The house is set on almost an acre of land and includes an equestrian ranch.
Kanye West purchased a single-story property just across the street from Kim Kardashian, two months after she formally transferred the marital home totally into her name.
The rapper spent $4.5 million for the home with little over 3,650 square feet, according to the source, putting down more than $400,000 on a property that was originally listed for $4,079,000.
The property, which was constructed in 1955, was described as a “teardown” by the insider, who added that the sale was made mainly to be near to KK and their children.
“Kanye’s new house is a teardown,” a source disclosed to PEOPLE. “He only bought it for the location. It’s near Kim and the kids. He has a vision for the house and plans on starting construction ASAP.”
“It will be family-friendly. He wants to be able to have the kids over as much as possible. Living only in Malibu was making visits more tricky for Kanye.”
West has been busy in the real estate market recently, having purchased a $57.3 million Malibu beach mansion in September and recently listing his $3.7 million previous bachelor pad. He also made the move after selling one of his cherished Wyoming ranches for $11 million which is still up for sale.
Another insider informed the outlet that when the house went on the market, the “Donda” rapper moved rapidly to close the sale. “When he realized he could buy the house and be near his family he jumped at the idea,” the insider claimed. “He wants to be close by and be there for the kids.”
Recently, West has been outspoken about wanting a second chance with his estranged wife, who has been connected to Saturday Night Live comic Pete Davidson. This relocation is most likely one of them, since he’ll be able to successfully co-parent with Kim.

Kanye West purchasing the house across the street from his almost ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, is the kind of toxicity I live for 😂😂— Ms. LaRue (@Miss_LaRue16) December 27, 2021
I am just a fan but I would not try something like moving across the street from Kim k right now. She has really processed things and has her mind made up. Passed the baby bar, girl do your thing. I value kimye but let’s be real here. @KimKardashian @norisblackbook pic.twitter.com/3ssr00VtkZ— Christine (@Yorkbelladonna) December 27, 2021
Kanye West moving directly across the street from Kim Kardashian is giving very much this energy here. Stop it with the "he just wanna be close to his family.." excuses. He's been begging to get her back while she is moving on. It's toxic. But coddle on.. pic.twitter.com/LN6xH7qX2O— thong song enthusiast. (@thePLAINESTjane) December 27, 2021
