Kim Kardashian has reportedly purchased this house in Bel Air, California, with boyfriend Kanye West for nearly $11 million. It’s brand new and in “an über-private, gated community” where the monthly HOA fees alone are what a lot of us would consider mortgage payments ($933/month). Hundreds of readers have been searching my blog for photos of it this week, so I rounded them up for you:
It’s brand spankin’ new and has 9,000 square feet but TMZ reports that the celebrity couple known as “Kimye” is already gutting it to expand it to 14,000.
They have a new baby on the way, and we all know how much space babies and all their stuff take up! I just hope 14,000 square feet will be enough for the little tyke…
Celebrity Net Worth estimates that it will cost them between $60,000-$70,000 a month to pay for things like insurance, taxes, HOA fees, and of course that hefty mortgage payment, assuming they put 20% down.
I’ve been kind of skeptical about whether they really bought it since news broke about it last week. The listing still said “active” even though they supposedly had already started remodeling it, so I put off posting about it.
This morning the listing finally changed to “pending,” but you never know with celebrity real estate gossip until they actually move in. I’ve been burned by it before (remember that Cape Cod beach house Taylor Swift supposedly bought?).
According to Hollyscoop, real estate agent Mauricio Umansky, the hunky husband of Real Housewives star Kyle Richards, sold them the house.

P.S. I know a lot of you love to hate the Kardashians, but Kim’s house that she lived in as a single girl (before her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries) continues to be the #1 most popular celebrity house on my blog:
Jennifer Aniston lives nearby in Bel Air, and my post about her house happens to be #2:
