When celebrities Kim Kardashian and Kanye West bought their Hidden Hills, California estate in 2014, the listing for the home described it as a French Country “piece de resistance,” and THAT IT WAS, as these images prove (but don’t judge the staging fails). The couple paid $20 million for the property which was once owned by Lisa Marie Presley and located a 5 minute drive from Grandma’s house (Kris Jenner’s Calabasas home). Kim and Kanye left their prior renovated Bel-Air home to seek additional privacy and perhaps venture in a fresh design direction. The sale of their former home was brokered by another reality star, Josh Altman (“Million Dollar Listing, Los Angeles”), and it became one of the most expensive homes ever sold in the Bel-Air Crest neighborhood.

After years of renovation on the Hidden Hills property, Kim and Kanye were finally able to move into the home with their three children in December 2017.

Before the renovation, this Hidden Hills gem boasted 15,000 square feet, three acres, two vineyards, abundant outdoor space, two pools, and an entertainment pavilion with as much square footage as many LA homes. At the time of purchase, there were eight bedrooms and ten bathrooms, but since the property underwent a major renovation, these facts have likely changed.

The grounds have been completely re-landscaped, and the square footage has expanded since more structures were added to the property, including a larger master bedroom and a recording studio. In 2014, other notables included: a beautiful traditional kitchen with three islands, eight fireplaces, “groin vaulted ceilings,” a movie theater, and a showstopping wrought-iron staircase.

What does the property look like $20 million later? It is likely minimal, modern, and far from traditional.

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” may have just scored a slew of new design freaky viewers like me who want to watch it for the interiors, upon learning Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt designed them for Kim and Kanye (and Kanye even collaborated with Vervoordt on the design of a sofa).  Maybe the interiors will be reminiscent of Calvin Klein’s former home designed by Axel Vervoordt.

Do you suppose the couple changed the exterior as well? I’m anxious for sneak peeks, Kimye!

Let’s take a tour of the exterior and interior of this magnificent French Country estate as it was in 2014!

Isn’t the front façade glorious with its symmetry and sophistication? It looks like it could reside in the French countryside, and the gates look charming and not imposing or grandiose.

I am guessing the kitchen was demo’d.

I’m not sure I have seen a configuration like this before with three islands…two work islands, and one for dining. I am trying to ignore how poorly the kitchen is styled. Um. Pasta in fancy glass canisters is maybe not the look I would choose if I am marketing to mega celebrities and billionaires. Why wouldn’t there be fresh flowers everywhere?

More ridiculous and unnecessary staging…

I wonder what you all will think of this sterile dining room…

The home was obviously staged for sale, and the spaces must look entirely different now!

Thank goodness, this impressive library was not staged or furnished with rental furniture! Isn’t it heavenly?

Holy ridiculous staging of a closet island! Whisper words of wisdom…let it be!

I think this is the master bedroom as it was.

    I enjoyed the tour! Love the French Country style, but imagine it looks nothing like it did here now…

    It’s a beautiful home! I love all the tasteful details. You would think you’re looking at a French villa. The three island kitchen is a little weird though.
    I am surprised at the restraint used when the owners are Kim & Kanye.

      What you are seeing is how the home looked in 2014 when they bought it. They have spent $20 million renovating, and we don’t have those after shots yet. 🙂

          Dying to see the renovations! 🙂
