One of my biggest life goals is to have a pool. A simple wish, but still unreachable because real estate is SO pricey these days and if you want to live anywhere less than say, 15 minutes from the CBD, you’re gonna be paying that puppy off for a lonnngggg time, minus the luxury of daily laps in your own backyard.
Unless you’re a Kardashian-West, that is. Kimmy and Kanye purchased their slice of paradise from Lisa Marie Presley in the city and gated community of Hidden Hills back in 2014 for a reported $20 mil and they’ve been working on it for yonks. After chipping in an additional $20 mil on a major reno, their Cali property is now worth over 60 MILLION DOLLARS. Sixty million. I could legit buy about 50 homes where I live for that sort of coin.
But of course, this isn’t your standard three bedroom, two bathroom home in the ‘burbs like we trawl on realestate.com.au. It’s been reported that their new digs feature a double story play room, hair salon, recording studio, 10 bedrooms, eight bathrooms, full spa with a room for facials and massages, massive gym and full size theatre. And now, TMZ have reported that they’re putting in a ‘UGE pool that’s 20 feet wide by 60 feet long for $50k and a ‘guard shack’ for $12k.
Wowza. Can you even imagine what the monthly repayments on that baby would be? But I reckon it’s pretty safe to say that Kimye are probably living a mortgage-free life.
