Kanye West’s former Hollywood Hills home is listed again for $3.7 million

A chic modernist compound that once belonged to Kanye West is back on the market for $3.7 million.

The 44-year-old rapper — who has now legally changed his name to Ye — lived in the house in the early years of his career. It is located high in the Hollywood Hills, and he is said to have briefly lived there with estranged wife Kim Kardashian, 41.

Kanye’s 4,200-square-foot former house, which is listed by Myles Lewis of Compass, was most recently owned by businessman Rufus Hankey, son of billionaire Don Hankey.

For sale! A Hollywood Hills home formerly owned by Kanye West, 44, is back on the market for $3.7 million. The rapper purchased the home in 2003, before he had released his first LP

The listing advertises the boxy home’s ‘unobstructed jetliner views’ reaching from Downtown Los Angeles all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

The miles-long hillside views will also make entertaining outdoors a pleasure, and the modest fenced-in back lawn for relaxing with friends or stargazing in the evening.

There’s also a small outdoor dining table tucked away to the side for enjoying a meal as the heat dissipates in the evening, or to breakfast as the sun rises. 

The property has plenty of privacy thanks to a gate surrounding the front entrance, and the home boasts a striking all-concrete façade that will appeal to fans of Brutalist architecture.

Storage: Kanye briefly lived in the 4,200-square-foot home with Kim Kardashian, 41, early in their relationship, but they quickly moved into a larger Bel Air mansion. They kept the home until 2017 as storage for her expanding closet; seen in 2019

The home still features a variety of Kanye West touches, including its mostly white color scheme, and Hankey doesn’t appear to have changed much since purchasing the home from Kanye in 2017.

The rapper bought the home in December 2003, before his debut LP had been released and when he was better known as a producer.

He redid the home after purchasing, giving it the Brutalist exterior and minimalist interior design.

The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home was briefly shared with Kim Kardashian early in her relationship with Kanye, but the two soon moved out to a much larger Bel Air mansion, but the Hollywood Hills home stayed in Kanye’s portfolio as a storage space for Kim’s swelling closet.

The couple bought their Hidden Hills home in 2014, but it wasn’t until 2017 that they moved in after renovations, at which point Kanye sold his Hollywood Hills compound for just under $3 million.

Since selling the luxurious Hollywood Hills home, Kanye has moved on to a variety of properties.

Although Kim reportedly is keeping their Hidden Hills home in the divorce, Kanye owns two large Wyoming ranches, and last month People reported that he had purchased a Malibu property on the beach for almost $60 million.
