Just before Christmas, Khloé Kardashian, 36, and Kris Jenner, 65, purchased neighboring lots for custom homes in Hidden Hills, the upscale Los Angeles enclave where they and their famous friends have settled in recent years.
At the time, it wasn’t clear how much the mom-and-daughter duo paid for the valuable real estate, where Britney Spears’ home once stood before being demolished. But now, Realtor.com records show that they dropped a combined $37 million for the 3.4-acre property near the edge of the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve.
Reality star Khloé Kardashian, who is 5'10 tall, paid $17 million for a 1.86-acre lot on the same date her momager purchased a $20 million, 1.53-acre corner lot next door, records show. They purchased it from an LLC registered to a small development company called Metro Development Homes, records show.
An apparent $28.3 million of that cash is going directly to construction and development costs, since the land is assessed at (and was listed for) less than $9 million, according to the LA assessors portal.
What could the houses possibly include to cost that much? Kris Jenner’s house is “16,500 square feet, with eight bedrooms and 9.5 baths, and every conceivable amenity — an eight-car garage, covered patios, guesthouse, movie theater, gym, lounge, office and a pool with inset spa,” according to Variety.
Meanwhile, Khloé’s house, which she reportedly purchased with her boyfriend, NBA star Tristan Thompson, clocks in around 10,000 square feet, but not much else is known about it, according to Variety. Both properties have oversize swimming pools with cabanas, pictures show, and are designed in the modern farmhouse architectural style, according to Variety.
Recently, Thompson broke the internet after Sydney Chase reported they hooked up on daughter True Thompon’s birthday party. Nor Caitlyn Jenner, sisters Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kylie or Kendall Jenner, not even the Good American founder reported a word about this, although Tristan left Khloé a romantic message for Mother’s Day.
At the time of the sale, brokers proposed partially completed architectural plans and renderings for a single 18,000-square-foot French-style mansion with an 800-square-foot guest house, a 1,200-square-foot cabana with an indoor spa, a nine-car garage and a studio, according to a Berkshire Hathaway Home Services listing.
The Kardashians appear to have counter-proposed two houses on the then-single lot. The lot included mature trees, a pond area and a tennis court (which the Kardashians appear not to have kept), according to the listing.
