Kanye West’s original bachelor pad for sale

Recording artist, Kanye West’s first home in the Hollywood Hills has hit the market, with music lovers keen to see where his journey began.

The home, which features clean and sophisticated architecture, is listed for sale at US$3.699 million.

The property was originally purchased in 2003, for US$1.75 million according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

West occupied the bachelor pad when his career was just getting started.

He emerged as a rapper and producer when one of his early tracks, Slow Jamz, went to No.1.

From there, the now forty-four-year-old West hit the ground running with his album The College Dropout and has gone from strength to strength.

The home features hardwood floors, high ceilings, smooth Venetian plaster and abundant natural light.

West’s former house is complete with ocean and city views from every room.

It is filled with sun-drenched formal living spaces, a media room, a primary suite and an ensuite bedroom with a deck.

The veranda begs for candle-lit dinners overlooking the twinkling city lights below.

West has always had a keen interest in architecture, which is nearly as strong as his interest in music and fashion, all of which he places under the umbrella of creativity and art.

Minimalist and somewhat stark in poured concrete and clean lines, West’s preferred architectural-style preferences seemingly have not changed much from his original bachelor pad 18 years ago, to the US$57 million Malibu Beach house he recently purchased.
