The EcoSmart Zeta fireplace was designed by John Dimopoulos, director of Geoform, Design & Architects Firm in Sydney and the first architect ever to specify EcoSmart Fires in Australia, the EcoSmart Zeta fireplace is so-named because of its elliptical shape and pays homage to its Greek ‘origins’.

The plywood body of the fire is shaped from a high frequency heated aluminum mold into the perfect elliptical shape. A thin stainless steel firebox insert is molded to the internal face of the plywood, and the outer surface is upholstered in leather. The toughened glass screens that sit either side of the fire enhance the stunning visual effect created by the flame. The Zeta is fueled by denatured ethanol, an environmentally friendly, renewable energy.

Louis Vuitton has recently released a monogram blanket and its current retail price is $1,080.00. I’m a big fan of Louis Vuitton’s merchandise  but I can’t help but wonder if this blanket sings a lullaby to its owner or turns into a masseuse to provide the best massage on the planet when laid upon based on its price tag..lol. For those that can afford to live in style 24hrs of the day and I mean this literally, the blanket can be purchased at www.eluxury.com.
