Kanye West’s Luxury Estate Is Rotting Away

New photos of the property obtained by the Daily Mail show a large, gaping hole where the front entrance used to be, debris scattered on the ground, missing roof shingles, overgrown greenery around the house, and portions of the concrete driveway chipped away. Part of the property is concealed by a red covering, and a circular fenced-off area — believed to be the remnants of one of his Yeezy Home dome shelters, initially intended to combat homelessness in Los Angeles — also appears dilapidated.

West purchased the property in 2018 when he was still married to Kim Kardashian, and reportedly spent another $4 million to acquire an additional 300 acres surrounding the property. He initially used the location to host Sunday Services and as the headquarters for his Donda Academy. Although it has been largely uninhabited since 2020, West briefly turned it into a bachelor pad and moved in during their divorce, which was finalized in November 2022. Kardashian retained ownership of their $60 million mansion in Hidden Hills, where she lives with their four children.

The dilapidated property stands in stark contrast to its former glory, where it once featured a stunning floor-to-ceiling stacked-stone fireplace, beautiful inlaid hardwood floors, huge vaulted open-beam ceilings, and a spacious ground-floor master suite with a walk-in closet and spa-style bath, according to TheDaily Mail.

The ranch is not West’s only property that is in disarray.

He is struggling to sell his Malibu mansion, bought in 2021 for $57 million. Despite grand renovation plans, the house, originally built by Richard Sachs in 2013, remains incomplete and in disrepair. In 2022, West hired contractors and began renovations, but within a year, reports emerged that the house — completely open to the elements on one side since the removal of floor-to-ceiling windows — had fallen into disrepair, according to Forbes. Listed at $53 million, it’s $4 million less than his purchase price.
