Kanye bought the house in December to be near to Kim and their four kids.
When he purchased it, People said he intended to build it quickly.
Kanye’s new home is a wreck. Just for the location. It’s close to Kim’s. So he’s planning to start building as soon as possible,’ People reported in December.
He bought it, a source told The New York Post, “just to be near to his kids and be able to see them at any time.”
Kanye spent $4.5 million for the 1955 home, $421,000 above the asking price to avoid being outbid.
The property is 3,651 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on 1.07 acres of land.
There is a huge outdoor pool and a horse corral with three stables.

Kim filed for divorce in February 2021 and was legally single in March while they sorted out custody.
She stated this in an interview with Amanda Hirsch for her podcast Not Skinny But Not Fat.
‘We don’t really communicate right now, but I believe that’s acceptable sometimes,’ she remarked. ‘We’ll. We will. That’s me.’
‘I spent a decade with this individual, and I adore him. That won’t change, but that doesn’t imply they’re the perfect one for you,’ Kim added.
‘We spent around eight months without ever speaking to one other before the divorce,’ she added.
‘Then we talked again, and I went to the Donda premiere. He’d still see the kids.
