People might have thought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were odd for naming their daughter North West, but now the celebrity couple want to name their mansion after “Downton Abbey,” Radar Online reported. “Downton Abbey,” for those who don’t know, is the name of the estate owned by the fictional Crawley family in the PBS series with the same name.
Kardashian and West reportedly want to call their new home “Highclere Castle,” which is the castle shown in the exterior shots for “Downton Abbey.” “[Kanye] wants the home to resemble Downton in its grandeur and ‘regalness’ and there will be a sign naming it Highclere Castle,” a source told The Sun, according to Radar Online.
“Kanye loves calling Kim ‘lady,'” the source said. “He basically thinks he’s an even cooler version of Lord Grantham.” (Lord Grandtham is a lead character in the show.)
The couple bought a $20 million home in Los Angeles’ Hidden Hills neighborhood on 3.5 acres after they quietly listed their unfinished Bel Air mansion for $11 million, Radar Online wrote in September. They reportedly bought the old property for $9 million.
They are currently living with Kardashian’s mom and manager, Kris Jenner, while their house undergoes renovations.
Kardashian has a few acting credits on her resume, and she would relish at the shot to appear on “Downton Abbey.” “I’m a big fan,” she reportedly has said. “I’d love to be on it if they asked.”
The reality star, 34, is a big fan of Halloween and dressed up as Vogue editor Anna Wintour this year. North West, who normally matches her mama, dressed as a skunk.
Though the latest series of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” has ended, a spinoff series, “Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons,” will air on E! Sunday at 9 p.m. EST.
